Easy Peasy Woman’s Winter Hat {Pattern}


IMGP3930
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.

Materials:
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
Abbreviations:
sl: Slip Stitch
sc: Single Crochet
dc: Double Crochet
ch: Chain
st: Stitch
sts: Stitches
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
Hat:
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!


*** Update*** 
This pattern can now be downloaded as a PDF file! You can download it here on Ravelry

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.

Very nice. Once I can start crocheting again, I'll have to try it out. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for posting the pattern! I will be trying it out tomorrow!

PS as a WI gal, I have to say good job on the Packers version. :-)

Love the hats and you look adorable in the picture, but the Green Bay hat is huge. I am a Packer fan by marriage, Go Pack!

Hello!

Thank you for posting the pattern! I'm sure for seasoned crochetters they probably don't need a pattern for a hat, but for a new kid like me, it's awesome!!!!
Quick question though... I want to use the pattern and make the greenbay packers hat as you made for a friend of mine, but not sure how big his head is.... What sized head would it fit? I know his head is smaller than my boyfriends and was planning on basing it off that. Also, using different colors is a new challenge for me. Did you just start with all 3 colors and not use until you needed it? Or did you stop and start a new color as needed?
Sorry if these are silly questions!! Thank you again!!!

What a great patterm. Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!

bev said...

I love your hat! So cute! I'm confused by Round 2....I don't understand the "1 dc in same stitch as ch3 from previous row". There was not a ch3 in the previous row. What am I missing here?

Thanks so much!

Samantha said...

I just am in love with this pattern. I am making one of my friend and I tried to do one more row of increasing and it just seems like its way to big. any suggestions?
Thank you!

Erica said...

Thank you so very much for this pattern! I am going to Michael's today to get some bulky yarn, then I'll come home and whip up one for me, and some for charity, as well. Thank you!!!

Unknown said...

I stumbled across your blog a few days ago and love all of your patterns and postings. Do you know if the flower pattern is for sale on Etsy or somewhere else? I would be happy to purchase it for some of my Christmas gifts this year.

MarathonJourney said...

I'm doing something wrong, can someone help me please? I've completed rounds 1 and 2. I chain three to go into round 3, but I have this gaping whole. I got to round 5 but took everything out (going back to round 2) to see what I did wrong. Have I done something wrong or should there be a whole?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this would be an awesome birthday gift for my friend.

Blessing!
Rochelle

I wish this were in a toddler size! any suggestions on how to scale it down?

Helen said...

What a cute hat. I've been looking for a pattern to use up left over yarn and I think this will be perfect. I like adding the flower. I'm making chemo caps for a local support group and this will be a nice addition. Thanks so much for sharing

Helen said...

Thank you so much for this pattern. I only learnt to crochet last weekend, and today I was able to make this hat.

Many thanks indeed. x

Thanks for such a great and simple hat pattern. First one completed in an evening and there will be many more to come, I'm sure.
Thanks again.

This is a great article. I love beanie hats but there are so many other Womens hats that look really nice. Obviously there are many different styles. There are also different styles for different seasons. For example, the beanie hats displayed in this article are usually meant to be worn in the winter. But fashion has come so far that, people every wearing them during the summer. Like I said before, there are many different types of hats women can wearing with outfits. For example, a beret, boonie hat, bucket hat, capuchon, cloche hat, fedora, floppy and cowboy hat. Those are just a few from a long list of hats available to buy these days. All you need to do is just be creative with these hats and find a way to incorporate them with different outfits.
