This is one super-chunky, thick, and soft crochet hat for all of my friends that live in cold winter weather places!

The pattern calls for size #6, super-bulky yarn BUT you can use any yarn you want 🙂 In the pattern, you will also see a skein of medium yarn listed for the brim. This again, is up to you. I prefer to use medium yarn for the brim to keep it from being too bulky, but it’s a personal preference.

If you do chose to use a different yarn, here are some suggested hook size adjustments, but please feel free to try different gauges and use whichever one you like best:

  • Size #1 yarn, use 4.25 mm hook
  • Size #3 or 3.5 yarn, use a 5 mm hook
  • Size #4 yarn, use a 5 mm or 5.5 mm hook
  • Size #5 bulky yarn, use 6 mm hook.
  • Size #6 super bulky yarn, use 9mm hook.

If you’d like some yarn suggestions, head to the bottom of the post. I’ll also link the shop pages where you can find each yarn.

Here are the materials you’ll need to complete this pattern:

Yarn: 2 skeins of any light or medium size yarn. One skein in each of the two colors you want to use. Color 1, will be used for the brim. 

Yarn: 1 skein of a medium-sized yarn for the brim.

          1 skein of super bulky, size 6 yarn for the hat 

             (appx. 74 yds/ 67 m for an adult hat).

Hook:  5.5 mm, for brim

             9 mm, for hat

Additional materials: scissors, measuring tape & yarn needles that fit each of your yarns. Pom Pom, optional. 

Notes: This pattern makes a thick, chunky winter hat. For a more lightweight hat, substitute the chunky yarn for a size 3 or 4 medium yarn. This hat is worked in the round. The body is crocheted in one size, and without decreases. You cinch the top to close the hat.

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
