The Jenny Lee – New Crochet Hat Pattern

My mom periodically (no pun intended) gives me pictures of crocheted items from magazines, “Just for inspiration,” she claims.  This time, she was onto something.  That something became the basis for JJCrochet’s newest hat pattern: the Jenny Lee.

The magazine clipping my mom gave me was a Macy’s ad that featured this crocheted hat by Fossil:  Cute, right?  I liked the hat’s textured detail, button, and flower – what’s not to like?

Over Christmas break, I decided to experiment.  I got out the crochet hook and after much squinting at the tiny magazine pic, I came up with the perfect pattern.  And I’m not just saying that because I wrote it.  It’s quite addicting.  The mathematical element works out evenly which causes the hat to fit perfectly.  I especially like this crocheted hat because it doesn’t look like your typical double crochet; the puff stitch adds something a little special, don’t you think?

I named this Jenny Lee crochet hat pattern after one of my current college roommates who is sweet and subtle and everything fashionable, just like this hat.

You can purchase this PDF crochet hat pattern for $5 in my Etsy Store or instantly download it from Ravelry.  As a special intro, I’m giving away two copies of the crochet pattern via random drawing (woo woo!).

Free crochet hat pattern for women – Rachael’s Chunky Open-Weave Hat with Flower


Use this free crochet hat pattern to create your own crochet hat in a few hours.  Made with SUPER bulky yarn and with only 9 simple rows in the pattern, this hat pattern will have you lookin’ good in no time.

The crochet pattern is named after my good friend (and future roommate!), Rachael. This hat is crocheted in an open weave so it’s suitable for those below zero temperature days, but it’s chic and fashionable nonetheless. Because Rachael is eternally classy and always hot temperature wise, this is her perfect hat.

Materials

Gauge: First 2 rows in pattern = 4.5 inches in diameter.  Take time to check gauge.  Adjust needle size if necessary.

Directions

Ch 3, join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc now and throughout).  11 more dc into ring (12 dc).  Join to top of turning ch with sl st and at the end of each round.  Do not turn.

Round 2: 2 dc in each st around (24 dc).

Rounds 3 – 7: Ch 4 (Counts as 1dc + ch 1), *dc in next st, ch 1*.  Repeat from * to * around. (24 dc and 25, ch-1 sps)

Round 8: In ch-1 spaces and dcs, work 40 sc evenly spaced around.  (Clarification:  At the beginning of this round, you will have more ch-1 spaces and double crochets than 40 stitches.  In order to only work 40 sc in this round, you will have to skip some ch-1 spaces.  It’s okay to break out of your shell and skip stitches… you can do it!)

Round 9: Sc in each st around (40sc).

Fasten off.  Using darning needle, weave in ends.

Flower

Ch 3, join with sl st to form ring

Round 1: Ch 3, 9 more dc into ring (10 dc).  Join to top of turning ch with sl st.

Round 3: Ch 1.  In first ch-3 space, work 4 dc, 1 sc.  In each ch-3 space work *1sc, 4 dc, 1 sc*.  Repeat from * to * around to create 5 petals.  Sl st to first ch to join round.

Fasten off, leaving a 10 inch tail.  Using darning needle, sew flower to left side of hat.

Viola!  You did it!
