Daddy and Me Crochet Hat

 

So, I have been trying to come up with a pattern for a mens hat for a while now that wasn’t too feminine and I finally made one I actually like! And the guys like it too! I randomly found this camouflage yarn at Walmart and knew it would be perfect for my mens pattern. Nothing screams “manly” like a camouflage beanie to match with your dad! My nephew is the cutest little stinker in his hats and he loves wearing them so I knew whatever I made for his dad needed to come in a mini size for my favorite little guy. I hope you guys like this pattern. It is one of my favorite to make so far.

Materials:

1 skein of Red Heart Camouflage yarn

4.5mm hook

Scissors

yarn needle

Special Pattern Stitches:

Gauge: 11 post stitches across is 3 inches long and 5 rows up is 1 inch tall.

FPHDC: YO and insert hook around the back of the stitch on the previous row, YO and pull loop up, YO and pull through all stitches on the hook.

BPHDC: YO and insert hook around the front of the stitch on the previous row, YO and pull loop up, YO and pull through all loops on hook.

Decrease: YO and follow the pattern (either FPHDC or BPHDC) but don’t finish the stitch (you’ll have 3 loops on your hook. YO and work the next post stitch (YO insert into post, YO and pull up loop) YO and pull through all 5 loops on hook.

Note: when you do your starting chain, make sure you’re keeping your tension loose! This hat is a very fitted beanie so if you do the chain too tight it will not fit properly. Make sure to check your gauge before you start!

note: when doing your decreases, it can get kind of confusing if it should be FPHDC or BPHDC so just keep following the rotating pattern. I tried to make the pattern as detailed as possible but if you have any questions, comment below and I will do my best to explain!

I hope this picture helps to show how the decreases look in the ribbing.

Bulky Knit Hat

Hey guys! I know I usually do crochet patterns but I knit this hat up one day and I am obsessed! So, I had to share it with you all. I clearly have a thing for big pom poms and bulky yarn! This hat only took me about 2 hours to knit and is so easy and very beginner friendly! Lately, we have had FREEZING temps and a million inches of snow (ok, not a million but after 2 feet, it seems like a million!) and every time I have to leave the house I throw this guy on and it definitely keeps me warm. If you don’t like the folded up part of the hat, you can always unfold it and wear it as a slouchy beanie. Anyway, here is the pattern! I hope you enjoy it!

Materials:

1 skein of Yarn Bee- Effortless super bulky in Barn Owl.

size 11 (8mm) knitting needles

scissors

yarn needle

Pattern:

Note: this hat is worked in a flat piece and seamed together at the end.

CO 36 sts

Row 1: (wrong side) *K2, P2* repeat from * to * to end of row.

Row 2 (right side) *P2, K2* repeat from * to * to end of row.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 8 inches ending with a row 2.

Row 1 of crown shaping: (wrong side) *K2, P2tog (decrease 1 st)* repeat from * to * to end of row

Row 2: (right side): *P2, K1* repeat from * to * to end of row.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 of crown shaping until entire piece measure 11 inches

Finish off, leaving a long tail for seaming the hat, closing the top of the hat and attaching the pom pom.

Seam the hat.

Weave the end in and out of the stitches along the top of the hat and pull tight. Set aside.

Make pom pom.

Attach pom pom to the top of hat and make sure its secure. Weave in your ends and you’re all set! I did not block my hat. When it isn’t on it does look like it needs to be blocked but when its actually on, it looks like it was blocked so I didn’t find it necessary.

I’m not real good at writing knitting patterns (yet) so I hope its simple enough to understand! if you have any questions, feel free to comment and thanks for visiting!

Mommy and Me Crochet Hat


I seriously couldn’t wait to do a mommy and me pattern! This is one of the first patterns I designed on my own and I was so happy with the way it turned out that I had to make Ella one too! This pattern is super easy and very beginner friendly. I used crochet thread and a bulky weight yarn together and it definitely won’t be the last time I do this. I love the way it looks and it was way easier than I had anticipated. I hope you and your mini enjoy these hats and have as much fun taking pictures with them as Ella and I did!

Adult Hat Materials:

I used Big Twist Rainbow Classic in black and only used about a quarter of the skein

Red Heart Crochet Thread size 10 in white

6mm crochet hook

scissors

yarn needle

Adult Hat Pattern:

Note: This hat is worked using sc and only working into the back loops.

Holding both the thread and yarn together Ch 33

Row 1: sc into second ch from hook and rest of stitches on ch. (32) ch1, turn.

Row 2-45: sc into back loop only in every stitch in each row. (32) ch1, turn.

at the end of row 45 finish off, leaving long tail for sewing the seam of the hat.

Sew up the seam of the hat using whichever stitch you prefer (I used the mattress stitch) and weave in the end.

Using just the yarn, thread the needle (get a decent length of yarn for stitching the top and attaching the pom pom) and weave the yarn through every 3rd stitch around the top of the hat and pull tight to close the gap. Set aside. Make your pom pom and attach with the yarn and needle. Make sure the pom pom is secure and weave in the rest of your ends!

at the end of row 32 finish off, leaving long tail for sewing the seam of the hat.

Ella loves having a hat that looks just like mine and she’s always asking to match me and gets so excited when she knows I’m making something for her so expect more mommy and me patterns! I am also going to start working on some daddy and me (for father and son) patterns in the future! I really hope you all enjoyed these cute little patterns!
