Catrin Hat Pattern

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

My Catrin Hat is a beautifully light-weight project that is crocheted with 4-ply yarn and a 3.75 mm (F) crochet hook. The Catrin Hat pattern is available for free in 4-sizes.

This simple project is crocheted from the bottom, up to the top in one-piece.

First we begin with the hat band which is crocheted back and forth in rows, using single crochet stitches (sc) worked in the back loop only (blo). Next we crochet the body of the hat; it is crocheted right into the row-ends from the hat band. We work the body of the hat in joined, turned rounds. After we reach the hat height for our project, we finish off the yarn and close the top of the hat; then seam the hat band shut using a whipstitch seam.

From beginning to end this hat is an easy crochet project. It is relaxing to crochet and the texture of the hat is created with a one-row repeat, using only single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) stitches.

The Yarn

The Finest, British, Blue Faced Leicester wool and Afghan cashmere are the perfect match to give a beautiful softness. Part of the KC Collection, Naturally Soft 4ply is designed around the concept of sustainability and moving toward a cleaner world together.

90% Blue Faced Leicester Wool / 10% Afghan Cashmere

Bluefaced Leicester Wool is the finest, softest and most lustrous 100% British wool which means it can be worn next to the skin. The wool has a light carbon footprint, bought in Bradford, spun, dyed and distributed all from Yorkshire. Fleece to yarn, all within 50 miles! The ability to fully trace the yarn from sheep to hand allows a transparent and honest
provenance.

Afghan Cashmere – Afghanistan is the world’s 3rd largest producer of cashmere. There are several world beating cashmere initiatives that provide goat herders with training on sustainable farming, harvesting techniques and animal welfare practices, helping them to achieve higher quality cashmere.

King Cole, Ltd.

The yarn I used for this project was given to me by King Cole, Ltd. It is called KC Naturally Soft 4ply. It contains 90% Blue Faced Leicester Wool and 10% Afghan Cashmere. The finished product is beautifully soft and as part of the KC Collection, it has been “designed around the concept of sustainability and moving toward a cleaner world together”.

It comes in 10 pretty shades: Winter White (6029), Platinum (6021), Granite (6020), Latte (6028), Evergreen (6022), Sunset (6027), Burnt Orange (6026), Mulberry (6025), Teal (6024) and Midnight Blue (6023).

Each hank of Naturally Soft contains 50 grams and 190 m / 207 yds.

The KC Collection is designed with sustainability in mind, sourcing the finest fibres and working with the best spinners in the world to craft exceptional quality, environmentally responsible yarn.

My Review of the Yarn

I have never crocheted with a yarn like KC Naturally Soft before. If you are searching for a meaningful yarn for a project, then KC Naturally Soft 4ply should be on your list. It is environmentally responsible yarn and it is beautiful to work with. There were no ties or blips in my yarn – none – from start to finish this yarn crocheted with ease. It didn’t fluff or pill and my stitches look exquisite (if I do say so myself).

It took me much longer to crochet this hat than I normally take to make a crochet hat, only because it is 4ply yarn. There were a lot more stitches to make with a finer yarn but it was so worth it! My hands didn’t tire as quickly using a lighter weight yarn either (this is a surprise to me). I had never considered that making smaller stitches equals making smaller hand movements for every stitch. Along with my trusty ergonomic hook, it was a pleasure to make these hats from start to finish.

My daughter has already claimed the first hat I made (teen size in Platinum) and the second hat (adult size in Teal) is all mine. I will not part with it. It is extremely light on the head and easy to wear. It just sits perfectly were I put it and looks like it was meant to be there.

I acknowledge that this hat would be the perfect gift, but I am going to tuck it away for myself for this upcoming fall and winter. I will just need to crochet another hat for someone else if asked!

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Multiple of 2
  • Slip stitch (sl st) to join does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it. Make your slip stitches tightly.
  • To make your Catrin hat more slouchy, add 6 additional rounds for every additional inch of height you would like to add.
  • To make this hat smaller you can easily make your hat band with fewer rows. For the pattern repeat to work successfully you will need a number of hat band rows that you can divide evenly by 2. 
  • If you are using this stitch for a different project, the multiple is 2 + 1 for the turning chain.

Finishing Instructions for all Catrin Hat Pattern sizes:

  • Using the yarn tail you left at the end of the project, close the top of the hat using my simple closing method. This method is demonstrated here. If you prefer you can watch a video tutorial here.
  • Using the yarn tail you left at the beginning of the project, seam the hat band closed using a whipstitch seam.
  • There may be a small hole remaining at the top of the hat for the larger sizes. I used the remaining yarn on my yarn needle to sew four stitches (across the diameter of the hole) to close the small gap that remained after closing the top. If you prefer, you may use a pom-pom to hide the small hole.
  • Weave in any remaining ends securely.
