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). Join with sl st, do not turn.

Round 2: 2 DC into each stitch around (30 stitches). Measure gauge. Hat should measure 3 inches. Join with sl st, do not turn.

Round 6: 1 DC into each of next 8 stitches. 2 DC into next stitch. Continue pattern of *1 DC into next 8 stitches, 2 DC into next stitch* around (63 stitches). Join with sl st, do not turn.

    Hi, in Round 6 you say, “2 DC into fifth stitch”. This is after I dc in 8 stitches. Id’s this an error? Is it dc in 8 stitches and 2 dc in next?

    Hi, Kandi – Yes, the pattern should read “DC into next stitch. Thanks for catching the typo-I’ve corrected in the post!

    Hey JJ
    In round 6 the pattern should read 5 dc then 2 dc. I have redone the round several times. Please double check me. Thanks

    Do you do a slip stitch at the beginning of every round?

    Yes, you do! Thank you for the note. I’ve added that you slip stitch to join every round.
