Hi, I'm Renaissance Austin, Knitwear and Crochet Designer and today, I'm going to show you how to put a simple edging on a hat. Basically, you can start with any hat pattern and create any hat you like. This is 100 percent acrylic yarn worsted weight and I'm going to use a turquoise acrylic yarn which is also worsted weight to put our edging on. These are our crochet hooks and this is the base tool that is use for any crochet project. For this project, I'm going to use size J crochet hook. So, I'm going to use a different color for the edging so that you guys can see the difference. This is another way to add spice and spark to your project so that it's not all one color. I'm going to change color by simply inserting my hook at the back of my hat, grabbing my yarn and pulling up a loop. I'm going to take both of these together, yarn over and create a chain. Now, I'm just going to drop my thread and later when we're done, I'm going to tie that end. One of my favorite edgings that I love is a backwards or reverse single crochet stitch. You're going to go inverse motion and you're going to insert the hook into your loop. You're going to grab your yarn and come back through. You have one, two loops on your hook. You're going to yarn over and bring through both loops. Notice that I'm inserting my hook in the chain space at where I begin my hat. That is your base chain. So, we're just going to work backwards and go to our next stitch and remember, that's two. And you're going to continue in this pattern all the way around the hat. I'm just about done with my edging; I'm going to do a reverse single crochet and I'm going to do one more and then I'm going to slip stitch. You can slip stitch in the very first space that you created and the slip stitch is just simply coming through. You're going to chain and pull and then we're going to cut. I'm Renaissance Austin and thank you for watching how to crochet an edging on a hat.
