Snowflake hat










Get ready for the winter with this snowflake hat. This pattern uses only very basic stitches so it is beginners friendly. The size of the hat is easy to adapt - it depends only on the band which is the first to make. If you are not experiences with making hats or with sizing them just use another hat you have for measuring the pieces.

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

Yarn: yarn thickness 3, DK, light
optional: metalic thread, snowflake or other button (I bought the button from amazon)
Hook size: 4mm (hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: sc, hdc, ch
Finished size: Can be made in any size, just adjust the band for the required size.

Abbreviations (US terms):
st - stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
ch - chain
yo - yarn over
ss - slip stitch

Notes:
- The hat band is made first
- The pattern is made from the band to the top of the hat
- I have added metalic thread on the horizontal lines only to make the hat more festive





Pattern:

Band of the hat:


Row 1: Ch10, hdc in the second ch from hook, hdc in each st (9 st), ch 1, turn.
Row 2: hdc in back loop only, end with ch 1, turn (9st).
Repeat row2 till the band is long enough for the hat (hint: use another hat to check the band size, have in mind though that some yarn stretches more than others). 
Join the last row with ss with the first row or sew the ends.

Now that you have the band make a row of hdc around, make sure to finish with even numbers of hdc st.

Body of the hat:


Row 1: Ch1, draw one loop from the same st as ch 1 and next 2 st (insert the hook in the same st as starting ch, yo and draw a loop, do the same for the next 2 st), now you have 4 loops on the hook, yo and draw through all, ch 1.
* Insert the hook in the last worked st and draw a loop, do the same for the next two stitches. Now you have 4 loops on the hook, yo and draw through all, ch 1*. Repeat * - * around, end with ss to ch1.







Row 2: Repeat row 1.

Row 3: (optional: add metalic thread to the yarn and crochet with both for the next 4 rows) ch1, hdc in the same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch1.

Row 4: ch1, hdc in the back loop only in the same st, hdc in the back loop only in each st, end with ss in ch 1.

Row 5, 6 : repeat row 4


Drop the metalic thread here and continue with the basic yarn thread

Row 7: ch 1, insert the hook in the same st as the ch and draw loop, insert the hook in the next 2 st and draw loop. There should be 4 loops on the hook. Yo and pull through all loops, ch1. * Insert the hook in the last worked st and draw a loop, insert the hook in the next 2 st and draw a loop, there are 4 loops on the hook, yo and pull through all loops, ch1*. Repeat * - * around, end with ss in starting ch.


Row 8, 9, 10, 11, 11: Repeat row 7

Row 12: Repeat row 3
Row 13, 14, 15: Repeat row 4

Row 16-28: Repeat row 7.


Sew the ends to form the top of the hat, sew a nice pompom. I have added a beautiful snowflake button at the band.
