Bella Swan La Push Crochet Hat Pattern from Twilight Movie (2008)

I decided to use my amazing Google skills to see if anyone had made the crocheted hat Bella Swan wears during the Twilight movie's La Push scene (where she goes with her friends to the beach and learns about werewolves and vampires from Jacob). I can't say I was crazy about the hat, but I remembered looking at it and thinking it looked simple enough to make and still pretty cool (not all neat things need to be difficult).


Bella's Twilight La Push Hat Photo and Pattern



Materials:
  • 1 skein Caron Simply Soft in grey (or whatever color you prefer, but Bella's is grey)
  • 5.5mm crochet hook
  • 1 large-eyed needle (for weaving in ends)

Some pre-pattern info:I imagine you can use most worsted-weights single-stranded and accomplish the same feat; however, most of us know that Caron is not your typical worsted weight, so I double-stranded the whole thing. It's not a bad result at all. Just play around with the yarn until you're able to get the proper size to fit over your head :)

To make it look more like Bella's hat, you would use a thinner yarn and more rows in between the BPdc's, adding more length as you go. I kind of like the chunkier look.

As always, please let me know if you find any errors in my pattern :)

Special Stitches:
FPtr: Yarn over twice, insert hook around the post (from the front side of your work) of the stitch indicated; yo and draw up a lp (4 lps on hk); yo and draw through two lps (3 lps on hk); yo and draw through two lps (2 lps on hk); yo and draw through two lps (1 lp on hk)
