groovy hat-in-a-flash – free pattern!

a hat you can make in (almost) minutes!  this yarn requires super bulky weight yarn and an L hook (or an N hook if you want it a little bigger!)  i used lion brand hometown USA and the hat took just less than 80 yards.

the pattern is very simple, using only single and double crochet stitches.

row 1: ch 3 (counts as first dc).  [sc in first ch, dc in first ch] twice.  sc in first ch.  connect to first dc with a sl st (so you should have 3 dc, 3 sc.)

row 2: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  dc in same st.  *sc, dc in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 3: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  sc in same st.  *dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st, sc in next st, [dc, sc] in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 4: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  dc in same st.  *sc in next st, dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st.   repeat from * around.

you can keep increasing in this manner until the hat is as wide as you need, following the increase pattern in sc, dc.  so if you wanted to keep making the hat bigger, the next row would be: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  *sc in next st, dc in next st, sc in next st, [dc, sc] in next st; dc in next st, sc in next st, dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st.

once the hat is as wide as you would like, continue as follows:

row 5: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  *sc in next st, dc in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 6: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  *dc in next st, sc in next st.  repeat from * around.

repeat rows 5 and 6 until your hat is the desired length!

    Hi, this is Jess from Lion Brand. I just wanted to thank you for using Hometown USA. Your hat looks fantastic! It’s such a quick and versatile pattern. I’m sure you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

    I’ve tried and tried to get this to no avail… how many do i chain before row 1??
    thanks

    hello kristine! to begin row one, you will make your slipknot and then ch 3. you will then sc in the very first st and continue with the pattern. it’s worked in the round, so every round is joined to the beginning ch-3.

    hope that helps!

    Hmmm…. and there I was wondering when you’d get to the ribbing… That is not part of the pattern, right? Because my hat just looks like the top portion all over. Did you make a strip a post stitch ribbing and crochet it on? It doesn’t look like that to me, though…

    • oshinn Says:

      hi imke! no, i didn’t add a ribbing at all, i just made the stitch all the way around. you could try a post stitch or also just a plain single crochet around looks nice!

    […] Moebius, calentito y rápido de hacer. Podéis leerlo también en inglés en el blog de Little Hippie Girl, y le he pedido permiso para traducirlo. Thank […]

    Just made this today and initially had the same difficulty that others had mentioned: My hat just didn’t have the ribbed look that the one in the picture does, so I took out a few rows and lined it up so that each dc was on top of another dc (rather than on top of an sc) and voila! subtle ribbing JUST like the hat in the picture! It appears that somewhere along the way, the stitches got off by one, so that dc is stacked on top of dc and sc is stacked on top of sc to get the stitches to look like the one in the picture. Hope this helps others.
