Top This Child Crochet Hat Pattern | www.petalstopicots.com | #crochet #hat #pattern

A few months back I posted about how my son begged me to buy this adorable Top This Yarn at my local yarn store (it was so cute that it wasn’t too difficult to say yes!). He loves the lovey I made for him with it (you can get the free crochet pattern for the lovey here), but now has asked me to make him a matching hat.  So make one I did, and of course wanted to share the crochet hat pattern with you. Enjoy!

“Top This” Child Crochet Hat Pattern

Here’s what you will need:

  • Top This Yarn with your choice of animal (<- affiliate link; scroll to end of post to see more options)
  • I hook
  • yarn needle and scissors

Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.

 

Pattern as written is sized for a child. To adjust the hat pattern for a different size, use this handy Hat Size Chart for Preemie through Adult {Free Printable}.

 

Make a magic ring, or as an alternative, chain 4 and join to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as stitch here and throughout), work 8 hdc in ring, join to first hdc — 8 sts.

Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same stitch as join and each st around, join to first hdc — 16 sts.

Round 3: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same stitch as join, 1 hdc in next, *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in next, repeat from * around, join to first hdc — 24 sts.

Round 4: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same stitch as join, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, repeat from * around, join to first hdc — 32 sts.

Round 5: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same stitch as join, 1 hdc in each of the next 3 sts, *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in each of the next 3 sts, repeat from * around, join to first hdc — 40 sts.

Round 6: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in same stitch as join, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, *2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, repeat from * around, join to first hdc — 48 sts.

Rounds 7 through 14: Ch 1, work 1 hdc in each st around, join to first hdc — 48 sts.

Rounds 15 and 16: Ch 1, work 1 hdc in same st as join, 1 FPdc around post of next st, *1 hdc in next stitch,  FPdc around post of next st, repeat from * around, join to first hdc — 48 sts.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

With a yarn needle, attach animal head to the middle of the top of hat by weaving ribbons on the head through the inside stitches. Weave each ribbon in a separate direction through a few stitches and knot ends together to secure. Snip ribbon ends short enough to be hidden but long enough to untie for washing.

    I made the Bunny Hat for my daughter several months ago, no pattern just measured her head as I crocheted. Thank you for sharing your pattern, my daughter wants more hats.
