Beginner Hat Crochet

While many associate crocheted hats with the cold of winter, you can always find great hat patterns to crochet, regardless of the season. Additionally, you don’t need to be an expert to crochet a hat. There are plenty of easy hat patterns available.

An easy way to make a hat is to crochet a rectangle that is large enough to fit around your head when held together to form a circle. Then simply sew up the sides and the top and you are done!

Another easy crochet hat pattern is the traditional “skull cap.” Instead of working in rows, this pattern is worked in rounds. These work up very quickly and make great gifts for the cold of winter.

Easy Skull Cap (can be adjusted for either adult or child)

Materials:

4 Ply worsted weight yarn

'H' OR 'I' Crochet hook (check yarn label for correct hook size)

Directions:

Note: Chain 2 always counts as 1 dc. (or chain 3, whichever you usually like to use). Chain 4 or 5 (whichever you usually like to use to make a ring). Sl st in first st to form a ring.

Abbreviations:

Sl st – slip stitch

Ch – chain

Dc – double crochet

St – stitch

Round 1 - Ch 2, 11 dc in ring. Sl st in top of ch 2. (12 dc)

Round 2 - Ch 2, dc in the same st, 2 dc in each st around. Sl st in top of ch 2. (24 dc)

Round 3 - Ch 2. * 2 dc in next st, dc in next st*, repeat ** around. Sl st in top of ch 2. (36 dc)

Round 4 - Ch 2, dc in next st. * 2 dc in next st, dc in next 2 st*, repeat ** around. Sl st in top of ch 2. (48 dc)

Round 5 - Ch 2, dc in next 2 st, * 2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 st*, repeat ** around. Sl st in top of ch 2. (60 dc)

--- If making child-sized cap use fewer "2 dc in next st" in this round or skip this round.

--- If making large adult cap repeat this round, or just add a few "2 dc" in next round.

Round 6 - Ch 2, dc in each st around. Sl st in top of ch 2.

--- Repeat round 6 until cap is the length you prefer. Finish Off.
