Men’s Crochet Hat Pattern

Body of the crochet ribbed hat:

Ch 51. Measure the chain. If you are crocheting hat with folded brim, your chain must measure about 32 cm. Add more chains if 51 are not enough.

Row 1: Ch1, starting in the second loop from hook, 41 sc. The length of the last 10 unworked chain must measure 7 cm. You can have more or less unworked stitches, the only condition is to have the number of stitches be divisible by 2. In my case it is 10. After that make 5 sl st. Turn

Row 2: Ch 1, 5 sl st blo, 41 sc blo. Crochet the very last stitch through both loops (front and back) each even row. We do it to make the hat’s edge less elastic and springy. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, 41 sc blo, 5 sl st blo, 5 sl st, turn.

Row 4: Ch1, 10 sl st blo, 41 sc blo. Do not forget to crochet the very last stitch through both loops.

Repeat Rows 1-4 until your hat measures desired width. Finish crocheting with row 3. For head circumference of 57-58 cm I have crocheted 46 cm.

Sewing edges of the crochet ribbed hat

Sew 2 sides together making back seam of the hat. Insert the hook underneath the chain of the first row of the fabric that is closest to you and through the back loop on the other side, yarn over and pull it through both loops and stitch on the hook. Slip stitch those two edges together till the very bottom. Weave in ends.

Now take a yarn needle and thread new tail to close the top. Insert needle back and forth around the top, then pull the yarn tight to close hole. Fasten off and weave in ends.

I like this pattern because it doesn’t have all the gathers at the top. It would be helpful to have the instructions include directions for the last and turning stitches to keep from adding stitches to the rows. I accidentally added up to 4 stitches before I noticed it.

Hi Caryn. Yeah you are right. Once I did the same and added one more extra stitch))))) I will think how can i better do it. Thank you

The wool I am looking at to make this hat comes in 104 yd skeins. Is one skein enough?

Knitting Guru 1st January 2022 at 17:40

per 100 grams or 50 grams ball? if it is 100 grams then you will need to chain less stitches

Do you by chance have measurements for making the hat if you want to make for children? Like, instead of 7 cm, how much do you need?

Thank you

If the child is 10+ years, do it the same as for an adult, otherwise make 2 cm less

Am I repeating rows 1-4 or rows rows 3-4? The picture looks like the brim has the same number of rows as the hat but if I miss the last 5 stitches every repeat it’ll end up shorter? Thanks

Hi, Repeat Rows 1-4. Check the video tutorial if something is unclear

KELLY SNIDER 24th May 2022 at 07:01

I couldn’t close the top no matter how hard I pulled. The slip stitches were obviously too tight. 🙁 I ended up adding a couple rows of sc along there and then it closed but it was very, very firm there – I used worsted weight yarn because I couldn’t find wool in the color my husband wanted. Not sure if my stitches were too tight or if it was the yarn, but loved the hat otherwise.

Knitting Guru 24th May 2022 at 09:36

Hi Kelly. You are right it happens, and it depends on yarn and how close every time you insert needle. Next time try to make bigger distance between stitches (while inserting needle back and forth)

This is a great free crochet hat pattern! I love the ribbed pattern.

Hi I’m completely new to crocheting hats and this is so easy to understand ! the only thing I am confused on is what size I should crochet to when the head circumference is 59cm? Do I do it 59 cm or smaller?

Ann 1st November 2022 at 17:22

Hi Abbie, I usually crochet 10-12 cm less than head circumference. But everything depends on yarn too

Stephanie 4th January 2023 at 15:14

Is anybody else making a diagonal crocheted piece? Because of the “starting from 2nd loop” on Row 1, I end up going one stitch longer each time I work Row 1. Stitch count stays the same, but every row 1 is started one stitch later, making my final hat piece before stitching the seam look diagonal.

maybe video will help you. you can use play back speed button to slow it down
