Since learning how to crochet a few months ago I have become hooked! (Cheesy pun intended). I’ve made bralettes, scarfs, infinity scarfs and amigurumi toys.
I found this super easy pattern to crochet a winter hat and wanted to share it with you all. It’s a Lion brand yarn pattern which can be found here. I actually chained 47 to start as I copied the height of one of my favourites Abercrombie and Fitch hats.
- a 5mm (H) crochet hook
- yarn needle
- worsted weight yarn from love crochet.com
- cardboard to make a pom poms
Some useful videos:
- how to single crochet in the back loop only (you can make the hat with single crochets only however you won’t get the ribbed effect)
- how to make a yarn pom poms
My hat in pictures
This is after I weaved yarn through the longer length of the hat. Once threaded I pulled the yarn together and tied a couple knots to secure it. At this point it looked how it does in the above picture however there was still a small hole so I sowed it together.
This hat took me a few hours over two days. Single crochets seem to take FOREVER to grow especially after my last project was made with treble crochets – but stick with it and you’ll have a lovely homemade crochet hat!
