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.

Men's Free Crochet Hat Pattern

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 4: Pull yarn behind post (3 loops on hook)

 

How to Front-Post Double Crochet
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 Ribbed 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.

Free Knit Cowl Pattern – Chunky

My love affair with cowls continue, and that’s good news for you.  Usually when I’m obsessed with things, I create patterns for those things so I can love them even more.  I just wrote a post about cowls that includes a great sampling of crocheted and knitted designs.  Of the bunch, one of my favorites is a thick, squishy, absolutely-chunky, knit cowl.

Chunky Knit Cowl Pattern
Chunky Knit Cowl Pattern

It’s a simple pattern.  So simple you’ll hate yourself for not thinking it up first (although I’m sure this isn’t the first time this cowl’s been made).

Make one for yourself (I did) or make a couple for Christmas gifts for your friends (did this, too)

Materials

Size US 17 (12.75mm) Knitting Needles

1.5 skeins (160 yards) Lion Brand Thick & Quick – Wool Ease.  You can also use any extra-chunky yarn.

Chunky Knit Eternity Cowl Pattern

CO 15 stitches.

Work Moss Stitch until you run out of yarn.

Moss Stitch

Row 1 – *K1, P1* across an odd number of stitches

Repeat Row until you have about 3 feet of yarn left.

Bind off.

Fasten off yarn, leaving a 12 inch tail.  Using a large darning needle and yarn like thread, sew short sides together with a half-twist to give cowl an infinity loop.  (For details on infinity loop, see bottom of post here.)

Cowl will measure 8.5 inches wide; 70 inches long.  Voila!

Chunky Knit Fall Hat – Open Lace Design (Free Pattern)

So I went to our public library this weekend and found they have 300 million knitting and crochet books.  Okay, maybe not 300 million, but close.  Coming from suburbia where I was lucky to find 10 knitting books at my local library (no joke), this was heaven.

I checked out a few books and promptly went to buy more yarn.

I started knitting a chunky sweater, but when that failed, I ripped it out and went back to what I know: knitting hats.

There’s something about knitting on a Sunday afternoon that just feels right.  So homey, so relaxing – a great way to start a new week.  I want to apologize in advance for the lack of good pictures, but, my dear blog reader, I will share with you because I know you will not judge.  Perhaps when I’m home again, I can bribe my sister to model, but I couldn’t wait share with you so here it is:

Slouchy Knit Hat/ Beret for Fall

We’ve been having colder weather here the past week in Ohio and I thought it was only fitting to create a slouchy/ chunky/ knit beret.  I’m not sure if I had seen a hat like this recently or it was only a design that existed in my mind, but I worked a simple lace pattern to create this hat.  I wanted a hat that was open and not really a wear-out-in-the-freezing-cold-hat, but more of a look-at-me-i’m-cute fall hat.

I would also caution that the instructions that follow provide more of a framework for knitting this hat rather than step-by-step instructions.  If you’re an advanced beginner knitter and aren’t afraid to experiment, you’ll be fine.  If you’re a newbie knitter and like to follow instruction verbatim, try it – you might surprise yourself!

Knit Fall Hat Pattern

Materials

Size 17  (12.75mm) US knitting needles

1 Skein Bernat Roving (I used the “Bark” color)  or any bulky weight yarn.

Directions

CO 32

Rows 1 – 5: Work K2, P2 ribbing. (32 stitches)

This next part requires you to get creative, but you can do it.  Read the directions below so you know what you’ll have to do.

For the next row (Row 6), you want to increase a couple stitches so your hat is a little slouchy.  There’s no rhyme or reason to my increasing, I just worked increased until I went from 32 to 38 stitches.  To make increases, randomly work *K1, YO, K1* (instead of K1, Yo, SKK) every so often in Row 1.  This is you chance to be creative – mix it up and bit and experiment!

Row 6 (RS): *K1, YO, SSK*. Last two stitches – K2.(Remember to randomly increase so you end up with 38 stitches).

Row 7 (WS): *P1, Yo, P2Tog*.  Last two stitches – P2.  (38 stitches)

Repeat Rows 6 and 7 until hat measures 7 inches from beginning, ending with a purl/ WS Row (Row 7).

It’s time to get creative again for the decreases.  Don’t worry – you can do it!

Next Row: K1, *SSK, YO, SSK*

Next Row: P1, *P2Tog, Yo, P2Tog*

Repeat Rows ^ twice more.

Final Decrease Row: *SSK, SSK, YO, SSK, SSK*

Final Decrease Row: *P2Tog, Yo, P2Tog*

Repeat 2 Final Decrease Rows until hat measures 9 inches from beginning and only a few (7-8) stitches remain.

Cut yarn.  Weave through remaining stitches on needle.  Sew up side seam of hat.

And there you have it – your semi-creative knit slouchy hat that’s perfect for winter!

Free Crochet Cowl Pattern – Short Version

This is the hippest, warmest crochet cowl to beat the winter wind (and one of my go-to favorite patterns).  Show the cold weather who’s boss with this infinity crochet cowl pattern! It works up quickly and only takes 1 skein of super chunky yarn.

Short Chunky Cowl Pattern

Short Crochet Cowl Pattern with Infinity Loop

Materials

Special Crochet Stitches

**Note: If the foundation chain or herringbone half double crochet scares you, just work regular chain and half double-crochet stitches.  Your cowl will turn out the same.

FCH – Foundation Chain (or single crochet): Chain 2. Insert hook in the first of two chains.  Yarn over, draw through loop (chain stitch just created). Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (Single crochet created). You now have two fch completed. *Insert hook in upper loop of stitch just created. Yarn over, draw through loop. Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook.* Three fch completed. Repeat from * to *across for desired number of chain stitches.

HHDC – Herringbone Half Double Crochet. Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch. Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook. (This will be a little awkward, but it’s correct. You might have to use your left thumb and forefinger to really hold the stitches so you can pull through both of them.) Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook.

Crochet Pattern

FCH 46.  Do not join

Round 1: Chain 2 (counts as first HHDC now and throughout).  HHDC in each stitch across. (46 HHDC)

Round 2: Chain 2, turn.  HHDC in the BACK LOOP ONLY of each stitch across. (46 HHDC)  Working in the back loops only creates a slight ribbed effect.

Repeat Round 2 seven more times for a total of 9 rounds.

Fasten off, leaving a 12 inch tail.  Lay piece flat in a long rectangle.  Grabbing either end, bring short sides together.  Add a twist by flipping the right side once.  Match up sides and whip stitch together.  Weave in ends.

To create the infinity loop, instead of sewing the sides of your cowl together like this like you normally would:

Right Side           Left Side

A                              A

B                               B

You should sew them together like this:

Right Side           Left Side

A                                B

B                                A

Make a cowl for your sister, keep one for yourself, or give it as a gift to your coworker.  However you use it, enjoy your crochet cowl with this free pattern and spread the love!If you’d like to make a longer infinity crochet cowl, check out this crochet cowl scarf pattern here.

Crochet Flower/ Star Pattern

It’s 1:30am Wednesday morning so naturally, I grab my trusty J crochet hook and a skein of yarn, fully intending to crochet a flower.  The funny thing with free-form crochet, though, is you can start out with one idea and end with a completely different project.  Ever been there?

Crochet Flower for Beginner

Instead of crocheting a flower, when I was finished, I looked down and saw I’d crocheted a sharp-looking flower or a 6-point star.  I don’t know if the mustard-yellow yarn was sending my brain a subconscious message or if this is what I get for crocheting past midnight, but whatever the cause, I present to you this non-flowery, very pointy, crocheted star.

Pictures, free instructions, and full crochet pattern follow.  I’ve never created a picture tutorial, but figured I’d try it out.  Let me know if it was helpful – Enjoy!

Step-by-step beginner crochet instructions for a free crocheted flower.

Materials: Any size crochet hook (I used a size J) and worsted weight yarn.

Size: My crocheted flower/ throwing star measures 5 inches across, point to point.

Free Coffee Cozy Crochet Pattern: FPF

It’s Friday already?  Alrighty then, time for another free crochet pattern as part of JJCrochet’s Free Pattern Friday.

I woke up this morning and was brainstorming what I could make and offer as a free crochet pattern for FPF.  I wanted something quick for summer, something useful, something practical.  Something people could make that would work crochet into their everyday routines.  A couple months ago one of my good friends, C.J., suggested I made crochet coffee cozies.  I instantly loved the idea, but hadn’t gotten around to crocheting up a prototype until today.  So thank you, C.J. for your inspiration!

C.J.’s Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy

Materials

  • Size E (3.5mm) crochet hook
  • Size F (4.0mm) crochet hook
  • Small amount Worsted Weight Yarn.  I used Vanna’s Choice Solids.

Directions

With smaller hook (size E), Chain 25. Join with sl st to first chain.

Round 1: Using larger hook, Ch 2 (counts as first hdc now and throughout), hdc in each st around (25 st).  Join to first hdc with sl st.

Round 2: Ch 2.  *Ch 1, skip 1 st, 2 hdc in next st*  Repeat around until beginning.  Ch 1, 1 hdc in same last st.  Join to first hdc with sl st.

Round 3: Ch 2.  1 hdc in first ch-1 space.  *2 hdc in next ch-1*  Repeat around until beginning.  Join to first hdc with sl st.  (Note: Do NOT ch-1 between each hdc cluster.)

Round 4: Ch 2, hdc in each st across (25 st).

Round 5: Repeat Round 2

Round 6: Repeat Round 3

Round 7: Using smaller hook, Ch 2, hdc in each st across (25 st).

Fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Choose different colors for each round or alternate a striping pattern.  Below is the color scheme for the two coffee cozies pictures:

Crochet Coffee Cozy 1

  • Round 1: Bright Coral
  • Round 2: Gray
  • Round 3: Purple
  • Round 4: Bright Coral
  • Round 5: Purple
  • Round 6: Gray
  • Round 7: Bright Coral

.

.

Crochet Coffee Cozy 2

  • Round 1: Olive Green
  • Round 2: Grass Green
  • Round 3: Grass Green
  • Round 4: Olive Green
  • Round 5: Grass Green
  • Round 6:  Grass Green
  • Round 7: Olive Green

Experiment with your own colors to create your very own crochet coffee cozies to match your style.  They’re reusable, easy to wash, and a greener alternative to paper covers.  Happy crocheting!

FPF: Two Crochet Flower Patterns

It’s Friday again so that means free patterns.  Yay!  Happy Free Pattern Friday (FPF)!

Today, I’m giving you two different crochet flower patterns to try out.  The perfect accent for your summer project!  One pattern is a basic, 5-petal flower crocheted in the round and the other is a crochet rosette that’s rolled and sewn at the end.  Different techniques create two different looks, but equally beautiful crocheted flowers.  Of the two, which one’s your favorite?

Crochet Flower Pattern 1: 5-Petal Puff Stitch

Materials

  • Small bit of any yarn.  I used Vanna’s Choice, worsted weight yarn.
  • Any crochet hook you’d like.  I used a size H (5.0mm).

Special Stitches

Puff Stitch (PS): *Yo, insert hook in loop.  Yo, draw up a loop.  Yo, draw through 2 loops.* (<– I like to think of this as the first part of a regular dc if that helps.  Just leave off the last “yo, pull through 2 loops” you’d normally do when crocheting a dc.)  Repeat from * to * twice more.  4 loops on hook.  Yo, pull through all 4 loops.

Directions

Ch 3, join with sl st to form loop.

Round 1: ch 2, PS, ch 4.  *PS, ch 4*  Repeat from * to * 4 more times.  5 Puff Stitches total.  Join to first PS with sl st.

Round 2: Into each ch-4 space work, *sc, 5 dc, sc*.  To join, sl st in top of first ch.

Fasten off, leaving a 10 inch tail to weave onto a hat, pin, purse, sweater… whatever you’d like!

Crochet Flower Pattern 2: Rolled Rosette


Materials

  • Small bit of any yarn.  I used Vanna’s Choice, worsted weight yarn.
  • Any crochet hook you’d like.  I used a size F (4.0mm) to form a tighter rosette.
  • Darning needle

Note: Flower is worked horizontally, then rolled and sewn to create a bud.  If it sounds confusing, don’t worry, it’s not – pictures below so you know just what to do!

Directions

Ch 20 +1 (counts as first sc)

Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each st across (21 sc).

Row 2: Ch 1.  *Skip next st, [hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch 1, hdc, ch1] into next st. *  Repeat from * to * until two sts remain.  Ch 1, sc in last st.

Fasten off, leaving a 12 inch tail.

You should now how a curved piece that looks a little something like this:

On the side opposite your long 12-inch tail, tightly roll the rose along the bottom chain.  Like this:

All rolled?  You should have a budding rosette that’s ready to be sewn up.  Using a darning needle, weave long tail back and forth through the flower to anchor everything down.

Confused by the puff stitch or not sure how to sew up the rosette?  Leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail and I’d be happy to help.  Happy Crocheting!
