This month for our Crochet Along, I am sharing my 2021 Sweet Serenity Hat Pattern. This project features soft bobble stitches and it matches last week’s scarf perfectly.

This pretty hat is crocheted back and forth in rows before being seamed into the finished hat.

My 2021 Sweet Serenity Hat Pattern is available in 5 sizes, small child (age 3-5 years), child (age 6-10 years), teen, adult (medium) and adult (large).

This hat is worked flat, back and forth in rows. This stitch pattern is made up of bobbles (basically a dc5tog in one stitch), half double crochet stitches and double crochet stitches. The brim is made up of front post half double crochet and back post half double crochet stitches. Once complete we seam the side edge and close up the top.

Notes:

Stitch multiple of 3. Plus 2 for the starting chain.

When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.

An initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc. This means you do not work into the stitch directly beneath it because it is taking the place of the stitch that would have been worked there.

When finishing, you may substitute a sl st to join for the invisible join.

Finishing Instructions for All Hat Sizes:

On a flat surface, fold your project in half widthwise; bringing the two side edges together. Thread your yarn end on a yarn needle and work through both layers; whipstitch (view tutorial here) once for each row along the edge. I work under one loop of the stitch on each edge. 

Once you have finished whipstitching the side edge and you reach the foundation row, we will be closing the top of the hat using my simple closing method. This method is demonstrated here.

There may be a small hole remaining at the top of the hat for the larger sizes. I used the remaining yarn on my yarn needle to sew four stitches (across the diameter of the hole) to close the small gap that remained after closing the top. If you prefer, you may use a pom pom to hide the small hole.

Weave in any remaining ends securely.
