How long does it take to crochet it?

The time it takes to crochet varies depending on your skills and how quickly you crochet. But that’s not a helpful answer, is it?

Well, I have developed a spinning calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

This will help you calculate exactly how much time you will spend designing a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you are going to use in the project whether in meters, yards, or skeins. Then crochet your test square and timing it.

Crochet Pattern Notes

  • This crochet pattern is written in American terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are not prohibited.
  • Note that the measurements are given as accurate as possible. But the tension and technique of crochet may give variations in the result, changing from person to person.
  • Read the pattern instructions carefully before you start to make sure you understand everything. It may save you hours!
  • Make a measuring stand that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is provided for. If your swatch matches the scale, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you may need to change the hook. Go up in the crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller and go down in the crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check the yarn info if you want to find a replacement or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).
  • This pattern is written for one size, but size adjustments are suggested under the “Size & Measurements” heading.
  • At the end of each row, the number of stitches is given in parentheses.

Size Adjustments

  • This crochet hat pattern can be made for basically any size. Start by measuring the strings against your head or the recipients’ head and quantify the strings accordingly.
  • Work on as many rows as you want at the desired size. This is where you can make a more or less slouchy beanie.
  • You can also choose to use a different mm hook size or thread thickness. If so, start by measuring head circumference against the strands before you begin.
