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!

CROCHET CHEVRON HAT:
1. Hdc in 2ch ch from hook. Hdc in each ch. Turn. (7 sts)
2. Ch 1. hdc in same st. Hdc in next 5 sts in BLO. Hdc in last st going through both loops. Turn. (8 sts)
Repeat row 2 until your band reached approx. 19″ (or until it fits your head snugly). Achieve this measurement by gently pulling your band. You want the hat to be snug.
Fold the the band in half and sl st the ends together forming a band. Turn the band so the loop is on the top and the seam is on the inside. Continue on to the body:
Work the hat body in BLO, this allows the stitches to line up properly.
Note: To work the color work, be sure to carry your unworked yarn and alternate back and forth according to the graph. You will only be working with two yarn colors at a time.
For help changing color or reading a graph, watch this video:
1. Ch 1. Sc around the top of the band, echieving 72 total stitches. Join.
2. – 25. Work the graph, repeating it 12 total times to complete each row. Each square on the graph will be one sc. You will begin each round with a ch 1, and end each round by sl st into the first st. Be sure you are working in BLO so the graph lines up properly.
After you complete row 25, tie off and leave a long tail.
Finishing the crochet chevron hat:
Turn the hat inside-out. Using your long tail, sew a loose running around the top. Pull the end, cinching the end shut. Tie a firm knot and weave in the end. Turn out right-side out.
Finished the hat by adding a yarn pom-pom or a faux fur pom-pom. You can make either of them yourself ;)
