Whipped this bad boy up this weekend because I wanted a basic men’s hat pattern. You know, for those projects where you want a neutral base. A few years ago, I made this men’s hat and wanted to create something that was sized a bit larger and without the textured band.
Finished hat will fit an adult male: 21.5 inches wide by 7.75 inches tall.
Men’s Crochet Hat Pattern
- 120 yards worsted weight yarn. I used Vanna’s Choice in tan
- Size H (5.0mm) crochet hook
**Important: Check gauge and either use thicker yarn or a larger crochet hook. After Round 2, hat should measure 3 inches in diameter**
Chain 3, join with sl st to form ring.
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first DC. Work Ch 2 at the beginning of every round in place of first DC). Work 14 more DC into ring. (15 stitches)
Round 2: 2 DC into each stitch around (30 stitches). Measure gauge. Hat should measure 3 inches.
Round 3: 1 DC into first stitch. 2 DC into second stitch. Continue pattern of *1 DC, 2 DC* around. (45 stitches)
Round 4: 1 DC into each of next 4 stitches. 2 DC into fifth stitch. Continue pattern of *1 DC into next 4 stitches, 2 DC into next stitch* around. (54 stitches)
Round 5: 1 DC into each stitch. (54 stitches)
Round 6: 1 DC into each of next 8 stitches. 2 DC into fifth stitch. Continue pattern of *1 DC into next 8 stitches, 2 DC into next stitch* around. (63 stitches)
Rounds 7 – 13: 1 DC into each stitch. (63 stitches)
Round 14: SC into each stitch. (63 stitches). Fasten off. Weave in end.
