How to Crochet a Hat - by

When I received my Subscription updates in the mail today from youtube I was excited to see the 'How to crochet a hat' post by ThreadBanger. This is really a very simple, straight forward way to crochet a hat. Enjoy!

P.S. I like the way she does the counting of the rows.

Beginners Crochet Hat

A Very Simple Beginner Crochet Hat Using Single Crochet Stitch

This weekend I'm preparing to teach a beginning crochet class at the local craft shop so decided to look for a project that they could make with the single crochet stitch. I found the perfect pattern. It is a Lion Brand pattern called First Fall Crochet Hat and I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease Yarn in Sand.

You can download the pattern on the site it is VannasChoice pattern 90380AD. Suggested yarn for the pattern is Vanna's Choice with a hook size J-10 6mm.

This hat is made in a rectangle and then cinched up at the top and the seam sewn down the side.

The pattern gives a hat circumference of 18 inches and although the yarn does stretch it is too small for my 23" head. My 11 year old was able to wear it though and his head is 21".

To make the hat larger add more chains. Instead of 55 as the pattern gives, chain what you think will fit your head. You might need to give it a bit of trial and error to get it perfect.

If you want this to be a slouchy hat just add more length. The patterns stops at 9" so keep going until 12" or more and you'll get the slouchy look.

Another option you can do with this hat is crochet in the back loops only to give it a ribbed look.

  • Crochet Rasta Hat, Free Crochet Pattern
    Free crochet pattern for a rasta hat using patons canadiana yarn.
  • Knots and Loops: Easy Slouchy Hat Crochet Pattern
    You can make this hat "slouchier by increasing the number of rows you work even. To make smaller (child) size, work up to row 6 (or 7), then work even 2 rounds. Then work rows 12 (or 13).
  • Rasta Hat by Chez Crochet
    A Chez Crochet visitor asked if I knew of a pattern for the popular Rasta Hats. Well in my searches (and in hers) we couldn't find one, so I created this simple pattern.
  • Slave to the Hook: Tam It All to Heck!
    Notes- In rounds 9, 11, and 13, treat each ch in the ch2 as a stitch (work a st in them just as you would the st next to them). Also, no blocking should be necessary to get it to look right... it's a slouchy tam thing, after all. :D

I just love your collection of crochet hat patterns here, This is bookmarked and I know I will return again and have some great finds on here :)

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 22, 2013:

@asiliveandbreathe: Most definitely. :)

asiliveandbreathe on January 22, 2013:

A hat is an essential item in the current chilly weather!

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 05, 2013:

@sheilamarie78: Crochet hats really are a great project to reignite your love for crochet. They are quick too.

Sheilamarie from British Columbia on January 04, 2013:

I should start crocheting again. Hats are a good useful project to get me going. Thanks for the ideas!

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 04, 2013:

@knitstricken: Aww thanks. blushing. I do some knitting but crochet has definitely hooked me.

knitstricken on January 04, 2013:

My first language is knitting, but when it comes to hats, I'm all about the hook! There's just something about a crocheted skullcap or beanie or chullo or tam... and my how nicely you've pulled it all together in this lens! Thank you!

Sara Duggan (author) from California on November 17, 2012:

@RGrieco: Once you know how to crochet in the round, hats are quick and easy to make.

RGrieco on November 17, 2012:

I used to do crotchet but not done any for years, I must admit never actually tried making a hat, reading through your great lens has inspired me to have a go at making a hat - Thanks.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on November 04, 2012:

@Torrs13: Hats are everywhere. Love all the cute characters crafters are coming up with too.

Torrs13 on November 03, 2012:

These hats are so cute!! I see kids at work wearing hats like these all the time. I might have to sit down eventually and learn how to make one!

akunsquidoku on November 01, 2012:

great lens...

nice jobs..:)

Sara Duggan (author) from California on November 01, 2012:

@anonymous: UK/US terms can get confusing. I know it confuses me when I try UK patterns. Don't you wish there was just one set of terms?

anonymous on October 31, 2012:

You are tempting me into trying crochet again. Haven't done it for over 10 years now. One big problem I have is that I get confused between the UK and US systems.

MatijaB LM on September 17, 2012:

These hats are really amazing and looks very stylish.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on August 19, 2012:

@mouse1996 lm: Thank you, Love your hats too.

mouse1996 lm on August 19, 2012:

I love these hats. I would love to make one some day.

Melissa Miotke from Arizona on July 12, 2012:

sheezie77 on June 09, 2012:

Beautiful lens, great selection of hhats, well done!

MerandaJade on May 25, 2012:

So many different hats! I had no idea there were so many designs... you really can do anything with yarn, can't you? Great lens!

anonymous on May 21, 2012:

Very nice Lens. I love crocheting. It's my favorite craft.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on May 13, 2012:

@AshleySears LM: Thank you. That came from Teresa on Youtube's blog. Thanks for sharing your blog - just pinned it so that I can return and read all the other goodies you have.

AshleySears LM on April 30, 2012:

Thanks so much for listing the hat sizes. I always use live models haha. Check out my crochet hat I made for my daughter on my site

aquarian_insight on April 05, 2012:

I have to say that as a rule, I prefer knitting to crochet, but crochet hats are so beautiful that I do make them from time to time. Thank you for the patterns here.

themeanviolets on April 03, 2012:

I LOVE CROCHET HATS... I have many of them but none made by me :-( But maybe I will! Thanks for sharing!

TTMall on March 22, 2012:

Very informative lens. Well done!

anonymous on March 18, 2012:

So wonderful lens with beautiful crotchet hats collection... dear lady :) Happy St.Patrick's Day :D

Fiona from South Africa on March 17, 2012:

Love the mustache/ beard hat. Too cool.

Nancy Carol Brown Hardin from Las Vegas, NV on March 16, 2012:

Love the crochet hats. I've done some with much trial and error and no pattern, but these are really cool. Thanks so much for sharing.

Erin Hardison from Memphis, TN on March 16, 2012:

Love the selection of adorable baby hats and all the creative hats for kids and adults too. May just have to try my hand at crocheting.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@Close2Art LM: thanks for the blessing

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@teristazko: Crochet is not that difficult to learn. I'm sure you'll be able to add that to your crafty arsenal. :)

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@LaraineRoses: #IntNaCroMo Crochet week is my favorite time - lots of great activities centered around my favorite craft.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@PuttinUpWithSuzy: Another crocheter on Squidoo - can't have too many.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@lunagaze: The cow is cute. I made a little baby cow hat in sample yarn - pink, grey, and purple.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 16, 2012:

@anonymous: Thanks. I enjoy making them because they are so quick to make. Crochet hats are my favorite.

anonymous on March 16, 2012:

Lovely crotchet hats! I loved them all. I tend to find them both warm and cute. Great job!

lunagaze on March 16, 2012:

cool lens, love the hats especially the one of a cow

PuttinUpWithSuzy on March 16, 2012:

I love to crochet! I learned when I was a kid. I enjoy making hats also. Thanks for the info.

Laraine Sims from Lake Country, B.C. on March 16, 2012:

Congratulations! This is crochet week and I am sending this in as the answer to my Quest. I hope that you will get extra points and also get to be a star on the front page.

I like the fact that you have added your own patterns and not just given us a list. I have enjoyed looking at all the different hats available to make and I will be trying some of these patterns for next winter. I am bookmarking this lens for then. Angel blessings for one very fine lens!

teristazko on March 16, 2012:

Precious hats. I am crafty, but I haven't mastered the crocheting thing yet. Your page gives me hope though. You are extremely talented! Great lens.

Close2Art LM on March 13, 2012:

very cool crochet page, Blessed

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@PoeticChristian: You're like my husband. His head size is similar to our 11 yo. If they have your head circumference they might have a better time making a hat that fits you. Also, maybe adding elastic to the last row will help keep the hat on your head.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@anonymous: I like the knitted hats as well. I think the knitted versions do have the stems - a crochet designer might have added them already - I'll have to search them out.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@junecampbell: Thanks for passing this on, I'm truly grateful.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@LittleLindaPinda: Yes, I love crocheting for charity - it was one of my first projects - blankets for newborns. I do more hats these days because they are quick and I can usually make 2 - 3 from a skein of yarn.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@CanterPR: Chemo hats are definitely needed. Whenever I have extra hats I take them downtown to the Chemo center. We have a new local one too so I might have to double up on my crocheting.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@Michey LM: Thanks for stopping by and letting me know your favorite designs. So many hats to choose from - which shall I make first? Oh, the stress of being a crochet addict.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@curious0927: Thank you. I was so happy to see that little lovely baby's smiling face on the front page.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@ReviewsfromSandy: Thanks Sandy nice to have you in my neighborhood.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@chrisssy: My mom tried teaching me too but as she was left handed I never caught on either. It wasn't until 1999 that I learned how to crochet.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@Kysaan LM: Thanks. There are many great crochet designers out there.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@fullofshoes: Glad it was useful. It started out as a directory for patterns I wanted to make and now it is a page that other crocheters refer to as well.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on March 10, 2012:

@bjslapidary: Glad it was useful for you.

PoeticChristian on March 06, 2012:

Great Ideas and great lens, I have the patience for some craft things that would drive others buts but this i just have a hard time. My sister would love this lens. Blessings. Besides, none of them can make a hat to fit me. I am an adult with a youth size head,lol.

anonymous on March 05, 2012:

My sister is having a baby so I'm really into looking at baby stuff right now, and I saw these knitted hats that were strawberries, and oranges, and grapes, so so cute, where the top of the hats were the stems, just an idea.

June Campbell from North Vancouver, BC, Canada on March 04, 2012:

Great patterns. I'm sending the link to my crocheting friend.

jeriza on March 04, 2012:

Nice lens. . .very creative hats!!!

Little Linda Pinda from Florida on March 04, 2012:

The hats are so cute. What a nice idea that CanterPR is making hats for chemotherapy patients.

Amy M-F from Northamptonshire, UK on February 29, 2012:

Brilliant lens, love it, off to give it a try.

CanterPR on February 29, 2012:

Thank you so much for sharing all of these great patterns. I was recently inspired by another lens I read and I am knitting and crocheting hats for chemotherapy patients at my local hospital. I will definitely try some of these.

Michey LM on February 28, 2012:

You are a great crochet designer, and I like how you choose the color, my favorites are Mustache Beard Hat, Slouchy Hat (actually I have one of this), and Crochet Child Cow Hat.

I learned to crochet long time ago, from my Grandma, didn't crochet for years, so I am wandering if I try ... will come back to me...

Great lens

curious0927 on February 27, 2012:

Great Lens! Congrats, you are on the Front Page! I love to crochet and have been looking for great hat patterns, looks like I found the best place! Tremendous work! Blessed!

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin on February 27, 2012:

These look good!

chrisssy on February 27, 2012:

Great lens. Really cute hats. My mom used to crochet blankets and scarves for everybody I loved it. She tried to teach me when I was a kid but I never caught on, as easy as it probably is

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 27, 2012:

@blessedmomto7: Yes, that cow hat is just too adorable. I made one and it's a pretty simple pattern. You just make a brim and fold it up and sew it to the hat. Not sure how her pattern works but the one I bought does this. Sew some eyes and nostrils and you have yourself a cow beanie.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 27, 2012:

@BusyMOM LM: Thanks for stopping by - hope you find some time to pick up some yarn and a hook.

Kysaan LM on February 27, 2012:

Cute hats.

fullofshoes on February 26, 2012:

This is fantastic. It's been a while since I crocheted something useful and this is my motivation! thanks... great lens. Bookmarked!

bjslapidary on February 26, 2012:

Thanks for all the great info. Nice hat patterns. Bookmarked.

BusyMOM LM on February 19, 2012:

WONDERFUL lens. I love to crochet when I have the time. Great ideas here. I bookmarked it!

Shannon from Florida on February 10, 2012:

Adorable ideas! Very nice! Blessed and liked.

Chazz from New York on February 10, 2012:

Very cute hats!

blessedmomto7 on February 10, 2012:

Love the cow hat! Now if I was just better at following a pattern.... Maybe someday! I also pinned this lens, it's fabulous!

MommyTo2 on February 10, 2012:

Love the hats!

MelonyVaughan on February 09, 2012:

These are so beautiful! I love crocheting. Thanks for a wonderful lens!

Kathryn Grace from San Francisco on February 09, 2012:

Love this page! We have a wee one on the way (grandbaby), and I'm looking for a newborn hat pattern. I especially like the one in your intro image! Also looking for the softest organic cotton baby yarn I can find, so will check out some of your sources. I find it difficult to find organic yarns, especially sold in larger skeins.

Clairissa from OREFIELD, PA on February 08, 2012:

So adorable and quite hipster.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 07, 2012:

@anonymous: Aww, thanks @Tipi. Thanks for the blessings and now I know how I got on the front page - super happy about that. Glad I changed the intro photo this month - it is definitely one that captures the heart. Be sure to check out her other patterns - Funny girl designs.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 07, 2012:

@Wednesday-Elf: Thanks. I think hats for your little amigurumi's count as crocheting hats. Stop on by my blog, leave a comment and I'll send you one of the ones I make. {seriously.}

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 07, 2012:

@Diana Wenzel: The patterns by designer Funny girl designs are the cutest hats for little ones. Her models are just as adorable too. You're right, it's never too late to learn to crochet.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 07, 2012:

@getmoreinfo: Fantastic. Didn't know until I started getting comments from all of you. Thanks for stopping by.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 07, 2012:

@nightbear lm: @nightbear. Yay, another lover of crochet. Thanks for stopping by and blessing this lens.

getmoreinfo on February 06, 2012:

Congrats on making Squidoo front page! I love your hat designs, very nice.

Renaissance Woman from Colorado on February 06, 2012:

Those baby beanies are adorable! Love the intro photo. Too sweet. You have a gift for sure. Wish I had learned to crochet from my grandmother. I guess it's never too late to begin. Thanks for all of the wonderful patterns.

Wednesday-Elf from Savannah, Georgia on February 06, 2012:

Hi Sara -- stopping back by this terrific lens again to congratulate you on being featured on the Front Page of Squidoo today! One of these days I'm actually going to try and crochet a hat, although I've made one or two for my crocheted stuffed animals before. :)

anonymous on February 06, 2012:

Returning with front page honors angel dust, I still got a chuckle out of that beard and mustache hat but it is the intro pic that wins a heart.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 01, 2012:

@jimmyworldstar: Love dreadlocks but my hair just isn't the type to keep them well. I do love to make the dread hats though - it is from those with dreadlocks that usually challenge me to use colors I normally wouldn't use.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 01, 2012:

@asiliveandbreathe: Glad to hear. Hope you're inspired to crochet a hat today.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on February 01, 2012:

@bjslapidary: Thanks for dropping by - there are so many crochet hats out there - way too many to list here but I'm trying.

jimmyworldstar on February 01, 2012:

I've seen a lot of Rastafarians wear giant crochet hats to keep their dreadlocks from falling out.

asiliveandbreathe on February 01, 2012:

Great ideas and inspirations!

bjslapidary on January 27, 2012:

Neat lens. So many hats. Great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 21, 2012:

@nelsonkana: Thanks for stopping by - appreciate it. A tour of top lenses would be great - I should do that some day.

nelsonkana on January 21, 2012:

Nice lens here. Am taking a tour of top lenses. This is one of them. I like it.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 19, 2012:

@anonymous: Thank you - you can learn to crochet online via video or pictorial tutorials.

Sara Duggan (author) from California on January 19, 2012:

@kathysart: I'm sure your husband would love a hat crocheted by you. Thanks for the angel blessings.

anonymous on January 19, 2012:

Very beautiful hats. I am going to have to learn how to crochet.

kathysart on January 19, 2012:

You make me want to crochet again. I have not done it for years. I love the idea of just making a hat and maybe for my cutie pie husband. Thanks!! Angel blessed.
