The Yarn

To crochet the Bellus Hat I used scrap yarn, unfortunately I couldn’t remember the yarn name or brand. I think it’s a really good thing to use scrap yarn when you crochet & you can find scrap yarn crochet ideas here.

Because of the fact that I didn’t know the yarn brand, I’ve searched for a substitute that works 100 % for this pattern. The final look might be different, but you could also use your own scrap yarn.

If you’d like a substitute, you should try Rowan Felted Tweed Aran.

The  Bellus Hat is designed with winter in mind. It’s the perfect pattern when you want to use some leftover yarn, because you don’t need much more than a couple of skeins.

I always buy way to much yarn when I make garments & this is the perfect pattern for those left over skeins.

While the crochet Bellus Hat is a scrap yarn crochet project, it’s also made with Christmas in mind. The crochet headband is definitely a great gift for Christmas. First of all it doesn’t take too long to crochet, but still it has all the details that makes it an interesting gift.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger. Learn more about testing gauge.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.

If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin, to make the pattern easier to follow.
