Autumn hat…

Posted on Updated on

Here’s a cute and easy autumnal hat to make for yourself or a loved one… you all know how much I love the humble granny, so here is a hat version!

Autumn crochet hat free patternJust right for the changing seasons, not too warm – you could even make it in cotton for spring.

Crochet Autumn Hat Pattern:

This pattern will make a hat that is big enough for a child (there’s a fair bit of stretch in them, I can fit it but its a bit on the snug side) so if you want to make one for an adult Id suggest adding another hdc in the first round. Alternatively you could stick with the pattern and use a heavier yarn and larger hook.

8ply (DK) weight yarn and 3 or 3.5mm hook.

Round 1. Make a magic circle and chain (ch) 3, half double crochet (hdc), ch1  7 tiimes and join with a ss to the 2nd ch at the beginning to close the round. 8 hdc with ch1 spaces.

Round 2. Ch2, *double crochet (dc) x 2 , ch1 into next ch1 space*, repeat between * and * 7 times, 1dc into last space, join with ss to top of ch 2. 8 2dc pairs with ch1 spaces.

Round 3. Ss into the next ch 1 space, ch2 and dc into same space, ch1, 2dc and ch 1 into each space around (between each dc AND in each ch1 space). Join with ss to top of ch2. 16 2dc pairs with ch1 spaces.

Round 4. Ss into the next ch 1space, chain 2 and dc into same space, ch 2. 2dc and ch2 into each ch1 space around. Join with a ss to finish the round. 16 2dc pairs separated by ch2 spaces.

Round 5. Ss into the next ch2 space. Chain 2, 2 dc into same space, ch2. 3dc and ch2 into each ch 2 space around. Join with a ss to finish the round. 16 3dc groups separated by ch2 spaces.

Round 6 – 14. Repeat round 5 nine more times and try on head to see if it’s almost long enough (still the band to go so it will be about 2cm longer when completed). Once you are happy with the length Ch1 and single crochet into each stitch around and 2sc into each 2ch space, do not join the round with a ss, but continue working in rounds until 4 rounds are completed and join with a ss to finish the final round.  Weave in all ends.

Make a flower and sew in place. I used this one adding an extra round of petals, but any flower of your choice is bound to look lovely.

As always please let me know if you find any mistakes, and I would love to see a photo if you make one! Jxx

    I love grey too!!! I used to think it was a “boring” colour, but now I think it is the most versatile neutral…and it is “in fashion”. Lovely hat.

    Hi, Janette. I wanted to let you know that I mentioned you in my blog. I made a granny hat, but made some modifications to my pattern based on yours. (I wanted the hat to be lacy from the top down, but my pattern is closed on the top. Yest, I stil used the rib border, as mine).
    You can check it here:

    Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your patterns.

    Hello, I’m from Spain. I started to follow you two weeks ago. First thank you for sharing your creativity. I’m a very begginer crocheter and I love your patterns. I have three kids one boy(7) and two girls (4 & 2). Maia’s desings looks pretty on my four years old. I’m making one of your autumn spring hat for my girl but I would like to make one for me. Can you help me to know where and how I have to increase the circle before start to go down with the hat? Is there any pattern that will help me?
    Thank you very much and sorry my english

    This reminds me of the hat Ali McGraw wore in “Love Story.” I had one similar to it and now I have to make this one. Thanks!

    Reblogged this on Kaza's creations and commented:
    Now I will be disciplined and finish my UFO’s (unfinished objects) before making this but wouldn’t this hat match an Irish crochet poncho for a little girl beautifully?

Thank you for leaving a comment I love reading them and really appreciate you taking the time to let me know you were here!
