The Felicity Hat Pattern was designed to go with this month’s Scarf of the Month Club Scarf.
I fell in love with the Colorscape Yarn in Paris and when I was making the scarf I decided I just had to have a hat using this yarn and stitch pattern too. You will need 1 ball of Colorscape Yarn for the hat and 1 ball for the scarf.
The hat I have been wearing these last 2 winters was damaged over the summer (Drew and his darn silly putty!) so one of the things I knew I needed to make before this winter, was a new hat for me. This is my new winter hat 🙂
I hope you love it as much as I do! I have included instructions to resize it larger and smaller – in case this Teen/Adult Small/Medium hat won’t work for you. It is soft, cozy and fitted to the top of the head. I gave it a little extra poufiness (is that even a word?) at the top to mimic the slouchy look without the extra weight and fabric to pull the hat askew on my head.

Felicity Hat Pattern Instructions
- Yarn: Red Heart Colorscape Yarn. 3.5 oz / 100 g ; 187 yds / 171 m. Medium Weight  Yarn. 100% Acrylic. Machine Wash Cold, Gentle Cycle. Tumble Dry Low. Color: Paris
- Hook: 4 mm (G) and 5 mm (H) Crochet Hook (I used the hooks I bought from this shop on Etsy)
- Finished Project Yardage: 68 g / 128 yds
- Scissors, Yarn Needle, Stitch Marker
9 inches (stretches to 10 inches) in height
20 inches (flat surface) circumference. Stretches to 24 inches circumference.
This hat will fit Teen/Adult. (small-medium)
If you want a larger size hat, increase the band by 6 rows. This will give you 6 additional stitches and an additional 1.5-2 inches in size for the main hat. For additional height, repeat the R6-9 one additional time before moving to R10 in the instructions. This will add approximately 3 inches in height for you and make the hat more slouchy.
For a smaller size hat (child/toddler), stop the band rows after row 60. Work a total of 60 dc for the first round in the body of the hat section and omit rounds 9 onward in the pattern. Work Round 9 as follows: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), *dc2tog over the next ch1sp and dc**. Rep from * to ** across. 1 dc in the last st. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join.  Then finish off and close the hat. This will make the hat approximately 6.5 to 7 inches in height.
approximately 16 dc in 4 inches
approximately 3 inches for each repeat section of R2 to R5
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size of your project will also be different.

You can watch the Invisible Join technique demonstrated in this video at this specific video frame: Invisible Join Video
- Ch 3 counts as 1 dc when worked at the beg of the row. This means you do not work into the dc that falls beneath it.
- Ch 4 counts as 1 dc and ch 1, when worked at the beg of the row. This means you do not work into the tr that falls beneath it.
- Sl st does not count as a stitch.
- the band is seamed at the end using a simple whipstitch
- Stitch Multiple: 6
Felicity Hat Pattern
The hat is crocheted from the ribbed band to the crown of the hat in one piece. We begin by crocheting the band, which is worked back and forth in rows. The extra 8-10 inches of yarn you leave at the beginning will be used to seam your hat band closed after you finish crocheting the hat.
With the smaller hook (4 mm [G]) and leaving an 8-10 inch tail of yarn:
R1: Ch 8, 1 sc in each ch across, ch 1, turn. 
R2-R66: 1 sc in the BL (back loop) of each st across, ch 1, turn. 
Rotate your work to crochet across the top of the band (the row edges). We are working the main body of the hat next, using the larger hook.
With the larger hook (5 mm [H])
R1: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each row end across (tip: work under one loop of yarn on the row ends). Sl st to the top of the ch 3 to join. TURN. 
R2: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1) and 1 dc in the first st, ch 2, sk 2 dc, *1 sc in the next dc, ch 2, sk 2 dc, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in the next dc, ch 2, sk 2 dc**. Rep from * to ** around to the last 3 sts. 1 sc in the next dc, ch 2, sk 2 dc. Sl st to the initial ch4sp to join. TURN. [22 dc, 1 ch1sp, 11 sc, 22 ch2sp]
R3: *Ch 1, sk ch2sp, sk 1 sc, sk ch2sp, sk 1 dc, (CL, ch 2, CL, ch 2, CL) in the next ch2sp, sk 1 dc**. Rep from * to ** around. Ch 1 and sl st to the initial ch1sp to join. TURN. [33 CL, 23 ch2sp, 1 ch1sp]
R4: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1), sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, ch 1, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, ch 1, sk CL, *1 dc in ch1sp, ch 1, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, ch 1, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, ch 1, sk CL**. Rep from * to ** around. Sl st to into the ch4sp to join. TURN. [33 dc, 34 ch1sp]
R5: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), *1 dc in ch1sp, 1 dc in the next dc**. Rep from * to ** around to the last ch1sp. 1 dc in the last ch1sp and sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. TURN. 
R6-R9: Rep R2 to R5
R10: Rep R2
R11: Rep R3
Hat Shaping Section (we are decreasing the hat to fit to the top of the head).
R12: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, sk CL, *1 dc in ch1sp, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, sk CL, 1 dc in ch2sp, sk CL**. Rep from * to ** around. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. TURN. 
R13: Ch 2, 1 dc in the first st. Dc2tog around. Sl st to the first dc to join (skipping over the intial ch 2). [17 dc] *note we are not counting the ch 2 as a stitch here*
Finish off leaving a 8-10 inch tail of yarn to weave in and close the top of the hat. I recommend closing it like this:
Using your remaining yarn end from the beginning of the band, whipstitch the two edges of the band together.
