Here we go, it’s the pattern for the Camel Stitch hat that I’ve been sharing over the last few weeks.
I used the lovely Scheepjes Colour Crafter premium acrylic, which makes a wonderful hat. It’s soft, warm, hard wearing and comes in about a million colours.
Scheepjes Colour Crafter, 1 ball of lilac – 1082 Zwolle (colour 1)
Scheepjes Colour Crafter, 1 ball of neon pink – 1257 Hilversum (colour 2)
Large pompom maker (or cardboard rings cut to size)
8mm crochet hook
You’ll need to be able to get the yarn for this of course. Depending on where you live there is a stockist for you.
In the Benelux, check this enormous list here. Wool Warehouse* ships all over the planet. In the US Deramores* and Paradise Fibers also have you covered and in South Africa go to my friends at Be Inspired.

This project is worked in the round, with no joining at the end of each round.
We will also be working with the yarn triple stranded. A video of the technique can be found here:
Round 1 9 Hdc into a magic ring (9).
Round 2 Inc in each stitch around (18).
Round 3 *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next.* Repeat 8 times (27)
Round 4 *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next 2 stitches.* Repeat 8 times (36)
Round 5 *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next 8 stitches.* Repeat 3 times (40)
Round 6 Child *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next 9 stitches.* Repeat 3 times (44)
Round 6 Adult Hdc3blo in the next 5 stitches, *inc, Hdc3blo in the next 9 stitches.*Repeat 3 times, Inc, HDC3blo in the last 4 stitches.
Round 7 *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next 10 stitches.* Repeat 3 times (48)
For the child size, stop increasing here and skip to round 11.
Round 8 Hdc3blo in the next 6 stitches, *Inc, Hdc3blo in the next 11 stitches.* Repeat 3 times, Hdc3blo in the last 5 stitches (52)
Round 9 *Inc in the first stitch, Hdc3blo in the next 12 stitches.* Repeat 3 times (56)
Round 10-19 Hdc3blo around (60). Attach colour 2 to continue around.
For extra slouchiness, add a couple more rounds before starting the visor. However, for the adult size, there will be minimal yarn left, so feel free to just use it all and then start the visor.
Round 20 Sc3blo in the next 18 sts (the next 23 stitches for the adult size.). Hdc3blo in the around to where the sc round in colour 2 begins (the next 34). CH2, turn.
Round 21 Hdc3flo in the first and next 33 sts (the HDC sts from the previous round). CH2, turn.
Round 22 hdc3blo in the next 34 sts. CH2, turn.
Round 23 hdc3flo in the next 34 sts.
Round 24 CH20, Sc in the 2nd and next 17 CH sts. Continue Sc3flo in the next 34 sts. CH20. Sc in the 2nd and next 17 CH sts. Work 3 sc down the side of the visor and sc in each or the 18 Sc3blo sts from round 21. Work 3 sc into the side of the visor, and ss to join to base of the chain cord.
Make the pompom and attach to the top of the hat.
