Funky Crochet Poodle Hat
Funky Crochet Poodle Hat

Treat your kids to a unique crochet hat that's easy to make and they're sure to love. This crochet poodle hat pattern is worked up in pink yarn and looks just like a poodle's hair, with a big, fluffy top and even dangling ears. This funky crochet hat is a great gift that will keep your little one's ears and head warm in the winter chill, but can also be incorporated into next year's Halloween costume! Worked in worsted weight yarn with easy stitches, you'll be able to stitch this up in no time. 

Notes:
•Starting chain is not included in the stitch count
•The first stitch of each round is made in the same stitch as the starting chain
•Rounds are joined in the top of the first stitch, not the starting chain

Hat Pattern

  1. Poodle Ears (make 2)
    To get a rounded look to the ear, slightly decrease the loop length when working Rounds 6 through 8. 

    Round 1: Ch 2, make 6 sc in the 2nd chain from hook, join in first sc (6)
    Round 2: Ch 1, make 2 LP ST in each st around, join in first LP ST (12)
    Round 3: Ch 1, *make 2 LP ST in first st, LP ST in next st* repeat around, join (18)
    Round 4: Ch 1, *make 2 LP ST in first st, LP ST in next 2 sts* repeat around, join (24)
    Round 5 to 6: Ch 1, LP ST in each st around, join (24)
    Round 7: Ch 1, *LP ST in first 2 sts, LP ST dec* repeat around, join (18)
    Round 8: Ch 1, LP ST in each st around, join (18)
    *Turn your work so the remaining Rounds of SC are right-side out*
    Round 9: Ch 1, sc in each st around, join (18)
    Round 10: Ch 1, *sc in first 2 sts, sc dec* repeat around, join (14)
    Round 11 - 14: Ch 1, sc in each st around, join (14)
    Round 15: Ch 1, sc in each st around, join and fasten off (14)

  2. Child  •  Head Circumference = 18" - 20"  •  Hat Circumference = 17.5"  •  Hat Height = 7" - 7.5"

    Round 1: Ch 2, make 7 sc in the 2nd chain from hook, join in first sc (7)
    Round 2: Ch 1, make 2 LP ST in each st around, join in first LP ST (14)
    Round 3: Ch 1, *make 2 sc in first st, sc in next st* repeat around, join (21)            
    Round 4: Ch 1, *make 2 LP ST in first st, LP ST in next 2 sts* repeat around, join (28)
    Round 5: Ch 1, *make 2 sc in first st, sc in next 3 sts* repeat around, join (35)
    Round 6: Ch 1, *make 2 LP ST in first st, LP ST in next 4 sts* repeat between * around, join (42)
    Round 7: Ch 1, *make 2 sc in first st, sc in next 5 sts* repeat around, join (49)
    Round 8: Ch 1, LP ST in first st, *make 2 LP ST in next st, LP ST in next 15 sts* repeat between * around, join (52)
    Round 9: Ch 1, LP ST in each st around, join (52)
    For Toddler size: Repeat Round 9 until hat measures 7" in length (I stopped at Round 20), do not fasten off, continue with final round below to attach the ears. 
    For Child size: Repeat Round 9 until hat measures 7.5" in length (Round 21 or so), do not fasten off, continue with final round below to attach the ears. 
    Final Round: Loosely sl st in first 9 sts, place the flattened end of one ear along the outside of the hat and sl st through all 3 layers 7 times, sl st in the next 20 sts, place the other ear along the hat and sl st 7 times, sl st in next 9 sts, join in first st and fasten off. If you find that slip stitching the ears onto the hat restricts the stretchiness too much, you can sew them on instead. Weave in all ends.


    Adult  •  Head Circumference = 21" - 23"  •  Hat Circumference = 20.5"  •  Hat Height = 8"

    Round 1: Ch 2, make 7 sc in the 2nd chain from hook, join in first sc (7)

    Round 9: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, *make 2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts* repeat around, join (62)
    Round 10: Ch 1, LP ST in each st around, join (62)
    Round 11: Repeat Round 10 until the hat measures approximately 8" in height.
    Final Round: Loosely sl st in first 11 sts, place the flattened end of one ear along the outside of the hat and sl st through all 3 layers 7 times, sl st in the next 26 sts, place the other ear along the hat and sl st 7 times, sl st in next 11 sts, join in first st and fasten off. If you find that slip stitching the ears onto the hat restricts the stretchiness too much, you can sew them on instead. Weave in all ends.
