It’s been almost a year since I designed my first hat pattern. It feels like so long ago! I forced myself to read through my work, which in turn made me cringe. For example, I thought a half double crochet was a double crochet? This mistake leaves me feeling bewildered but it happened.

If you haven’t seen that first pattern, it’s right here. I’ll be keeping it up on my blog (with a disclaimer of course) as a reminder to myself of how far I’ve come in my pattern designing skills! (queue inspirational music & crochet montage here)

This time around I even crafted up some labels for selling and gifting my hats! I’ve included these printable labels in the paid version of this pattern.

Get the printable version of this pattern including a crochet diagram & label printables for packaging your crochet for $2.50 on Etsy.

  1. This is the nicest winter hat that I have ever crocheted. It’s thick and warm, and here in Western New York, that is just what we need. I used a 4.25mm hook, because these old hands have loose tension. Fits perfectly! Thanks!

  2. This hat looks amazing!
    I’m trying to make it with a 4.5mm hook and my 46 initial chains are only long 20cm. Is there a way for me to make it longer, without screwing up the pattern?
    Thanks!!

    1. Thank you! You could ch 56 and do a 5 sl st, 5 hdc repeat between the sc brim and sl st top of the hat.

      I hope this helps! I’m going to try to draw a diagram of the hat soon so that anyone can understand & alter the pattern.
