This pattern has been swirling in my head for a while. I finally gave it a shot and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out! I hope you all enjoy this pattern and I can’t wait to see all of your finished hats!
- If you’d like to purchase the PDF for this pattern, it is available HERE in my Etsy shop! I sell the PDF as a way of making just a tiny bit of money while I am a stay at home mom. The PDF is downloadable, printable, and a lot less wordy and picture-y than my blog post!
What You’ll Need:
Yarn – Worsted Weight Medium 4 yarn. I used Studio Classic, which is, sadly, no longer produced since A.C. Moore decided to close it’s doors. *sad whimper*
Hook – I used a J hook, but since my tension is so tight, most people will probably need an H.
Faux Fur Pompoms – (These are the pompoms I use. This link will take you to Amazon. This is an affiliate link. By purchasing from this link, I will make a small commission at no extra charge to you!)
Stitches You’ll Need to know:
Corner to Corner (c2c) – Instructions for C2C can be found in this video from Lion Brand Yarn. Instructions on C2C color changes can be found in this video from One Dog Woof.
Slip Stitch (slst)
Single Crochet (sc)
Single Crochet Back Loop Only (scblo)
The Hat Panel: Made with C2C
This hat is mostly about watching your gauge and measuring!
Measurement: My finished C2C panel measured almost 6.5″ tall and 21″ long.
Gauge: Five C2C blocks = 3.5″, 11 sc stitches (in brim) = 2.5”
This part of the hat will not be written out. I will be including charts you can open and download, or charts you can view below.

The Band/Brim: (my brim measured 2.5″ (12 st = 2.5″. This means my total hat height was 9″. I know this is a little longer than normal for an adult female hat, so feel free to make your brim a bit smaller if you don’t want your hat to be quite so long!)
This scblo band is attached directly onto the hat! I have to be honest, I had NO idea you could even do that, but you CAN! It’s a game changer, everyone. Check out this video for a beautiful tutorial! Just note that I use sc to attach the brim to the base of the hat, and the video uses slst. Either works!
At this point, you have two choices. You can whip stitch or sc your hat panel sides together and then begin with your ch 13, or you can attach your yarn to your starting corner and begin with a ch 13, waiting to join the sides together once the brim/band is complete. I chose to join the sides after I was done with the brim, but my tester chose to join the sides before starting the brim. Go with what feels right/easy to you!
Starting the brim – Chain 13 (or less if you want your brim to be shorter). The first ch st counts as a sc to attach the brim to the base of the hat. There will be 3 rows of scblo per c2c block.
Row 1 – sc in the first ch from hook, sc in each of the next ten chain stitches, sc to the second st on the hat panel to join the brim row to the base of the hat. (11 – will never include the sc join st)
Row 2 – sc into the next st on hat panel, turn, scblo across each st on the brim (11)
Row 3 – ch 1, turn, scblo across each st, sc to the next st on hat panel (11)
**Continue rows 2 & 3 over and over until you reach the end of your hat panel.
Weave in all your ends, and then whip stitch or sc your panel sides together (see photos below). Use the best matching yarn for this, as the yarn will show through the seam a bit with C2C stitches. Close your hat using this method by The Cozy Fox, then attach your pompom.
Ta-da! You’re done!
