This crochet winter hat is the PERFECT beginner project. It’s literally just double crochet stitches (in the back stitch) the entire time.
Tools Needed for this project:
- 2 Skeins of Yarn (Weigh: Bulky 5 or Super Bulky 6) I used Lion Brand Yarns Hometown USA, Super Bulky, 6. However, mine did come out a bit heavy, I would use a bulky 5 yarn for next time!
- Size L (8mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Faux Fur Pompom Ball for the top of the hat. I bought my here on Amazon
Row 1: dc in the fourth chain from the hook and each ch following, turn (34)
Row 2: ch 3, dcblo in each dc to the end of that row, turn (34)
Row 3 – 22: repeat row 2 until you have enough rows. I used 22 rows, because I have a larger head and like a looser fit. You may only need 18-21 rows.
Next, using the tapestry needle, seam together the edges. I used this video’s technique to make a seamless edge.
Closing top — Use a tapestry needle and the strand of yarn leftover from previous seam (or new piece of extra yarn), weave yarn in and out of each stitch. Tighten circle and use the needle to sew in any gaps in top of hat.
Weave in ends, add faux fur ball and voilà !
