Camel Stitch Hat Crochet Pattern

This post- Camel Stitch Hat crochet pattern-  may contain affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase from the links below, I will get a small percentage of the sales at no additional cost to you. Thank you for your continued support! 

The Camel Stitch Hat is such a great design, not only because of the awesome stitch, but also because it comes with 3 brim options! You can make this hat with a ribbed brim, as shown above, a front post brim, or a bonnet style brim with tassels! The camel stitch is also a really fun, textured stitch to use that works up fairly quick! I have a tutorial on how to do the camel stitch HERE

The sample pictured above uses Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice yarn. This is a yarn that I haven’t used much in the past but I really love the tweed yarn options that they have so when I want a good tweed, it is my go-to. This colorway that I used in the photos is called Grey Marble!

The Nova Shrug- Free Crochet Pattern + Yarn Review

Today I want to share with your my review of KT and the Squid’s hand dyed yarn AND a new free pattern I created with it, the Nova Shrug!

Nova Shrug

Hand dyed yarn is my new obsession! I have never actually dyed yarn myself but I am so in awe of those who do it! To create different colorways and styles is just so amazing to me!

I recently purchased some hand dyed yarn from KT and the Squid. Katy is a fellow crochet and knit pattern designer and blogger who also hand dyes yarn! She has some of the most beautiful crochet designs I have ever seen! Her hand dyed yarn is just as beautiful!

Katy has a variety of yarns to choose from. You can choose from fingering weight to worsted weight yarn. All of her yarn bases are sourced from farms that are cruelty free and she hand dyes each and every skein herself!

I purchased 2 skeins of the colorway Pajama Pants because I instantly fell in love with the rich tones of blue, gray, and dark pink right away! I knew I wanted to design something with it as soon as I received it in the mail!

Nova Shrug

This yarn is amazing! I wasn’t sure if it would be scratchy or feel heavy from the dye, but I can honestly say it is very soft, very smooth, and not heavy at all. It’s easy to work with, and crochets up like a dream.  I think it’s also worth saying, because I change my mind so often, it frogs (rip it, rip it) really well too. I started the design one way, got about halfway through it, and then changed my mind and pulled it all apart. It was still so smooth and came apart very easily. There’s nothing more frustrating than a pilling yarn that won’t come undone without getting tangled or stuck together. I can gladly say this is not the case with KT and the Squid yarn.

I’m excited to be able to offer you a discount code for Katy’s beautiful hand dyed yarns! If you use coupon code NOVA at checkout you’ll receive 10% off of your yarn purchase! The yarns HERE will be perfect for the Nova Shrug!

Now to the pattern! I knew right away I wanted to make a little shrug with this yarn! It would make the perfect accent accessory for many of my favorite outfits! The Nova Shrug is super easy to make and assemble and can easily be adjusted to fit any size. Enjoy!

Assembling the Shrug

Lay your rectangle down vertically, with the wrong side facing you. Fold the top over the bottom.  Using a long piece of yarn and your tapestry needle, sew each side together 12-15 stitches, from the bottom up. Do the same on the other side. This creates your armholes. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
