Here’s how it works.

It’s time for my free pattern contribution for the Holiday Stashdown CAL. The Bulky Hat pattern is a beginner-friendly pattern which you can make in a couple different sizes.  Visit this post for my Medium Weight Hat Worked Flat free crochet pattern. This crochet hat is worked flat, back-and-forth in rows and the only stitches you need to know how to crochet are chains, single crochet stitches and slip stitches. Video Tutorials are available for both the first section of the hat and the assembly instructions.

The Bulky Hat Pattern

Premier Puzzle Yarn - Free Crochet Pattern Using this Yarn is available at Oombawka Design Crochet

The yarn I used to make these hats was given to me by Premier® Yarns. It is beautifully soft, 100% acrylic and Oeko-Tex Certified (Tested for more than 350 harmful substances) so super safe to use for chemo caps and baby items. Your finished items are machine washable in cold water: permanent press and dry-able:  tumble dry-normal-low heat. Each ball of Premier Puzzle Yarn is created using 4 coordinating colors which created a beautiful striped effect. There are 12 different color options currently available in PREMIER® PUZZLE™ YARN and when I checked their site just now I’ve noticed it is currently on sale for 2 balls for $10.00*. The regular price is $7.99*/ball.  (*prices subject to change). Remember when you order to enter code: RM001

I used less than 1 ball of yarn to make both hats and I still have a bit more leftover.

The Adult Size Hat uses: 88 g (3.08 oz), 144 yds (132 m) of Bulky Weight [5] Yarn

The Child Size Hat uses: 62 g (2.17 oz), 101.68 yds (93 m) of Bulky Weight [5] Yarn

Notes

  • This is a very EASY pattern but you do need to pay attention at the end of the rows, at the top end of the hat.
  • The “Work 1 sc in the last sc.” is worked as a regular single crochet stitch under both loops of the stitch. All the other stitches are worked in the BL only of the stitches.

Repeat the instructions for Segment 2, 6 more times to complete the hat. Then proceed to the Assembly Instructions below.

Assembly

Finish off leaving a long tail of yarn to allow you to whip-stitch the final seam of the hat and close the top small hole of the hat.

When you are whip-stitching the hat, work in the BL of the stitches and the leftover chain loop from the beginning R1 of the hat. Each stitch will have a matching chain all the way to the top of the hat.

Once you get to the top of the hat you will be using your yarn needle and yarn end to weave back and forth through the row ends (under one loop of the row end stitch only) all the way around the center opening. Once you reach the seam, pull snugly to close the hat top completely. You can view this photo tutorial >CLICK HERE< for help.

  1. Hi, Rhonda. I know I’m commenting on an older post but I LOVE this bulky, side to side pattern with a shaped crown. It works up really quick and looks great. I was wondering if you ever completed the patern using medium weight yarn as you noted in the first paragraph that you were working on. I wasn’t able to find it on your website. Thanks so much for all your patterns, you are always my first blogger to look to for crochet patterns.

  2. I am trying to make the man’s hat. Does it actually work out or am I doing something totally stupid? Why are there so many left over stitches at the beginning of the 2nd segment?

  3. Thank you so much for this pattern and tutorial. It is definitely now included for people on my Christmas gift list.
