The Shell Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern brings a great design to the classic beanie style, and this easy crochet hat is a great way to give your wardrobe some crochet magic. The crochet flower adds just the right amount of fresh spring style, too. The shell stitch works perfectly with the layered look of a tightly woven cap, and it's a great way to add some pop to your crochet design. The color possibilities of yarn also make this a great way to add in some fun to a bland outfit, particularly with such a vivid green. We all have those bad hair days where we just need to throw on a cap and go, and with this easy crochet beanie, you can still look good doing it!

This hat looks so fun and easy to make. Looking at the picture, I feel like I may need to add a row or two, depending on the fit. I do not like how most hats I have made previously do not fit comfortably past my ears. The main reason I wear a hat is to keep my ears warm, so of course I want a hat that is going to cover them completely and not ride up.

That is definitely a GREEN hat. Would be perfect for St. Patricks Day. Maybe to wear for a pub or beer crawl? Though it can be made any color you want. All that is required is worsted weight yarn of any kind, and a crochet hook size H. The stitches used a simple and basic so this is perfect for a beginner also.

Is there a video of this? It will be easier to follow thru video.

Hi platonrosa, This is not one of our patterns so we cannot make a video of it. You can ask the blogger who created the design through her site, though! Julia, AFC editor

This pretty little hat is worked from the crown down, so the shells appear more as fans than usual for a bottom up hat. The designer has provided clear instructions and indicates the stitch count at the end of each row. The flower pattern is included as well, and everything available as a free .pdf download. The designer is a very talented watercolor artist, too!

Thank you so much for sharing your patterns with us. I just started making hats for cancer patients so theses are a great help. Thanks again, Martha
