I was recently asked to design a crochet yarmulke pattern and of course I wanted to share the design with you as well! I chose a sport weight yarn so that it wouldn’t be too hot or heavy and added some long single crochets to give it a little interest.

Crochet Yarmulke Pattern


Here’s what you need:

  • 3 colors sport weight yarn (less than 1 skein each)
  • F hook
  • yarn needle, scissors

Special Stitch

Long single crochet (Lsc): Insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop to the height of the row being worked, complete as single crochet (the Lsc takes the place of the next stitch in the current row).

 

With CA, make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a ring).

    I have never heard of this before, what do you do with it?

    • Kara April 16, 2014 at 2:43 pm #

      It is a traditional head covering that Jewish men and boys wear 🙂

        Thank you so much for posting a yarmulke pattern. I have been looking for a longtime for one. My dear husband is Jewish and I wanted to do something special for him. Thank you again. I printed the pattern and subscribed to your interesting website. Claire

        • Claire September 27, 2014 at 2:00 pm #

          May I also add, that Jewish women may also wear them. They may only be worn if that person has been bar or bat mitvahed. My spelling may be off but for more information a person may look up Jewish on the internet. Thanks

          • Kara September 28, 2014 at 1:23 pm #

            I did not know that. Thank you, Claire!

            There is no requirement to be a certain age or a certain gender; any human being of any age or gender or religious affiliation (or non-affiliation) may wear a kippah (Hebrew) / yarmulke (Yiddisih) / skullcap.

            Covering one’s head = respect for the presence of God.

            Perhaps you were thinking of a tallit (Hebrew) / tallis (Yiddish) / prayer shawl: only Jews over the age of 13 wear one, and it’s not a “requirment” to wear one. Wearing a prayer shawl fulfills the commandment to wear “fringes” on the “corners” of one’s garment throughout the generations (Num 15:38 ffl). Jewish children under the age of 13 are not required to fulfill any of the commandments for themselves.

          It is my absolute pleasure, Claire! So glad you liked it 🙂

      Although they look the same, they are different. But just look at the clergy who are Christian – including the Pope – to see them wearing skullcaps.

      21st Century – it’s time for Christians to know more about the religion and customs of Jesus.

      Nancy A, you must leave in a very isolated part of the world. Time to use your computer to find out more.

    This is very nice. As I am not Jewish, what is a yarmulke? Thank you for your patterns.

    • Kara April 16, 2014 at 2:42 pm #

      A yarmulke is a traditional head covering that Jewish men and boys wear.

      • HGB September 30, 2014 at 12:05 pm #

        As I replied to Claire, there is no requirement to be a man or boy. Anyone, of any gender, religion (or lack thereof), any age may wear one. Covering one’s head = respect for the presence of God. The head covering is typically worn during Jewish worship services (so if you’re invited to someone’s bar or bat mittzvah, for instance, you are likely to be offered one) and at Jewish funerals. However, there are individuals who wear one all the time.

      How can so many Christians NOT know about Jewish customs and rituals. If you know Jesus, you would know something about the religion he followed, including the newer ones – just as I knew that Catholics didn’t eat meat on Fridays and then the Pope said it was ok to eat meat but some still followed the old rules.

      The more we know about each other the better relations can be. Education can do wonders.

      I get tired of hearing Christians say ‘I never met a Jew.’

      My comment is always: I thought you knew Jesus.

      • Claire September 28, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

        A Crochet site seems an odd site to be having a religious discussion, but if it serves to enlighten and is in good spirit, I say go for it. Re Marl’s statement, she is so right in her statement you know a Jew if you know Jesus. Not to be confused with the Jewish religion. There are several very different divisions of Jewdism (sp). From Orthodox, Conservative and Reformed. Yet they are technically all Jews. However, Jews do believe in God and not in Jesus. He is not their Savior, He was a prophet. The Jews did not crucify Christ, that was the Romans. Go to a reliable internet site or three and read what they believe, how they live, what they eat and the High Holidays they observe. Interestingly, I am LDS (Mormon) and I practice my religion. My husband is Jewish and he practices his religion. He goes to my church and supports me in my callings and I go to his Synagogue and observe his practices. There doesn’t have to be one or the other. Both of us have learned, have a better understanding, and it doesn’t have to be either/ or. The LDS love the Jews and pray they can find peace and get their land back. The Jews love the LDS because we do support the Jews. Jew in Boise, Idaho, have used LDS churches for their High Holidays before they were able to build a social hall of their own. Why the LDS church? Because there was “Christian” ornamentation on the wall like crosses, statues, ect. I hope this has helped in understanding both religions. To continue a further discussion email me at cedge745@juno.com. Thanks

    Thanks for this pattern! I have been looking for one to crochet with little success. I plan to make some for Muslims in our community.

    • Kara April 16, 2014 at 2:41 pm #

      Glad you find it useful, Pat!

    • Marl July 23, 2014 at 7:02 am #

      Before you do, make sure you use the style which Muslims use. They might take offense if the skullcap looks like a Jewish one.

  4. Nancy April 14, 2014 at 7:52 pm #

    Lovely, thanks for posting

    • Kara April 16, 2014 at 2:41 pm #

      Thank you!

  5. Nancy April 20, 2014 at 10:46 pm #

    Really nice job. I love that is almost has a textured look!

  6. Barb Hill May 13, 2014 at 11:31 am #

    Thank you, my step mother is a Rabbi and this would be a special gift I can make for her. Wish I’d seen it before Mother’s Day. I actually made myself one for my wedding.

  7. Marilyn September 19, 2014 at 9:08 am #

    Kara, you did a beautiful job on this! My neighbors are Jewish and are always helping with our dogs. This would be a great gift for them…thanks!

    • Kara September 19, 2014 at 6:42 pm #

      What a thoughtful gesture that would be!
