Matchy Matchy Crochet Hat Free Pattern

Hey! 

So I told you that I have a quick hat in Namaste in the works, and last week I showed you a photo.  Today I have the pattern for you, and it’s so easy you can work it up in an hour or so, tops!

We have two sizes, the smaller is perfect for my almost 7 year old, and because it’s a stretchy yarn, it will fit smaller or bigger kids, and the other is to fit adults.  It’s a firm, warm fit on me, so slouchy for kids.  Again, the yarn has loads of give, so there are no problems with fit.

This pattern is written using UK crochet terms, but if you prefer US terminology, or would like to have a printer/e-reader friendly version of this pattern, it’s also available in my Ravelry store for a small fee.

Right, let’s get on with it!

What You’ll Need

1 skein Scheepjes Namaste in you choice of colour
8mm hook

Measurements

Two sizes: to fit child 5-10, and to fit older child and adult

Tension

Not important, but the adult size will use the entire skein. If you’re making both and want to make the adult longer, there will be plenty left over from the kid’s size.

Abbreviations

(UK Terms)
Ch chain stitch
Dc double crochet
Tr treble crochet
[…] repeat instructions between brackets the required number of times.
SS slip stitch
Fptr front post treble crochet
Bptr back post treble crochet

Notes

This is a granny stitch style hat, worked in rounds, slip stitching to join each round. The pattern outlines two sizes, the smaller will fit most children from about 5 years old and the larger size will fit teens through to adults.
Each size uses one skein of yarn, with plenty left over after the children’s size.

There you have it!

There are several places I can recommend you purchase the yarn, here are some of them: 

Wool Warehouse* and Deramores* ship internationally, Caro’s Atelier* has everything you need in the Benelux and Europe, Knotty House* stocks Namaste in North America (US and Canada), plus there are hundreds of great retailers all over the place who stock Scheepjes yarns. If they don’t have Namaste in stock, give them a friendly nudge 😉
