Crochet hat – how to!

Happy friday everyone! 🙂

This morning, I crocheted this cutie:


It has a cute bow:


And I thought, I should share how I made it! It’s pretty easy… (If you have any questions, please let me know!)

So here we go:

Begin with 8 sc (single crochet)

1 sc in 8. stitch from hook (which basically means to do one single crochet through the first sc you made!!!)

2 sc in each stitch around until you reach the marked end (I always use a needle to mark the end of my rows)

*3 sc, 2sc in next sc* (*= repeat until end of the row)

*1 sc in each sc*

*2 sc in each sc*

*4 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around*

*5 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around*

*6 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around*

*7 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around*

*8 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*9 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*10 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*11 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around*

*12 sc, 2 sc in next sc*

*1 sc in each sc around* (repeat twice)

*3 sc, skip next sc, 1 sc*

*3 sc, skip next 2 sc, 1 sc*

*1 sc in each sc around* (do this until you think, it’s enough ^^)


I’ve never done a crochet pattern before, so I don’t know if you can completely understand what I mean 😉 If not, just leave a comment. And if you can and did, would be nice to see your work 😀

Oh, and for the bow, I made a row of single  crochets until i thought, it would be the perfect size and then crocheted 4 rows. When finished, I just tied the middle with blue wool and sewed it to the hat.

I told you, it’s easy.

  1. Love that hat! Just want to ask if it is worked in continuous rounds or do you join at the end of each row and then do next row?

  2. hi there!
    🙂 maybe your tension is too tight or you are using a hook too small? i am always using quite huge hooks and thick yarn. maybe that will help? ❤

  3. hi i love the pattern and followed it very easily the only thing is mine is very small only big enough to fit a 1yr old child. what am i doing wrong. is my tension to tight?

  4. I think your right…….I think that I ended up with too many sc in each row because I didn’t use a stitch marker. Thanks so much, I appreciate it!!!!!!!!

  5. maybe that’s because i „stretched! my hat? i think it was a bit too „small“ for my head so i had to stretch it and that’s why it looks a bit like holes…. maybe try using less sc’s?

  6. If I sc in each sc at the end part, I do not get that open, hole like look that you have, it looks like a tight band. What am I doing wrong?

  7. The link to my blog is broken on my name…
    If the one attatched to this comment is broken as well, my blog is

  8. I love this hat so, so much! I have made like six of them. 🙂 So thanks for the pattern! My friends are sure to enjoy getting hats like this for Christmas 🙂

  9. Die Mütze ist echt schön geworden, kannst du die Anleitung auch auf deutsch zugänglich machen? Ich habe gerade erst mit dem häkeln angefangen und das übersteigt dann schon meine Kompetenz. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

  10. Hi, I know that this is an old post,but just wanted to say that the hat came out very cute. Thank you for posting this!

  11. I know this is an old post, but I wanted to ask about the decreasing rounds.

    when you say *3sc, skip next sc, 1sc* and all of this is repeated… are there to be 4 sc between two skipped sc stitches or just 3? I’ve done it both ways and the row finishes even when I have just *3sc, skip next sc* (leaving off that last sc) …just curious. 🙂

  12. ^^

    well, that’s the way i did it. 🙂 and the hat in the picture is the result… just give it a try, i’m sure, it will look great ❤

  13. I must have been half asleep when I was trying to start this, because when i woke up the next morning it made perfect sense. But now I’ve gotten to the last line of your instructions, where you say *1 sc in each sc around* (do this until you think, it’s enough ^^)

    Does this mean you just keep doing 1 sc in every stitch around and around until it is the size you want? It seems to me that would not make the same pattern as in your picture, but maybe it will.

  14. Ok well; I think I know what you mean for the first step now. I think you mean chain 8, then sc in the first chain you made.

    However, now I’m confused as to what you mean for the other rows. When you say „3 sc, 2sc in next sc“ I can think of two different things this could be:

    1. In next stitch 3 sc, then in the next stitch 2 sc; so you would go around alternating 3sc in one stitch, then 2 sc in the next, then 3 sc, etc.

    2. Chain 3, then 2 sc in the stitch; then chain 3, 2 sc in stitch

    I tried it the first way, then thought I misunderstood and started over doing it the second way. But then it folds in on itself. But I can’t imagine doing 11 sc in one stitch (as you get toward the end of the pattern)!!

    Perhaps I should just try to find an easier hat.

  15. ^^that’s true, but the CHAIN is what you use when you have nothing… like the first SC you made. in every book and print-pattern, that’s called chain ^^ but yeah, it’s the SC, indeed. 🙂 do you now see what i mean?! you know, i’m german, and sometimes, explaining things in english is hard o_O


  16. Maybe I don’t really understand what you mean. You seem to use „chain“ and „single crochet“ interchangeably, but from what I understand they are not the same stitch. Is that what you mean?

  17. hi, jenny 🙂 no problem at all 😀 you start to chain 8 – to make it a circle, you do one single crochet into the first stitch you made… it’s like the „ring“ in that granny square tutorial ( ) – except for it’s a little bit wider ^^- there are many pictures to show you 🙂

    i don’t know, if i found the right words…. 🙂 but keep in mind that this is a ring, maybe that will help!

    hope, it did 😀

  18. I’m a little confused still…do you start by making a chain and then doing the first 8 sc in that chain? I don’t understand how you just start with sc….but then again I’m not a very advanced crocheter.

  19. Okay… I think I got it! I will have to wait until I get home from work to give it a try but I am mentally crocheting it in my head. Ha! I will let you know if I have any other questions and let you know how it turns out! Have a great weekend!

  20. 🙂 yes, you chain 8 and then stitch to the first you did. is it understandable?!
    just looks like this:

    and you do the next single crochet into
    it looks like a circle then ^^

    hm, maybe i should post a picture. 😀 let me know if you need one! 🙂
