The Love Patch: A Crochet Pattern

This hat has gotten a lot of love. Pun not intended (okay maybe it was). I originally made this hat for Halloween, and I stuck googly eyes all over it so she could be a spider. I thought to myself, "how can I re-purpose this hat"?  Here is what I came up with. I decided to add a patch to it.

This patch was a quick fix that gives a plain hat huge impact. The patch is 3 in by 3 in. I added some embroidery for Valentines Day. I'm really pleased with it.

  • yarn: Plymouth Covington medium weight cotton yarn, color #2002 sand 
  • hook:  Size G/7 4.5MM
  • Sharp tapestry needle
  • different colors of embroidery thread
Size: 3 inches by 3 inches

Row 1: Ch 13, sc in 2nd chain and in each chain across for a total of 12 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across for a total of 12 sc.
Row 3- 12: repeat row 2
Edging: Ch 1, do not turn, sc in the side post of the sc just made in row 12, sc in each side post moving down to row 1, ch 1, sc in each sc of row 1, ch 1, sc in each of the side posts moving up to row 12, ch 1, sl st into first sc of row 12. Finish off. Weave in your ends.

Easy peasy, Okay can we be honest with each other for a second. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to making a chart for embroidery but I tried and I can try again, and I probably will. But I made you a little chart. I have no idea if it will be helpful, but its here.

I used the back stitch to write out the letters. I made two woven roses on each side of the word love. for the leaves I made 4 long stitches next to each other at different sizes. I also added one lazy daisy flower on each side. There is also a french knot inside of the rose.
