Men’s Crochet Hat Pattern: A Basic

mens crochet hat pattern

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

Materials: 

  • 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.

Men’s Free Crochet Hat Pattern

Hi friends!  I haven’t posted a free crochet hat pattern in a while, so I thought it’s high time I share one.  I woke up this Saturday morning at 7:40am and got started with my day (translation: reading, French vanilla latte, crocheting).  Don’t you just love Saturdays?

This hat was designed for a guy, but could easily be adapted for a girl.  The ribbing on the bottom might be a tad masculine, but if it’s your style – go for it!  Teaser: This hat pattern would be the perfect compliment to JJCrochet’s first guest post, so keep it in your back pocket.

Materials

Size H (8/5.00mm) Crochet Hook

100 yards Worsted Weight Yarn (I used basic Red Heart Super Saver)

Special Stitches

FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet): Yarn over, insert hook from right to left behind post of stitch from previous round. Yarn over, pull loop from behind post (3 loops remain on hook). Yarn over, pull through two  loops (2 loops on hook).  Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

Pictures always help (click to enlarge):

Step 6: Yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook

Step 5: Yarn over, pull through one loop.

FPSC (Front Post Single Crochet): Worked the same as FPDC, but no yarn over at beginning. Insert hook from right to left behind post of previous round. Yarn over, pull loop from behind post (2 loops on hook). Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

Gauge

First 3 Rows in Pattern = 4 Inches in Diameter.  To ensure a perfect fit, take time to check your gauge and adjust hook size if necessary.

Men’s Crochet Hat Directions

Chain 3, join with slip stitch to form ring.

Round 1: CH 2 (counts as first DC, now and throughout).  12 more DC into ring (13 sts).  Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Round 2: 2 DC into each stitch around (26 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Round 3: *2 DC into next stitch, 1 DC in next stitch,*  Repeat around (38 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Round 4: *2 DC into next stitch, 1 DC in next 2 stitches,* Repeat around (50 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Round 5: * 2 DC into next stitch, 1 DC in next 6 stitches,* Repeat around (55 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.  Note: You might get 56 stitches, but that’s alright! It won’t affect the overall size of your hat and it will still turn out just fine.  If you do end up with 56 stitches in Round 5, it’s recommended you make 57 stitches total so you have an odd number to work the edging across.

Rounds 6 – 10: 1 DC into each stitch around (55 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Rounds 11 – 13: Ch 2, *FPDC into next stitch, DC in next stitch,* Repeat around (55 sts). Join to top of ch-2 with a SL ST.

Round 14: Ch 1 (counts as first SC), *FPSC into next stitch, SC into next stitch,* Repeat around *(55 sts). Join to top of ch-1 with a SL ST.

Fasten Off.
