Kenny’s Hat, Tunisian Crochet

Welcome back to another pattern, everyone! It feels like I haven’t posted in weeks (though it’s really only been two). Between my day job and my crochet life, it’s been a busy couple of months. I’ve got WIPs all over my home, half-written patterns on my laptop, and a list …

Hats & Beanies Winter Patterns

Tunisian Bend Stitch Hat

This pattern was requested by a YouTube subscriber as part of a series of Tunisian Crochet patterns. This project is for intermediate to advanced crocheters who are familiar with Tunisian Crochet stitches: TS and Purl. In this pattern, we will be skipping and crossing over stitches, so you will need to be comfortable with basic Tunisian stitches in order to complete the pattern.

Now let’s talk about yarn. In the tutorial, I used a medium yarn for both the brim and the hat. In the pattern, I used a bulky #5 yarn (for the purple hat in the tutorial). You can use ANY yarn you want for your hat. If you chose a different sized yarn than what is written in the pattern, you will need to adjust your hook size to match your 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.

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: 1 skein of medium yarn for the brim.

2 skeins* of a bulky yarn, size 5, in one color, for the body of the hat.  

*You only require one skein to make the hat, however, you will be using a thread of yarn on each of the two ends of the hook. It is easier to use two skeins to keep your yarn from tangling, but you can use a single skein and use both a side pull and a center pull in order to have two threads to work with. 

Hook: 6 mm Tunisian Crochet hook, double-ended. You can use this same hook for the brim, as well, but you’d only use one side. 

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

Notes: This pattern is worked in the round in order to achieve the “twisted” look. Crochet your brim and sew it closed (so it is ready-to-wear), then crochet the body of the hat. The body is crocheted in one size, and without decreases. You cinch the end to close the hat.

Hats & Beanies Winter Patterns

Chunky Crochet Hat

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.

Hats & Beanies Winter Patterns

Twisted Moss Stitch Hat

This pattern is surprisingly easy to crochet, and looks fantastic no matter what yarn you use! With that said, I should probably talk yarn options here.

The yarn I used for the green and tan hat is a size #1, fingering yarn which makes a lightweight hat great fall or spring. Yes, I know, that is super thin, but please note that I am working two threads simultaneously. So it makes my project thicker, and easier to work with than working with just one thread.

The teal and grey hat is crocheted using a size #3 light yarn. It makes a thicker, more winter-friendly hat than the fingering yarn.

You can use ANY yarn you want, but please note that once you get to the bulky yarns, you’ll end up with a super thick hat that may not look as nice. But you are the artist here, so use the yarn of your choosing.

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.

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. 

Hook: G, 4.25 mm or H, 5 mm. For a tighter knit, use the smaller hook.  

Additional materials: scissors, measuring tape & needle. 

Notes: This pattern is worked in the round in order to achieve the “twisted” look. Crochet your brim and sew it closed (so it is ready-to-wear), then crochet the body of the hat. The body is crocheted in one size, and without decreases. You cinch the end to close the hat.

Hats & Beanies Winter Patterns

Alternating Posts Hat

Let’s talk about this pattern for just a moment. I get loads of questions about the yarn I used for this hat, so I thought I’d address them here and hopefully get you started with your project 🙂

Skill Level: Intermediate

The yarn I use in the tutorial and in the pattern is a size #1 fingering yarn. Yes, I know, that is super thin, but please note that I am working two threads simultaneously. So it makes my project thicker, and easier to work with than working with just one thread.

Why don’t I use a thicker yarn? Because I really, really love the feel, weight, sheen and drape of this yarn for this particular pattern. Does that mean you have to use this yarn? No. You can use any yarn you want, in any size you want. You just need to adjust your hook size if you use a medium 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.

Why does your hat look different than mine (if you used a different yarn)? The yarn you use makes a HUGE difference in the final look of your project. If you use, say, Hygge yarn, You’ll have a soft, but fuzzy hat. If you use Caron Simply Soft, you will have a similar look to my hat because both yarns have a similar sheen to them. If you use a cotton yarn, your stitching will stand out more but will have a matte look. See what I mean? Just because we are using the same pattern, doesn’t mean our end results will be the same if we used different yarns.

The last question we’ll cover before moving on to the pattern and materials, has to do with cinching vs. decreasing to close the hat. I cinch the top of the hat in this pattern. There are no decreases for a couple of reasons:

  1. Try as I might, I was unable to find a good way to decrease without ruining the look of the hat. I’d have to decrease in blocks of two stitches, which would then result in large gaps and ultimately change the look of the stitching. I found that the best way to close the hat and not jeopardize the look of it, was to cinch it closed.
  2. This pattern, at least the video part, is intended for beginners. I tried to keep it as simple as possible, and I felt that decreasing (especially with what we’d have to do to decrease this pattern), could prove complicated or overwhelming to a beginner.

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

Yarn: Woolike, by Loops & Threads (available at Michaels, in U.S.) Size 1 fingering yarn, 3.5 oz / 100g, 678 yd / 620m

  – 2 skeins* (You can make two adult hats with 2 skeins.)

Hook: G, 4.25 mm

Additional materials: Scissors, measuring tape, needle (any needle you can fit your yarn through will work). 

Optional: Pom pom for the top, tag/label

* Note on yarn: You will be crocheting with two skeins simultaneously throughout the pattern. This makes the yarn a little thicker and easier to work with.

To crochet with two skeins: pull a thread of each skein, line up the ends, and crochet as usual.

Watch the full tutorial for this pattern, here. The top one is the beginner version. The bottom one is for intermediate to advanced crocheters.

Beginner Tutorial

Your initial chain length is the “Head Circumference” measurement. 

Multiples of 2

Crochet a chain, in multiples of two, in the length that will cover the circumference of your head. Please see chart above for 

sizing. For example: crochet 88-90 chains for an adult beanies and measure. Your chain should measure between 21-23 inches in length. 

Advertisements

Row 1: CH 2. Turn your work around. DC in each stitch of the chain beginning on the 3rd chain from your hook.

Row 2: CH 2. Turn your work around. FPDC in the first post of the chain. BPDC in the second post. Alternate crocheting FPDC and BPDC in every post of the row. When you reach the end of the row, DC in the space between the last post, and the chain at the end of the row.

Intermediate/Experienced Crocheter Tutorial

Row 3: CH 2: Turn your work around.  If your first stitch is a FPDC (in the previous row), make a BPDC. If your first stitch is a BPDC (in the previous row), make a FPDC. Crochet the opposite stitch to what you made in the previous row. This will create a woven look. So for every BPDC of the row, you’ll crochet a FPDC in this row, and vice-versa.

Rows 4- on: Repeat row 3 (alternating post stitches) until you reach the desired height for your beanie. Typically, I crochet 7 to 7.5 inches of the alternating posts and then I can make a ribbed brim to finish the beanie at about 9 inches in height.

For the brim:

You can choose to make the brim a different color, or you can continue working in the color on your hook.

Row 1: CH 2. Turn your work around. DC in each stitch.

Row 2: CH 2. Turn your work around. FPDC in the first post (and every even-numbered post of the row). BPDC in the next post (and in every odd-numbered post of the row). Alternate working FPDC and BPDC until you reach the end of the row. 

Row 3: You’ll be extending your posts, from the previous row, to create a ribbed look. So crochet a FPDC in each FPDC of the row, and a BPDC in every BPDC.

Repeat Row 3 until you make a brim that’s about 2 inches in height.

Once you’ve completed the brim, weave in all your loose ends so we can sew the hat closed.

To sew the beanie:

To sew the sides together: Fold the beanie in half, with the outside of your beanie folded in (so it’ll be inside-out), and sew the edges together on the long side. You can either crochet them together using a SC, or you can use a  needle and yarn. Once you reach the top, make a knot yout yarn. 

To sew the top: On the top (the side opposite the brim), you’ll sew in and out every few stitches all the way around the top of the hat so that when you pull the thread, the beanie will close. Pull the thread tight once you finish sewing and close the top of the hat. Sew back and forth across the closed part of the beanie to reinforce the closure stitches, and knot your yarn. 

Weave in any remaining ends, flip your beanie right-side-out, and you are finished. If you chose to add a pom pom, sew your pom onto your beanie.
