Close the top of the hat using the yarn you left at the very beginning. Thread your yarn on your yarn needle and weave it, in and out, under the FL of each of the initial chs. Do this all the way around the top of the hat.

Simple Closing Method Tutorial

Pull firmly to tighten and close the hole completely and then weave in your yarn end securely so the opening does not reopen.

Weave in any remaining ends.

Add a pom pom to the top if you wish.

  1. First of all, I love the name of this hat. It really applies to anything that keeps repeating. I have had this on my list to make for some times, along with a few other hat patterns of yours. I love that you have a photo tutorial, the written patten and stitch counts at the end of the row. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us Rhondda.

  2. Hi Rhonda,

    Thank you for the pattern , if I am using acrylic yarn or Caron cake, How do I work out the starting chain

  3. Hi Michelle, First I want to apologize. I found a couple errors in my pattern when I went back to take the photos. I’ve updated the instructions and made a few changes (to hopefully make it easier to follow) and put the extra photos at the end of the post. Let me know how it goes with the changes please and thank you for reaching out – I’d have never have known there was an issue!! All the best, Rhondda

    P.S. The for sale version is the same as my free version – I offer it for convenience only for the pattern as some crocheters don’t like visiting websites for the patterns because of the sidebar ads.

  4. I absolutely LOVE the look of this hat, but after 2 hours of trying, I can’t get past the first 2 rounds of the adult hat. The amount of stitches doesn’t seem to work out for me once I slip stitch to join and turn, i.e., I end up with too many DC, and the ch1sp is not evenly spaced. I’m fairly new to making hats, so it may be that I’m not following/understanding the pattern correctly… Is there by any chance a video or photo tutorial anywhere? 🙁 I am hesitant to purchase the pattern since it may just be the same written instructions minus the ads which wouldn’t help. Thanks for any advice or suggestions you may have for this stunning crochet hat pattern. 🙂

  5. I’m always looking for patterns. This one looks so cute. I’ll e joy making it.
