To make my Bonny Hat you will need Chunky Weight Yarn [5] and both a 5 mm (H) crochet hook (for the hat band/brim) and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook for the hat body.

My Bonny Hat Pattern is available in sizes Toddler, small child (3-5 years), child (6-10 years), teen/adult and adult (large).

I designed this hat to reach the base of your earlobe and to have a little bit of slouch. It is tapered to fit the shape of your head and if you’d like to make it more slouchy it is very easy to do! Just work the repeat section on extra time to increase the hat height by about one inch.

The Yarn I used

For my Bonny Hat I used 3.3 oz (94 g) and 141 yds (130m) of Chunky Weight Yarn.

I loved working with the Chunky Tweed Yarn. It didn’t fluff, or pill as I worked and the colored flecks were well intigrated into the yarn. The yarn is warm and dense; perfect for fall and winter wearables. My stitch definition is looks good and the yarn compliments my stitches (it doesn’t overpower them) which to me is an added bonus because I wasn’t limited to the type of stitch I used for my project.

My finished hat is beautifully soft and warm and perfect for colder weather! I love the flecks of tweed that are sprinkled throughout the stitches. This yarn made a very pretty and durable crochet hat.

King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.

My finished hat is beautifully soft and warm and perfect for colder weather! I love the flecks of tweed that are sprinkled throughout the stitches. This yarn made a very pretty and durable crochet hat.

Chunky Tweed Yarn is a blend of 72% Premium Acrylic, 25% Wool and 3% Viscose.

Chunky Tweed Yarn is available in a pretty range of colors with multi-colored flecks. Along with bright jewel tone shades, there are a few soft pastel color options too.

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 6
  • The initial ch 3 counts as 1 dc.
  • The initial ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Shells are worked into the center of a single crochet. So instead of going under the top 2 loops, place your hook between the 2 legs of the stitch and under the loops.
  • When we slip stitch to join, we make it into the center of the sc.
  • We count the (Ch 3, 2 dc) from the beginning of a round, with the 2 dc at the end of the round as 1 shell, in the row end totals.
  • In the final round, the initial ch 2 + dc4tog = dc5tog.  
  • To add approximately 1 extra inch of hat height, work the REPEAT ROUNDS one extra time.
