Rustic Crochet Hat (Free Pattern)

A while back I was shopping at my local Michaels’ store I discovered a really beautiful variegated yarn.  It was pretty enough that my mom, sister, and I all loved the way it look.  I picked up two skeins and decided on making a small cowl and a hat.  I’ve managed to sell three of these hats and cowls.  Two of the three were sold together.

Loops & Threads Charisma Yarn: Mulberry

If you don’t feel like making your own hat and cowl, feel free to check out my listings on Etsy.  I currently have both the hat and the cowl available to purchase.  (Hat link/Cowl link)

Both the hat and the cowl were designed by me and I’ve decided to share the hat pattern with you today.  It was one of my earliest designs and I hope you like it!





Rustic Crochet Hat

Skill Level:  Easy
Sizing:  Hat ends up being about 8 inches tall with about a 22 inch circumference.  (The hat is a bit stretchy so it should fit a larger circumference as well.)


  • K/10 Crochet hook. (6.5mm) – I used Susan Bates Luxite Crochet Hook (US Amazon/CAD Amazon)
  • Yarn/Tapestry needle – I used Boye (CAD Michaels) but any needle that you can fit the yarn in should work!
  • 1 Ball of Charisma by Loops & Threads – I used the colour Mulberry. (US Michaels/No CAD Michaels link but is found in Canadian stores.  Loops & Threads is a Michaels’ brand yarn)
  • Yardage: I’m not sure how much was used but it was just a little less than 1 ball of yarn.

About Charisma Yarn by Loops & Threads:
100% Acrylic Yarn, Super Bulky 5
3.5 oz. skein/ 109 yds

Special note about yarn:  Most Charisma yarn recommends an 8mm crochet hook.  The Mulberry label usually shows 6.5mm crochet hook but sometimes shows an 8mm hook.  I used a 6.5mm hook.  If you use a different colour you can still use the 6.5mm hook but make sure to crochet a bit tighter to adjust for this.  Your item will be a bit bulkier but will be close to the same measurements.  I’ve used other colours that list an 8mm hook and used the 6.5mm hook and it has turned out just as nicely. 🙂

Stitches used:

  • Magic Ring (Tutorial Here)
  • CH (Chain)
  • sl st (Slip Stitch)
  • dc (Double Crochet)
  • back loop double crochet (BLdc)


After making your first 3 rows the circumference should measure about 4 inches – 4 1/4 inches.
5 DC= approximately 2 inches
1 DC height = approximately 3/4 inch or a little less.

Please note: I actually sold the hat that had the slightly thinner yarn before measuring gauge.  I’ve used the measurements for a hat made with the slightly thicker yarn using a 6.5mm crochet hook so if your gauge is a bit smaller than what I state it should still work ok.


  1. The starting chain counts as a DC.
  2. Hat is worked in the round.
  3. This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.


Foundation: Create a magic ring. OR you can CH 3 then sl st into the first chain. (this will leave a small hole at the top so the magic ring is a better option)
Row 1: CH 3, 11 dc.  Sl st to join. (12 dc)  Pull magic ring tightly closed.
Row 2: CH 3, 1 BLdc in same stitch, 2 BLdc in every other stitch. Sl st to join (24 dc)
Row 3: CH 3, *2 BLdc in the next stitch, 1 BLdc in the next stitch* repeat * until end. Sl st to join (36 dc)
Row 4: CH 3, *2 BLdc in the next stitch, 1 BLdc in each of the next 3 stitches.*  Repeat * until end (last set is only 2 BLdc in one stitch and 1 BLdc in each of the next 2 stitches). Sl st to join (45 dc)
Row 5: CH 3, 1 BLdc in each stitch. Sl st to join (45 dc)
Row 6-11: Repeat row 5.  Finish off and sew in the ends.

And there it is!  Another simple crochet hat to keep you warm in winter.  Of course you can always add more rows if you wish to make it longer.  I hope you enjoy this pattern and happy crocheting!
