Ametrine Button Hat Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Not only does the Ametrine Button Hat match last week’s scarf design, it also uses up the rest of last week’s ball of yarn! This hat pattern is very easy to crochet and it is worked from the hat band to the crown of the head.

If you prefer a hat and scarf combo to a hooded scarf, last week’s Ametrine Hooded Pocket Scarf is extremely easy to make into a regular pocket scarf! Just omit the hood section of the pattern all together and you have the Ametrine Pocket Scarf.

Notes:

When I work into the foundation ch sts, I work into the back bump of the stitch. You may work under the bl of the ch sts if you prefer.

Beginning in Rnd 4 the initial ch 3 does not count as a stitch. This means you will work 1 dc in the same st as the ch 3. 

Ametrine Button Hat Pattern Instructions

We begin making this hat, back and forth in rows. Then we rejoin in the back of the hat and continue to crochet the hat in joined rounds.

With your 5.5 mm (I) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving a 6 to 8 inch tail of yarn:

R1: Ch 67, sk 1 ch, 1 sc in each rem ch across, turn. [66 sc]

R2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each st across, turn. [66 dc]

R3: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each st across. Sl st to the 7th dc to join. Finish off.

Tutorial 7th stitch join. Ametrine Button Hat Pattern.

The 6 skipped dc section is the front tab closure for the hat. We will connect this to the main hat and add a button in the finishing section.

Place your hat on a flat surface and rejoin your yarn with a sl st, in any st near the back middle of the hat (approximately 30 sts from the slip stitch).

Rejoin mid back with sl st. Ametrine Button Hat Pattern.
Tutorial – Rejoin mid-back. Approximately 30 sts from the join made in the 7th dc (R3).

From this point on, we will be working in joined rounds. When you reach the sl st where you joined at the end of R3 work your dc over top of it (so work into the dc it is in).

Rnd 4: Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch), 1 dc in each st around. Sl st to the first dc to join. [60 dc]

Rnd 5 – Rnd 13: Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch), 1 dc in each st around. Sl st to the first dc to join. [60 dc]

Rnd 14: Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch). *Dc2tog, 1 dc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** around. Sl st to the first dc to join. [40 dc]

Rnd 15: Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch). Dc2tog around. Sl st to the first dc to join. [20 dc]

Rnd 16: Ch 3 (does not count as a stitch). Dc2tog around. Sl st to the first dc to join. Finish off leaving an 8-10 inch tail of yarn. [10 dc]

Finishing Instructions:

To close the top of your hat, follow my simple closing method (tutorial)

Place your yarn on your yarn needle and weave it back and forth under the front loop of each of the last 10 sts. Pull to tighten and weave it securely into the sts on the inside of the hat.

With the initial yarn tail, whipstitch to the 7th stitch on the flap. Finish off and weave in the end.

This video for my Awareness Ribbon Hat is set to start at the part where I use a whipstitch seam to close the band. If you prefer watching a quick bit of this video it will demonstrate the technique for you. For the Ametrine Hat you only need to whipstitch a few times in the 7th stitch.

Tutorial – Join in 7th st with whipstitch

Place a piece of yarn (6 to 8 inches) on your yarn needle (which will fit through the button holes of your selected button) and attach the button near the end of the little tab you created in R3. My button is approximately 1-inch in diameter. I only attached the flap to the hat beneath the button and I left the remaining flap free. Finish off and weave in both ends.

Weave in any remaining ends.

  1. Hi Merry, I’ve added a note to the Finished Size section for you to help you make the Toddler or Child Size hat. This is the note:
    Toddler Hat (age 3-5 years) to fit 20-inch head circumference begin by chaining 60 sts. When you rejoin your yarn after R3 you will count over approximately 26 sts. Follow the pattern as written until R9 then proceed to R14-R16. Hat height will be approximately 7.5 inches.
    Child Hat (age 6-10 years) to fit 21-inch head circumference begin by chaining 63 sts. When you rejoin your yarn after R3 you will count over approximately 28 sts. Follow the pattern as written until R10 then proceed to R14-R16. Hat height will be approximately 8 inches.

    Hope this helps!
    Best wishes,
    Rhondda

  3. Um, Ravelry says the Ametrine button hat is no longer available when you click on the link and add the coupon code . So, you can’t get it.
    Help please and thanks in advance.
    Thanks for doing the scarf and hat club also, I always look forward to it 🥰

  4. The coupon code doesn’t work on Ravelry. It’s supposed to work until the 26th. It’s still the 25th. Cute hat though!

  5. Hi. I went to try to get the hat on ravelry, but it shows up as no longer available. There is no way to add it to the cart.

  6. It says pattern no longer available whenever try to download…

  7. Hi! There seems to be no purchase button in Ravelry so even using your drag link with the coupon code makes Ravelry think there’s nothing in the cart.
