Crochet Pattern: Ribbed Wool Winter Hat

I’ve been working on Christmas presents while I wait for Baby (tomorrow’s my due date!) and this hat is my most recent creation. It’s simple but I like the uniqueness of crocheting vertical ribbing for a hat instead of crocheting it in-the-round (what I typically do). I used Patons Classic Wool Worsted yarn, which cost me $4.40 after a 40% off coupon at Joann’s. A wool hat for under $5? Works for me.

Supplies: 

  • Size J crochet hook
  • Approx. 3.5 oz. ball worsted weight wool yarn
  • Large darning needle

Chain 47.

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd chain from hook and in each ch across – 46 sc.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Working in back loops only, sc in each sc across. Repeat this row until piece measures about 15″ from beginning. This will fit a woman’s medium-sized head. Crochet a wider piece for bigger heads or a narrower piece for smaller. It’s pretty stretchy and forgiving.

Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through ends of rows along one long edge and pull to gather for top of hat. Knot securely.

Finishing: Seam short sides of piece together, knot, and weave in ends. Fold up brim to desired width.
