Free Crochet Hat Patterns

Welcome! If you are looking for free crochet hat patterns, then you’ve landed in the right place!  This archive is dedicated to crochet hat patterns. You will find patterns for crochet beanies, earflap hats, animal hats, slouch hats, ski hats (balaclava hats), sunhats, bucket hats and toques.

I specialize in beginner friendly, easy crochet patterns.

Hats Can be Crocheted

  1. FLAT – making a hat in rows into a finished rectangle before seaming them into their final shape.
  2. TOP-DOWN – beginning at the crown of the head and working toward the brim
  3. BOTTOM-UP – beginning at the ribbed hat band and adding the body of the hat to the edge of the band. The hat can be worked in rounds, or in rows before being seamed.

Almost every crochet hat pattern on Oombawka Design is available in more than one size. In fact, most include sizes from baby to adult.

You will find baby hat patterns (preemie, newborn, 0-3 month, 3-6 month, 6-12 month and 12-24 month), hats for children (3-5 years and 6-10 years), hats for teens and adult hats (medium and large).

If you want to learn how to crochet a hat that fits, I recommend this detailed How to Crochet a Beanie that Fits guide.

I hope you enjoy your visit!
