This month for our Crochet Along, I am sharing my Cold Weather Crochet Hat Pattern. This warm crochet beanie pattern follows a very simple crochet stitch repeat, created with front post double crochet (FPdc) and back post double crochet (BPdc) stitches.

I’ve used this stitch before for some of my designs and I love the woven texture it creates. The stitch is known as the Rice Stitch.

Cold Weather Hat Pattern is available in baby to adult sizes for free. This warm crochet beanie pattern follows a very simple crochet stitch repeat, created with front post double crochet (FPdc) and back post double crochet (BPdc) stitches.

To make my Cold Weather Hat you will need Chunky Weight Yarn [5] and a 7 mm (L) crochet hook.

  1. Hi Julia, There was an issue in my Ravelry account. The PDF duplicated itself – so it was in the shop 2x somehow but only 1 of them linked to the actual Ravelry page. So the discount was added (I could see it) but it wasn’t working when we clicked through the Ravelry page itself (because it was somehow linked to the duplicate pdf that didn’t have the discount applied to it). I finally figure out why it wasn’t working (basically deleted everything and restarted) and it was fixed by 11pm Sunday night. Let me know if you weren’t able to get the pattern. All the best, Rhondda
