This hat is really easy! I am happy to share the pattern with you guys. It’s a perfect time of year to start making some warmer hats. I also think it’s great to have a pattern for the ladies since the internet seems to be taken over by children’s hat patterns.
Bulky #5 yarn in any fiber you choose. (I used Loops & Threads Charisma from Michael’s and LOVED it)
6.5 - 7 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain correct gauge.
Yarn or Tapestry Needle
sl: Slip Stitch
sc: Single Crochet
dc: Double Crochet
Gauge: 9 sts x 6.5 rows = 10 x 10 cm
Note: At the beginning of each round, you will chain 3. This counts as your first double crochet. At the end of each round, slip stitch in chain 3 to join
To begin, Ch 5 and join into a ring with a sl st in first ch. You can also do a magic ring here, which I did.
Round 1: 12 dc in ring.
Round 2: Ch3, 1dc in same stitch as ch3 from previous row, 2 dc in each st around. Sl to join (24 dc.)
Round 3: Ch3, 2dc in next st, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in the next st*, repeat *-*. Sl to join (36 dc.)
Round 4: Ch3, 1 dc in next st, 2dc in next. *1 dc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st*, repeat *-*. Sl to join (48 dc.)
*After round 4, the piece measures approx. 14 cm in diameter. This is a great place to make sure you’re on track for sizing
Rows 5-11 dc in each st around, sl to join. (48 dc.)
At this point you may want to try it on to see if you are ok with the height. If you want it longer just add another round.
Row 12: Ch1, sc in each st around. Sl in chain1 space to join. (48 sc.)
Fasten off and weave in ends. If you want a invisible, clean and nice looking way to finish off, click here! I started doing this and it makes a huge difference.
When you’re done with the hat you can leave it like it is or add your favorite flower
I love my hat. I get excited to leave the house just so I can wear it!
This pattern can now be downloaded as a PDF file! You can download it here on Ravelry
I never have anyone around to take a picture of me when there is good lighting so I did my own with the ole, cell- phone- in- the- bathroom- mirror trick. Oh and the thumbs up… well I’m just a big nerd. So I have no explanation besides thatI wish I could share the pattern for the flower I made (which I use on a lot of my hats) but it is not my pattern. There are a lot of great free flower patterns out there so I’m sure you can find a good one. What also might look cute is a couple cool buttons.
This hat can also be made for a man. I made one with Green Bay Packers colors for my hubby and it looks really nice! You can try to use the same pattern if the man you’re making it for has a smaller head. I added one more row of increasing so that it would work for my husband.
I hope you all like the pattern! Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
