This is a very simple hat crochet pattern that I have used over and over again. It has been adapted from the pattern called Crochet Head Hugger by Christine Marie Way Tyler & John Wesley Tyler for use with our bulky Snuggle Yarn by The Alpaca Yarn Company.
For this hat, I used the colorway, A Group of Greens.
Here’s the pattern:
US Size J
1 Skein of Snuggle Hand-Dyed
1 Skein of Snuggle Solids
Body of hat requires about 90 yards, brim takes about 15 yards.
This hat measures 21″ around at the widest point and is 8″ from the top to the bottom of the turned up brim.
CH 2 always counts as 1 DC.
CH 4 or 5 (which ever you usually like to use to make a ring). SL ST in first ST to form a ring.
Round 1 – CH 2, 11 DC in ring. SL ST in top of CH 2. (12 DC)
Round 2 – CH 2, DC in the same ST. 2 DC in each ST around. SL ST in top of CH 2. (24 DC)
Round 3 – CH 2, *2 DC in next ST, DC in next ST*; Repeat around. SL ST in top of CH 2. (36 DC)
Round 4 – CH 2, DC in next ST. *2 DC in next ST, DC in next 2 ST*; Repeat around. SL ST in top of CH 2. (48 DC)
Round 5 – *CH 2, skip 1 DC, SC in next DC*; Repeat around. SL ST in top of CH 2.
Round 6 – SL ST into CH, CH 2, DC in same CH 2 space, *2 DC in each CH 2 space around*. SL ST in top of CH 2.
Round 7 – CH 2, skip the first 2 DC, SC in space between 2ND & 3RD DC, *CH 2, skip 2 DC, SC in space between DC’S of previous round*;
Repeat around. SL ST in top of CH 2.
Rounds 8 thru 13 – Repeat rounds 5 & 6 until cap is the length that you want, ending with either round. Finish off here or add brim.
Here is the same hat using A Plethora of Pinks.
