Welcome to Day Three of our Christmas Gifts in July. This pretty hat is another color work project. I am hoping that you have tried it and are hooked on this fun technique. (If you haven’t tried crochet color work yet, be sure to watch the video below, it’s easier than you think!). 

This graph is quite simple and only alternates between 2 colors, making it one of the simplest color work graphs you can find. But the finished effect is stunning!

  1. I made this hat for my daughter (2.5 years old) and it turned out great! The pattern was easy to follow and easy to alter for her head size!
    For the band I did approx 16” to fit her head and 66 stitches around. I followed the chart and only did to row 23.
    Hoping this is helpful to anyone wanting to alter for a toddler :)

  2. something not mentioned in that video for color change and discussing that graph. left handers go left to right on graphs not right to left. that could mess with a lefty. I had to figure it out myself. good thing I have had to figure it out for other patterns too.

  3. I must be nuts. I always have a hard time understanding instructions and even the chart and somehow the chevrons were diamonds on my hat. Haha. So I have diamonds and it’s pretty still. Might try again.

  4. Hermoso patrón (todos los que has publicado…) Lo hice con una aguja n°6 con un ala de 7 puntos y 72 puntos alrededor. El diseño es hermoso, entretenido y muy fácil. Gracias por compartir. ;) Tengo foto pero no puedo subirla…

  5. I made a gauge with a 5.5mm hook and it was big, so I change it to a 5mm. Starting with the body I realize that it was getting too tight so I change to the 5.5mm hook in the body and finished it. But it is still to tight… I think that maybe it is because of the yarn, mine is wool 100% so it is not very flexible. But I found it strange that I’m not the only one with this problem. It’s a pitty because I really like how it looks

  6. Hi,
    Could you tell me how many rows do you crochet in the brim? How do you distribute the 72 sc of the body first row around the brim if it has less than 72 rows?
    Thank you

    1. Because your brim may have more/less rows than me, it’s a bit tricky to explain. The easiest way it trial and error, and stop at the middle and try to have about 35 midway through.

  7. What size hooks do you use to do the hat? I want do a hat gor my baby he has 18 months. O have yarn size 3.5mm and hook 4mm it was ok?

    1. This hat is for an adult, so you would need to do a bit of tweaking to make it for a child. You would need to work the graph less times to the hat was smaller. I am sorry, I don’t have this pattern figured out for other sizes yet!

  8. Just made the band and as stated you’ve said make it to fit your head. I’m making for my 10 yr old daughter her head measured 21″. So I went to 19″ like stated. When I go around for the body in SC I am only getting 56, is there a certain number so that the graph will work? Multiples of 6? Etc? As in if I make the band and only get 60 stitches will the pattern work? As long as it can be divided by 6 equally or?….

      1. I made it but as everyone else has stated it was way too tight in the body and the brim was way too big in comparison. It’s really upsetting to know I wasted so much time on a project that didn’t turn out. I seen others comments and I figured maybe they had done something wrong etc but nope. It’s just not a very good pattern. I wonder how many people have made this and successfully

        1. 19″ is for an adult, so if you went down to less stitches around the body, then your hat would be very tight, while having a loose brim. I guess I may have not been clear about what your original question was. The hat is quite basic ( a brim that fits your head) and a sc in each st around. If it’s too tight, as with all crochet projects, it’s a gauge problem. To fix a gauge problem you would need to adjust hour hook.

  9. Lovely pattern. I was wondering, is this supposed to turn out as a slouchy or a beanie hat? Mine ended up being long, like a slouchy, but I was expecting a beanie. Thank you for your time.

  10. When you join with SL, are you joining with your working color (first few rounds off white) or with your next color change (navy)? My stitches aren’t lining up and look “cut” but the alternate color.

    1. The join will never look perfect, but if you join with the color you will use next it will look a bit better. You can even take it a step further and end the last st with the next color. I go back and forth as to which I prefer.

  11. I love this hat, but it is a little too tall. If I make another, I’ll likely end after 21 rows. Great pattern though!

  12. Hi Beth, I just wanted to dbl check the stitch count for the brim of the hat…it says 8 but it’s only written for 1 + 5 + 1 = 7… that typo or have I read something wrong? Thanks in advance 😁

  13. Hi. Quick question: how much would it mess up the pattern to read it left to right? I’m a lefty, and sometimes trying to mentally flip graphs makes my new-mom brain hurt. 😁

  14. Started this pattern and am a bit confused. At the end of the second row there’s a white stitch. The beginning of the 3rd row is a white stitch. I’m confused about what color to join and ch 1 with before starting the 3rd row with the different color.

    1. You are beginning row 3 with a navy blue stitch (the graph reads from right to left on each row), so work the last white stitch of row 2, by pulling through with navy blue. Then continue with navy blue to join and ch 1.

  15. I loved to find your Tutorials and Videos.
    After a stroke, I am coming back to Crochet, and Your Videos are the best therapy .
    God Bless You !!!

  16. I love the way your hat turned out in the picture however my hat was super tall and very tight as I worked up. :( and for some reason my band was wider than the bulk of the hat which I don’t like. Your hat is beautiful though.
