Keep your head warm and your body stealthy in this Timber Wolf Slouch Hat that has little wolf ears. The Timber or Gray Wolf is an endangered species, but such a beautiful breed, and you can commemorate their wildness by working up this crochet hat. Whether you're a lone wolf or part of a pack, you'll feel like a creature of the forest while wearing the hat. Made with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, you won't be disappointed by the self striping ombre effect of the yarn and the warmth of the bulky weight.


Crochet HookK/10.5 or 6.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(5) Bulky/Chunky (12-15 stitches for 4 inches)

Materials List

  • Lion Brand Scarfie - Cream/Black (#826-201)
  • Size K Hook
  • Sharp Yarn Needle


  1. Begin with a Ch 30.

  2. Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc 27. Turn. (28 sts)

  3. Rows 2-32.  Work in BLO:

  4. Row 33: Ch 2. Hdc in same st. Hdc 27. Turn (28 sts) 
    (You can work more or less rows to suit your needs)

  5. Turn your piece 90 degrees and sc down the long side. Try to make them as even as possible.

  6. You should have a long, ribbed rectangle. Fold it in half, with the ribs running up and down. Sl st the two ends together, forming a short tube. Tie off.

  7. With your side seam facing out, grab a length of yarn, and thread it through your needle. Then, go in and out through every other sc sts at the top of your tube, making long stitches. When you reach where you started, pull the string tight. This will cinch up the top of the hat, closing it. Tie a very tight and sturdy knot. Turn your hat right side out. The knot and seam will be on the inside.

Ears (Make 2)

(use a gradient piece of yarn that matches the top of your hat best. Same colors look a bit better than black on white, or white on black).

  1. Start with Ch 6.

  2. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 4. Turn. (5 sts)

  3. Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc 4. Turn. (5 sts)

  4. Ch 1. Sc2tog. Sc. Sc2tog. Turn (3 sts)

  5. Ch 1. Sc 3. Turn. (3 sts)

  6. Ch 1. Sc3tog. Turn. (1 st)

  7. Ch 1. Sc. (1 st). Tie off.

  8. Attach the ears on the top of the hat with a length of yarn and a yarn needle. For best results, try the hat on, and position the ears in a pleasing manner with pins. Sew along the bottom of the ears, going up from the inside of the hat. To keep them from flapping, sew up 1 or 2 rows more on the ears. This tacks them on a bit more securely. They look cute poking up a little, but are a bit cumbersome if they are attached only at the bottom.

  9. Weave in your ends. Attach a pom-pom if you like to, but it looks cute without it as well.

The Gauge seems too small. 12-15 stitches = 4 inches. This is an adult hat?

I like the look of this hat. It has a very modern look and very similar to the hats I see in some of the winter clothing and accessory magazines. I would love to see this hat topped with one of the faux fur pompoms. I bet that would look awesome. My teenagers would love to have one.

This is a darling little slouch hat. I would have made the ears in a different color just to make them pop out more or perhaps it is the lighting in the picture. At any rate, this little timber wolf hat is adorable.

This hat was made with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. Scarfie is a soft and lofty wool blend yarn with enough yardage to knit or crochet a full length scarf. While working with Scarfie, youll see a unique self-striping ombr effect emerge, with gradual shading from one color to the next.

This crochet timber wolf slouch hat is spot on. Right down to the color of the yarn selected, this is adorable. I love the addition of the ears and the pom-pom just pushes it over the top. I need more than one of these.

This Timber Wolf Slouch Hat is perfect for the coming fall and winter months. It is made in a color appropriate for the season but of course this accessory will also look great in earth or pastel colors. This is just the right size to protect your head and ears from the cold. The stitches used are very appropriate for the hat pattern. Cheers!

Ive never worked a hat sideways before, so this will be a first. There are several members of my family who a huge Game of Thrones fans, so Im going to make up several to match the wolves on the show. I may need to combine different colors of yarn for some of the matches, but I think Ive found most of the colors I need. Winter is Coming, and for some of us in the east, its already here!

I think this hat is so darn cute! In the picture it is hard to see the wolf ears, I will admit. I have an idea- make these hats for school mascot/ sports teams. You can change the color scheme easily and I think it would not change the look of the hat. It's a different idea. It's not so cutesy, but more grown-up.

What do you mean by "-32."? I get the back-loop only part but I am confused by the minus in front of the 32. Thank you!

I am pretty sure that it means to work rows 2-32 the same way... Sorry I just saw your question. Hope it helps!

This pattern looks lovely, but I don't understand the abbreviations. Maybe we use different ones in the UK! Can anyone help?

I believe Hdc is double crochet (dc) in UK terms.

Here is a chart for converting USA to uk crochet terms...
