Crochet Panama

For each doll you can associate various items of clothing and accessories. I propose to make, or rather knit a panama hat with your own hands and crochet.

to her in a set of the same yarn, you can knit another dress and booties. You can also knit for your child, it’s very popular to knit booties - marshmallows, but you can read about it in this article //

To knit this product we need:

- thin cotton yarn;

- hook.

Abbreviations in the text:

PP - lifting loops;

CCH - double crochet;

VP - air loops.

The bottom of the panama has a round shape with a pattern. To start knitting the base, we knit 5 loops and lock it into a ring. At the beginning of each row, it is necessary to knit 3 lifting loops (PP). In the first row, a combination of 3 PP + 13 CCH is used.

In the next (2 row) in the first three loops, 2 CCHs should be connected. Now skip 1 loop of the first row and repeat the combination to the end of the row.

From the next row, we begin to form reports. 3 row: knit three loops using a combination of 2CCH, 1 CCH, 2 CCH. We skip the bottom loop, knit 1 VP above it, continue to the end of the row. We got 6 reports that will be at the heart of the pattern.

4 and 5 rows: evenly add 2 loops in each report. The reports are interconnected by 1 VP. In the 4th row in each report there should be 7 loops, and in the fifth row - 9 loops. Now we will make the reduction so that the report looks like a leaflet. 6 row: we knit the central 7 stitches, then 1 VP, 1 SS in 1 fifth-row VP, 1 VP, etc.

7th row: we knit 5 CCHs in the middle of the report, we knit 1 CCHs in the 6-row air stitches, 1 CCH between them. We continue knitting in the same way until there is 1 CCH in the report - this is another 8 and 9 rows. We knit the next 2 rows (10 and 11) using (1 CCH + 1 VP).

The main part of the cap is ready.

Now connect the fields. We will use CCH for them: in the first arch of 1 VP 11 rows we knit 4 CCH, in each 2nd and 3rd - 3 CCH. In the final row, we knit CCH without changes. Panama is ready.

It looks like a hat on a toy baby and complete with booties and a dress.
