Free Crochet Hat Pattern

Delightfully Easy free Crochet Hat Patterns, for woman, with Step by step Photos included on how to Crochet a Hat. The more I crochet the more I love it, as a bit of a beginner crocheter I was looking for something easy to crochet, and take the next step on from the cute crochet flower headbands I had been making. Now I wanted to learn how to crochet a hat. I came across some easy FREE crochet hat patterns for woman and found a hat pattern that was easy to follow but also able to add in my own twist.

Surprisingly I found several free crochet hat patterns, but none that I would wear, most patterns for hats are the beanie, or skull type hats, I wanted something a little different, a little style and flair. So I made the 20s style flapper hat as shown in the picture below, with a pretty crochet flower embellishment.

This took me a few hours to complete, and I only know the basic crochet stitches and really I am a beginner. I find it increasingly fascinating the more I crochet the more I can create and adapt, to suit my personal taste, I actually had finished this hat, and decided it would look better with a deeper brim so went in and added it to it.

I Crochet Hats for Charity

I started to Crochet when my Brother was in the intensive Care Unit. I was told the clicking of the knitting needles were driving them nuts! SO I found a crochet hook and have been crocheting ever since.

Sadly my brother lost his fight and passed away. At the same time my dear friend "Little Lisa" was fighting her own Battle with Cervical Cancer, and a week after losing my brother I lost my mini me Lisa - When Lisa was first diagnosed she courageously set out to raise as much money and awareness for a charity in the UK that provided support and help to those who are affected by cancer.

Crochet became a type of therapy for me

I Cannot take part in many of the very activities held due to health reasons, so I crochet hats for my friends and all I ask for is a donation to - You can read about their fabulous work here, and even donate a little to help keep this wonderful family resource available.

Things to Remember When Crocheting a Hat!

The number of stitches in the first round of the circle is the number of stitches you should increase in each subsequent round. So, if you start with six single crochet stitches in the first round, you should increase by six single crochet stitches in each of the following rounds. In Round 2, you would have twelve single crochets. In Round 3, you would have eighteen single crochets. And so on. By Round 10, you'll have sixty stitches.

6sts x 10 rows = 60sts

Free Crochet Hat Pattern for woman

20's vintage style crochet hat pattern that is so today...

This is a very simple easy, adaptable pattern. You will find the majority of hats are made like this, the only difference is the shaping near the end to give that 20s' (flapper Cloche Hat) look.

Finished Size - Unstretched circumference is 22" but the hat can easily stretch to larger sizes.

I love the fact this hat pattern is so simple and is a perfect winter hat for those who like to keep their ears warm too as the loose fitting style around the ear part of the hat is perfect for this.

Yarn- I made this hat using Double Knit

If you use a stiffer more bulky yarn the Back LOOP Double Crochet ridges will be much more defined. If you want to leave out the ridges then you can just dc for the bldc throughout the pattern.

But finished with the rib, it definitely holds its shape better.

Adults Basic Beanie Pattern Free Crochet Hat Pattern

Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern

For different sizes use different hooks, and thicker wool

I like the Half double crochet (hdc) effect but for the beanie hat in the picture my daughter preferred a stretchier look so it was Double Crochet (dc) to make this crochet beanie.

Ch4 and join with sl st to form ring, ch 2.

Rnd 1: 10dc in ring, sl st to first dc, ch 2.

Rnd 2: 2 dc in next dc, and in each st around, sl st in first dc, ch 2.(20 sts)

Rnd 3: 2 dc in next dc, (dc in next dc, 2 dc in next) repeat around, sl st to first dc, ch 2. (30 sts.)

Rnd 4: 2 dc in next dc, (dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc) repeat around, sl st to first dc, ch 1. (40sts.)

Rnd 5: 2 dc in next dc, (dc in next 3 hc, 2 hc in next dc) repeat around,sl st to first dc, ch 1. (50sts).

Rnd 6: 2 dc in next dc, (dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc) repeat around, sl st to first dc, ch 1. (60 sts).

you have now reached the circumference of your hat, so if you think you need it larger just continue increasing in established pattern

Rnd 7-22: Dc in each stitch around, slip to join, ch 1.

(Work until desired length is achieved)

On the Last round I like to finish off with a smaller crochet stitch( so If I was working in DC I would finish with a row of 1/2 double crochet) hdc in each dc around, sl st to first hdc, ch 1. (60 sts).Fasten off and weave in ends.

Again add a little crochet flower design just finishes it off

A Stunning FRee Crochet Pattern for a Woman's Hat (Optional with Brim)

Very Chic and modern Crochet hat for Women

I love this long Double Crochet cross stitch womans hat - the original pattern has a brim but my daughter loves it without the brim.

I would say this stitch is a little bit fancier than the basics and you should be able to make a Long Double Crochet Crossed stitch. I must admit the amount of compliments my daughter has had about her new hat made up for learning the new stitch . Although the original Design by Crochetn'crafts has a brim on the front of the hat, my daughter decided she loved it without the brim.

Why I Crochet Hats. - .....for charity For my Mum and my little Me...Lisa M x

Crocheting started out when I found myself spending hours in an Intensive care Unit with my brother, sitting by his bedside day and night waiting on some miracle, hours I would sit and just create these hats. Sadly my brother lost his fight and passed away, However A love of crocheting was born and really as I dealt with immense grief as also later in the week a dear friend lost her battle with cancer, aged 35 year, I found comfort from crocheting. And it also had a more personal reason. She supported Maggie Cancer centers. Where latterly her family and herself were welcomed and found solace. Maggie's Cancer centers are throughout the UK and offer free, comprehensive support for anyone affected by cancer. Her friend has kept our Lisa's wishes going and raising money in all manners, bungee jumps, nights out for the girls, a huge annual dinner and dance, there is no stopping this girl!

although as yet I am not selling my hats via a shop, if requested I do make them and ask for donations to my friends charity work.

Please take time to visit and donate even just a little. The Big ShinDig
