How to attach the wooden dowel (26:04 YouTube video)
Once you are done with your last stitch of this wall hanging, ch 1 and turn. Grab your wooden dowel and make a SC around it for the entire row (36 (26) SC around the dowel). Once you are done with your last SC around the dowel, continue with a FCH for 36 (26) chains, slip st on the other side,
weave in the ends.
HOW TO MAKE THE STRIPES (31:18 YouTube video)
Stripes are very easy as it’s done in TRC row.
You have two options how to start.
1. FCH - you make 38 (28) ch
ROW 1 - Insert your hook into your 4th ch from the hook (first 3 skipped chains count as a first TRC), TRC until the end. In total 36 (26) sts.
- if you decide to make the FCH and first row separately, leave a little longer tail at the end so you can attach the row on your one side right away to your organizer.
2. FTRC - you make 36 (26) TRC. If you’d like to learn how to make Foundation Single/Double/Triple Crochet, feel free to visit this video where I explain this technique. Highly recommended!
- if you decide to make the FTRC leave a little longer tail at the beginning and also at the end. With those tails you can attach the stripe to your organizer.
On the picture you can see the difference with the tail between FTRC row and FCH and 1 row. With your FTRC row you leave both tails a bit longer to attach the stripe to your organizer. With your FCH and 1 row you have both tails on one side. In that case you need to get a new yarn for the other side to attach the stripe.
How to attach your stripes to your organizer (38:49YouTube video)
1. Grab your stitch markers (as many as you need for your hats) and insert them in to your 13th, 25th, 37th, 49th, 61st . . . etc. row as you see on the picture (the picture shows the organizer for 5 hats). The row should be always the DC row.
2. Now grab your stripe and align it with the 13th row (or any row where you have the stitch marker) and attach the sides.
IF you make the version for the glasses it’s up to you what side you want to have them on. On the picture it is on the left side but it can be easily done on the right side as well.
FOR the glasses version, you attach the side first and then you weave the yarn through the 10 stitches on the bottom row as you see on the picture. Once you are at the 10th st from the side, then you weave the yarn through the stitch and the organizer so the stripe is divided for two parts.
Ta-da! Your Baseball Hat Organizer is done and now you can have your hats nicely organized. Don't hesitate to share your finished project with me! I would love to see your work!
