Crochet Beyond Awesome Hat – Free Pattern
I don’t even know what to say about this hat, I love it. The pattern is really easy and because of the size of the hook it is very quick to make. With this pattern, you might notice that it looks like it’s going to be too loose of a stitch, but I assure you, as you go along, you will see that this hat has perfect spacing in the stitches. The pattern below can be easily modified to whatever you would like it to be. I have made this one to fit an adult as a slouch hat. If you would rather not have a slouch hat, simply chain less in the first part of the pattern.
** As always, please feel free to use these patterns as much as you like, but please always refer back to this post to share the pattern so that we can continue to post them for free!**

Begin by chaining 25 stitches.
Row 1: Dc into the third st from your hook. Dc in each st for the row for a total of 23 stitches.
*Row 2: Ch 2, turn. Dc into the back loop of the first st. Continue to work bldc’s into each st of the row for a total of 23 sts.
Row 3: Ch 2, turn. Dc into the front loop of the first st. Continue to work fldc’s into each st of the row for a total of 23 sts.*
Row 4 – 23: Repeat the starred * instructions from row 2-3.
When you have reach the desired length (fits comfortably around your head), ch 2 then tie off your end. Make sure that you leave a long enough tail to stitch the seam together. Using your embroidery needle, stitch the seam together then tie off your work. You will notice that one side of you hat has a ribbed look while the other side does not. The ribbed side is the outside of the hat. The plain side will be the inside.
Once you have sewn the seam of the hat. Take a look at it and make sure it is flipped inside out so that the plain side is facing you. You will finish the hat like this and will flip it back at the end.
Row 1: Attach your yarn at the seam. Hdc an even number of stitches around the bottom of the hat. Aim for 46 stitches, however if you want the brim tighter, use less stitches. If you want the brim looser then simply work in more than 46. Once you have gone all the way around the hat, slst to join your row. Ch 1.
Row 2: Work a bphdc into the first st. *fphdc into the next st. Bphdc into the following st.* Repeat * instructions for the round. Slst to join your work at the end. Ch 1.
Row 3&4: Repeat instructions from row 2.
When your hat’s brim is to your desired length, simply tie off your end and weave in all loose ends.
It is now time to close the top of the hat. Using your embroidery needle again, weave your yarn around the top opening of the hat. Pull tight to close the opening then tie it off so that it won’t come loose. Once tied, flip your hat right-side-out.
A pom-pom might actually look really nice with this hat, but I think I like it more without. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Also, if you have any questions or are having any issues at all with the pattern, feel free to let me know and I will be happy to assist.
Happy crocheting everyone!
