Crochet Hat Pattern - Organic Cotton

Simple Crochet Hat from me, LazyT. Happy Holidays!
1 skein Nature's Choice Organic Cotton from Lion Brand Yarn (walnut color shown)
J (6 mm) hook
Fits adults/teens.

Ch 3, work 7 hdc in first st. Join. (8 hdc)
Ch 2, hdc in same. 2 hdc in each. Join. (16 hdc)
Ch 2, hdc in same, hdc in next. *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in next* Repeat from * to * around. Join. (24 hdc)
Ch 2, hdc in same, hdc in next 2 sts. *2 hdc in next, hdc in next 2 sts.* Repeat from * to * around. Join. (32 hdc)
Ch 2, hdc in same, hdc in next 3 sts. *2 hdc in next, hdc in next 3 sts.* Repeat from * to * around.
Join. (40 hdc)
Ch 2, hdc in same, hdc in next 4 sts. *2 hdc in next, hdc in next 4 sts.* Repeat from * to * around. Join. (48 hdc)

Repeat until out of yarn, or until hat is desired length. Fasten off.

*Optional - Fold up brim and sew on a button.©2011 LazyTcrochet

**My approximate gauge was 10 stitches X 9 rows = 4 inches. I ended up with 16 rounds of hdc, after the increases. When I increased to the 48 stitches, my circle measured approximately 6 1/4" (slightly stretchy). And this hat fits ladies/teens.
If your gauge is tighter, you could either add one more increase row (to 56 sts.) but that might be too loose, or you could try working with a larger hook (K).**

This is a cute hat. I wanted to know what size person is this for? I don't see where it says that. Thank you for sharing your patterns!

I've edited the post to say that it is sized to fit adults/teens. Thanks Margaret

How many rows did you do?

I am working this pattern and it appears to be a kid size hat. Has anyone else made it? I love it though.

HH said...

I just finished this pattern. It fit me perfectly and I am a pumpkin head (adult large).

I just finished this pattern. I like the end result very much, but where I joined my lines they came to a point. I like it because it adds a little something something, but I'm not sure what I did to cause therefore unsure how to prevent it. Any suggestions?

Well, when joining at the top of the ch 2, it shouldn't create a point. You'll end up with a diagonal line along the hat where the joining row is, but it shouldn't be pointed. I'm not sure how you did that!

hi. i was wondering what hdc meant. Thank you. love the hat. its adorable

Hi - hdc is crochet speak for half double crochet. (Yarn over the hook, insert the hook in the next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops.)

Can I make this with worsted weight yarn?

Hi! Thank you so much for this pattern! Not only is it FREE, but the directions are clear and correct! I have tried a few hat patterns that were written incorrectly. So, thank you again!
I had some of the same yarn on hand (except ivory color) from a shawl I had frogged. I have now made two hats from this pattern and still have yarn to make more.
I am donating them to the breast cancer unit at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville where my mother is currently undergoing treatment. This yarn is super soft for someone who has sensitive skin. Also, the pattern is excellent for this purpose because the stitch used helps to hide bare scalp where some hat patterns have gaps that are too big.
Your pattern and the yarn you used are the perfect combination for chemo patients!
