This cute crochet chevron hat is made up of single crochet stitches and alternates between two colors to make up the graph creating a stunning chevron effect. The pattern includes a link to a helpful video that shows how to easily change colors and read the graph.

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!

You’re new favorite crochet hat, perhaps?
Hi I saved a pin to make the free chevron hat crochet pattern. But there are no links to the free pattern. Only what you will need to make the hat. My granddaughter loves this hat we went and bought all the yarn colors and now no pattern. Please help.
Hi Carol! Please send me an email: Bethany (at) whistleandivy (dot) com
Am I supposed to slip stitch in the rounds that make the body of the hat? If so how do I make it not look noticeable?
Hi Brittany! Are you asking if you need to slip st to join? Yes, you will join with a sl st. To make the seam less noticeable, I have found that if you change color on the last st (the color you will use in the next round) it looks a bit nicer.
Hello. I purchased the single pattern from Ravelry. I read in another comment about a video tutorial. Is there a link to the video or is it only through your Endless Bundle?
Hi Shannon! Currently my videos are only in the Endless Bundle, but if you have a specific question about the pattern, I would be more than happy to assist you. Please let me know how I can help!
Thank you for your reply. I think I’m getting the bundle! : )
Thanks for your support Shannon!
For aome reason the hat body i made is very unstretchy when pulled horitzonally. Vertically is stretches really well. I’m making this as a baby hat and would like some stretch so it will fit for a while. Any advice?
What yarn are you using? Did you work a gauge swatch?
Thanks for reasponding! I have this yarn: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HBLDJSP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_4QGFM5DPS28EGTCBRXQ3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
It is 5 bulky, 6mm hook.
I didnt work a gauge swatch as i was ging to choose the head that fit the hat, lol. I’m thinking i made the stitches too tight or i should use a bigger mm. Any thoughts really welcome! This is my first color graph and these directions were amazing! I love it.
Thanks, glad you like it!
The larger yarn coupled with only slightly larger hook will make your stitches tighter, that could be most of the problem. Tighter stitches mean less stretch. I wrote the pattern with #4 worsted, so if you happen to have any on hand, you could maybe try with that, and then make sure to start with a gauge swatch so you know which hook to use.
Do you join with a slip stitch at the end of each row of the graph, or work it in spiral? Thanks!
You join at the end of each round, refer to row 2 for some more info and the repeat number!
Would you have a left handed version of this graph and/or pattern?
It’s symmetrical, you can work it backwards and it will look nearly the same!
great…..I will start in the bottom left corner :) Thanks for the fast reply.
This hat is great. I am making many different sizes for the not forgotten box for the kids and adults. I am using up all my scrap yarn. Looks like I will have at least 200.
It is nice I can help people who need hats for the cold weather in Ohio.
What a great idea!
If I wanted to make this pattern even bigger for an adult could I just add an additional 6-12 stitches to the 72?
Yes! You would increase by 6 to keep the chevron pattern consistent.
