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.
