This month for our CAL, I am sharing the 2021 Whatever Will Be Will Be Hat pattern. This hat matches last week’s scarf pattern. If you like making sets, visit this post for free scarf pattern: 2021 Whatever Will Be Will Be Scarf

The 2021 Whatever Will Be Will Be Hat is available in 4 sizes, small child (age 3-5 years), child (age 6-10 years), teen and adult.

This crochet hat pattern has a bit of slouch built into the design but if you want a beanie instead, simply omit 4 rows of the repeat section to decrease the hat height by an inch. This will give you a more fitted hat.

The Whatever Will Be Will Be Hat is worked flat, back and forth in rows. Once complete we seam the side edge and close up the top. This is a beginner friendly hat pattern.

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple is 3+2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • If you would like a longer scarf, simply repeat R2 to your desired length before adding the single crochet edging.


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.

Finishing Instructions:

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.

Weave in any remaining ends securely.
