The band is made with foundation single crochet, which provides a perfect fit that's comfortable for everyone. For a personalized look, add a crochet applique of your choice to this crochet hat. Worsted weight yarn is used to work up this free pattern.

Intermediate

Crochet HookI/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

MATERIALS:

  • Worsted Weight Yarn
    • Model shown in Caron Simply Soft
  • Crochet Hook: I/5.5 mm
  • Yarn Needle

SIZE:
Instructions are written in Toddler/Child size with Teen/Adult in parenthesis: Toddler/Child (Teen/Adult).

The Toddler hat is shorter than the Child size so pay close attention when it comes to the end of the hat so that you stop at the appropriate length.

Finished lengths are as follows: Toddler – 8” Child – 9” Teen/Adult – 10”

If you would like your hat to be longer, continue to work in pattern to desired length and then move on to assembly.

GAUGE:
4 sc x 4 rows = 1" square

NOTES:
Ch 3 counts as a dc.

Double treble crochets are hard to work and keep tight. To minimize gaps at the top of your stitches keep your YO’s close to each other as you work the st. The more they stretch out the bigger of a gap you will have at the top.
When choosing a yarn, I do recommend using a smoother yarn with a nice drape like Caron Simply Soft. A regular WW like Red Heart Super Saver is a little too stiff to get a good slouch in the back of the hat.

Special Stitches:
Cable – When instructed to create a cable stitch follow these directions:
Skip 4 st, fpdtr around next 2 st, dc in third and fourth skipped stitch (behind the two fpdtr’s just created), fpdtr around the first and second skipped stitch in front of all 4 stitches just created.
{There will be photos when you get to the first cable in the pattern.}

I can't figure out where to insert the hook in Round 7. I don't understand where there are photos for the previous rounds, but not for this one. It's much more confusing trying to figure out where to insert the hook. I guess I have to wait to finish the hat until I receive an answer because I have no idea. Thanks.

This is such a pretty beanie hat but, I must admit that it looks a little advanced to me. I have been crocheting for many years so I am hoping that once I actually get into the making process that it just looks harder than what it actually is to make.

I like the look of this beanie pattern but I've never done a cable pattern on any crochet project so I find this a little intimidating! Has anyone ever attempted this pattern before?!

I love the pattern, but it doesn't look good on my head. I will be giving it to a friend that likes cables.

I love this hat, but I can't seem to get into the blog to see the pattern instructions. Please, someone tell me what to do. I created an account butthat doesn't get me to the blog. Thanks

Did you try printing the pattern shown on All Free Crochet rather than just saving it?
