You have found one HECK of a compilation of crochet hats and beanie patterns, all FREE, right here, so welcome friend!!

Browse through the list below and I guarantee you will find your next project right here!

Happy Stitching Folks!

Wave Crochet Hat – You can wear this beanie with the ribbed bottom down for a slouchier fit (as pictured above). Or you can fold that section up for a more fitted cap. Make it using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Buff, available from Amazon.

Yara Beanie – Comes in Child, Teen & Adult sizes. Erangi made it using 1 skein of Red Heart Soft yarn – Deep Sea available from Amazon.

Crochet Ribbed Beanie – This crochet ribbed beanie is NOT your average single crochet ribbed hat. It has a braided look that makes it unique. Shehnaaz made these beanies using Lion Brand Color Made Easy yarn, bulky size 5 that is on the thinner side.  She used colors Mineral yellow ( I could only find Pittsburgh Yellow), Birch (I found this Feels Like Butta in White), and Medium Gray (I like this Big Value Super Chunky yarn in Grey), all available from Amazon.

November Twilight Slouch Hat – This beanie started out as a guy’s crochet hat but morphed into a ladies slouch hat! Kirsten used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Grey Heather, available from Amazon.

La Vie En Rose Earflap Hat – This sweet ski hat pattern with earflaps is not just for babies. Kirsten has included 6 sizes so you can make this hat for everyone in your family! It is an instant classic that will help keep you and your kiddos warm on the ski or sledding slopes this winter, and who doesn’t love the look of pom-poms and string ties?! She used a sturdy, soft acrylic yarn for this hat pattern – Red Heart Super Saver in Petal Pink.

Crochet Baby Hat with Ears – This hat is available in size 2T, but Mery does explain how to make it in any size you want! Mery made her hat using Alize Lanagold yarn, and I only found Light Cream on Amazon for you, but you can of course use any other DK Worsted yarn to make these cute hats!

Lemon Peel Stitch BeanieThis crochet beanie pattern is part of a pattern bundle using the lemon peel stitch, one of Tahryn’s favourite stitches. She’s put a crochet beanie, fingerless mittens and scarf bundle together all using this stitch. It’s great for beginners as the texture is very forgiving, and will hide and little mistakes that happen when first making things to wear. To make this hat, Tahryn used Paintbox Simply Aran yarn, which I couldn’t find on Amazon, but found this gorgeous Blush Marriner Aran with Wool yarn instead!

Slouch Hat Pattern – This is a great pattern for beginners and can be made in any Worsted yarn #4. Used here is Red Heart Soft Yarn in Really Red and Light Grey Heather.

Hunter Heart Hat – This simple crocheted heart hat is Kimberley’s most requested crochet pattern design! She’s thrilled to finally be sharing it – for FREE! Inspired by her collaboration with Jillian Harris and Etsy this toque is warm but not too thick, works up quickly, and looks like knit (but is actually completely crochet)! Available in Baby – Adult, using Chunky / Bulky size 5 yarn, like this Alpaca Yarn in Pink and Bernat Softee in White.

Luxe Leopard Beanie – Available in sizes for Baby through to Adult! It uses 2 main colors, 1 skein each. Kelsey used Color Made Easy bulky 5 yarn.

Alien Rainbow – Kat’s latest spiral design is this uniquely styled Alien Rainbow Beanie. The colors start out at the top of the antenna then they cleverly merge to form the top of the hat. Yarn used was Red Heart Super Saver (medium weight; 100% acrylic) in Cherry Red, Pumpkin, Bright Yellow, Spring Green, Blue, Amethyst, Soft Navy, White, Black.

Halloween Spiral Hat – This is a cute hat with an attached spider, perfect for Halloween! Available in baby through to adult (large) size! Kat used Red Heart Super Saver yarn (medium weight; 100% acrylic) in Black and Red.

Turkey Hat – This hat is perfect for baby’s first Thanksgiving. The body of the hat is worked in a continuous spiral then the features of the hat are made and sewn on following the detailed instructions and photos in the post. Kat used Red Heart Super Saver (medium weight; 100% acrylic) in Cafe Latte, Coffee, Red, Pumpkin, Yellow, Spring Green, Blue, White, Black.

Textured Slouchy – Tulip stitch makes the lovely texture of this hat. Part of the #hatnothate anti-bullying campaign, made using Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Dusty Blue.

Autumn Slouchy – I thought the lacey flower design of this hat looked really interesting and fun to make.  The yarn used for this hat was “I Love This Wool Naturals in Biscuit”. I’m not sure where to source it, so I found this Natural Alpaca Tweed by Mary Maxim in Raw Cotton, instead, available from my fave Amazon!

Boys Slouchy – These textured, colorful slouches can be made in adult and child sizes. These hats were made with Caron Cupcake in “Tangerine Dream” yarn (currently unavailable on Amazon) so why not try the Caron Cupcake yarn “Mint Smoothie” or “Berry Muffin” instead?

Collection of Cloche Hat patterns – The Whoot have put together this beautiful collection which includes hats to buy on Etsy, but I have included it here because there are tons of free tutorials and patterns listed here in sizes for babies through to adults.

Butterfly Baby Beanie – To fit baby 3-6 months. Made with King Cole Baby Glitz yarn in some gorgeous yummy colours available from Amazon.

Elegant Hat Pattern – Balmoral style of yesteryear, this beautiful item will definitely grace any bonce that wears it. Designed by Kim Guzman and made using Caron Simply Soft yarn, beautiful colours available on Amazon.

Sephine Slouch Hat – The Sephine Slouch Hat has a lovely texture that really captures the eye. The combination of a lacy shell stitch and a puff stitch are what create the unique texture in this trendy spring accessory. Yarn used is Red Heart Soft in Grape, available from Amazon.

90’s Bucket Hat Pattern – Designed for adults and made with Lily’s Sugar and Cream yarn in Indigo, Darsi has designed this super 90’s style crochet hat that can be teamed with your scrunchies and mom jeans!!

Faux Stained-Glass Butterflies – Crayons & Cravings

“Painted using bright watercolors, these beautiful faux stained glass butterflies would look great hanging on the wall. A fun way to display these watercolor butterflies in a window is to make 2 and glue them together, back to back. Then, hang them from the ceiling using fishing line or clear thread so it will give the illusion that they are flying. This butterfly craft is great for older children or adults. For younger children, you might want to complete the glue steps, allow to dry, then simply have the children paint their stained glass butterflies. Click through to the blog post to get the printable butterfly template and full tutorial.”

Crochet Turtleneck Dog Sweater Pattern:

This is just so adorable!! Made by Memory Lane Crochet, you can visit their site to see what else they create by clicking here.

Crochet dog sweater

How it’s made

The turtleneck dog sweater crochet pattern is easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches. Additionally you’ll need to know how to work into the front and back posts and loops. You’ll also need to be okay with working into the raw edges.

Crochet pattern info

Hook sizes

6.5mm crochet hook

Yarn

Chunky yarn – 148yd / 136m. We recommend Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn in Baby Pink.

Abbreviations

  • ch – Chain
  • blo – Back loop only
  • st/sts – Stitch/stitches
  • sl st – Slip stitch
  • sc – Single crochet
  • hdc – Half double crochet
  • 2hdc – Increase (2 half double crochet in 1 space)
  • sc2tog – Decrease (single crochet 2 together)
  • hdc2tog – Decrease (half double crochet 2 together)
  • BPdc – Back post double crochet
  • FPdc – Front post double crochet

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

6.5mm hook – 2” x 2” = 5 rows of 7 hdc

Finished size

The following measurements are taken of the garment at its smallest size and its stretched size.  Using an acrylic yarn will give your sweater more stretch than other fibres such as cotton.

  • Back length : 16cm
  • Neck circumference : 24cm – 40cm
  • Waist circumference : 42cm – 50cm
  • Leg circumference : 13cm – 20cm

Pattern notes

  • I do not count chains in my stitch count.
  • Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.
  • Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.

Ebun Hat Pattern

ebun hat crochet pattern
 This hat is available in one size and would fit most adults.

Skills required:

Chain (ch), Foundation crochet cord, Tunisian crochet technique (alternating forward (FP) and return (RP) passes), Tunisian simple stitch (tss), Tunisian purl stitch (tps), Tunisian knit stitch (tks), end row changing colours, changing colours as you go, binding off in Tunisian crochet, blocking, Locking Mattress Stitch.

Skill level:

Finished measurements:

The final cowl measurements (blocked):

51.5 x 28 cm (when ribbing is not folded or 21 cm with folded ribbing) cm (approx. 20.75 in x 11.25 in (when ribbing is not folded or 8.5 in with folded ribbing))

Materials and tools:

Expression Fiber Arts North DK (66% Extra Fine Merino Wool, 34% Pima Cotton | DK | 100 g (3.5 oz) = 241 m (264 yds)) – (A) try this yarn in lilac, and (B) this yarn in powder! 1 skein each.

Gauge:

Blocked Gauge:

5.5 (I/9) mm hook: 19 sts x 15 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 in) over st pattern

5 (H/8) mm hook: 19 sts x 15 rows= 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 in) over ribbing pattern

 

Stitch guide:

Tunisian crochet stitches are worked in forward and return pass from right to left, with the number of stitches (loops (lps)) increasing on the hook during the forward pass and decreasing during the return pass.

Return pass is worked in the same way for all stitches (rows of stitches) used in this project as follows:  1 ch, *yrh, draw through 2 lps on hook, rep from * until 1 lp on hook.

Edge stitches:

Right edge stitch- This is the first stitch and is not usually worked into because there is one loop on the hook left after completing the return pass of the previous row. This one lp corresponds to the first stitch of the new row.

Left edge stitch- This stitch is referred to in the pattern as the End Stitch (ES) and is crocheted as follows: Rotate the end of the fabric towards yourself, insert the hook under both bars (left and right) of the last st, yrh and pul.

  • First row of Tunisian crochet: Insert the hook in the back bump of second ch from hook, yrh and pul across. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian simple stitch: Insert the hook from right to left under front vertical bar of the next st, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian purl stitch: Bring yarn to the front on the work and hook, insert the hook from right to left under the front vertical bar of the next st, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.
  • Tunisian knit stitch: Insert the hook from front to back between the front and back vertical bar, yrh and pul. Standard return pass.

Bind off: Insert hook from right to left under front vertical bar of the next st, yrh, pul and pull through the lp that is on the hook. One loop remains on the hook.

RP End row changing colours in Tunisian crochet: The new colour is added when finishing the return pass of the previous row and 2 lps are remaining on the hook. Yrh with the new colour and draw through 2 lps.

Changing colours as you go: When changing the colours within a row in Tunisian crochet, place the new strand of yarn over the old strand. This locks the old colour in place and prevent gaps occurring between the different colour sections.

 

Stitch charts:

Ribbing

 

Main stitch pattern (colourwork)

 

Notes:

The Ebun Hat is worked flat, RS facing from right to left, and assembled using the Locking Mattress Stitch along the short sides of the project.

The ribbing is worked in two parts; first half is worked continuously from the foundation cord till Row 10. The project is then placed RS down and another 9 rows of ribbing are worked from the other side of foundation cord, followed by the colourwork section to the top of the hat.

Ribbing is made using smaller hook, while the main body of the hat is made using larger hook.

In the stranded colourwork (the background colour is carried over and wrapped around the pattern colour every 2-3 stitches to avoid loose floats.

It is important to keep the passive yarn taut but not too tight to avoid distorting the diamond pattern), use colour A for tks and colour B for tss (EXCEPT for Rows 40-41, which are in worked colour A). This combination gives the final project a distinct texture.

Both Edge Stitches are worked in colour A.

Instructions:

Ribbing

With A and smaller hook, make crochet foundation cord 98 sts long.

Row 1 FP: Insert the hook under top front and back lps of second st from hook, yrh and pul across. 98 lps on hook.

Row 1 RP and all other RPs: Standard RP.

Row 2: *Tps, 2 tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Rows 3-9: As Row 2.

Row 10: Bind off.

Place the ribbing RS down with Row 10 being at the bottom. Attach A to the first st of the other side of crochet foundation cord (under front and back lps).

Rows 11-19: Rep rows 1-9.

Body of the hat – colourwork

Change to larger hook. Work tks in colour A and tss in colour B.

Row 20: *Tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 3 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 21: *2 Tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 22: *Tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 3 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 23: *2 Tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, tss; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 24: *Tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 3 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 25: *2 Tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 26: *Tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, 3 tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks; rep from * to last st, ES.

Row 27: As Row 25.

Row 28: As Row 24.

Row 29: As Row 23.

Row 30: As Row 22.

Row 31:  As Row 21.

Row 32: As Row 20.

Row 33: *2 Tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, tss, 2 tks, 2 tss, 2 tks, tss; rep from * to last st, ES.

Rows 34-39:  Rep rows 20-25 once.

Rows 40-41: With Atss across to last st, ES.

Row 42: Bind off.

 

Finishing:

Weave in ends and block to final measurements as in schematic. It is recommended to block the project in two stages, first with the project laid flat and second with the ribbing folded at the crochet foundation cord.

Join two short sides by Locking Mattress Stitch (See Special Techniques).

Turn hat inside out with WS facing. Using yarn needle and approx. 20 in of yarn, thread yarn between every 2-3 sts of last row around the whole row. Pull the yarn tight enclosing the crown. Make a knot securing the closing and turn hat right side out (RS facing). Attach a faux fur pompom using loose ends of drawstring if needed, otherwise these can be woven in on the inside of the hat.

Special techniques:

Foundation Crochet Cord

  1. Make a slip knot allowing enough yarn on the short end for the length of the foundation cord
  2. Place the short end of yarn over the hook from front to back
  3. Yarn over the hook with the long end of yarn and pull through both lps on the hook
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for required number of stitches.
