Felicity Crochet Hat Pattern

Here’s how it works.

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

Supplies

Difficulty Level

Easy-Intermediate

Finished Size

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. [16] Then finish off and close the hat. This will make the hat approximately 6.5 to 7 inches in height.

Gauge

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.

Felicity Hat and Scarf Pattern Set. Oombawka Design Crochet

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. [7]

R2-R66: 1 sc in the BL (back loop) of each st across, ch 1, turn. [7]

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. [66]

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]

Felicity Hat Round 3 Oombawka Design Crochet

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. [66]

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. [33]

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:

Simple Closing Method for Hats and Mittens

Using your remaining yarn end from the beginning of the band, whipstitch the two edges of the band together.

  1. Hi Kathy, The stitch pattern for Felicity works on a repeat of 6 stitches. You will need to make sure once you reach your hat band length that you have a number of rows divisible by 6 (or you can fudge to make them divisible by 6). Hope this helps 🙂 Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  2. First of all, thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. I’ve chosen it as my 1st crochet project because I need something that will motivate me. I’m still working on part 1 (the band), and have 66 rows, but it’s not 20 inches long (more like 12). So, I think I used a yarn that was too thin (I had it from years ago and didn’t have the info on it). I’m using a 4mm needle, so it’s not as tight as yours, but it’s not terrible. Please could you tell me how many “proportional” stitches I’ll need to have to reach 20 cm? I mean, I’ll continue knitting until it’s around 20 cm, but should it be divisible by 6? 10? 4? I just want to know so that when I stitch the rest, it looks symmetrical all the way around like yours. Thank you again.

  3. Hi Lisa, I’m working on a video right now 🙂 I’m hoping to have it ready by next week. All the best, Rhondda

  4. Hi Rhondda,

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern. If you can post a video of this hat it would be very helpful. I don’t understand after row 2, the stitches are increased to 66 right away in row 1 with the big hook. Can you explain or show me how does that work? Thanks!

  5. Hi Kelly 🙂 I will try to do a video tutorial for it tonight and post it later tomorrow. It probably will be the easiest way to help. Talk soon, Rhondda

  6. Hi Rhondda,

    I found your pattern for this hat and scarf set and was excited to start working on it but I’m a bit confused at round 3 of the body of the hat.

    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, sk ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** around. Sl st to the initial ch1sp to join. TURN. [33 CL, 23 ch2sp, 1 ch1sp]

    OK, chain 1… and then skip all the way over to work the cluster stitch?
    Could you clarify this for me please?

    Thank you so much!
    Kelly

  7. Hi Gwen, Thank you for letting me know! It was a typo – it definitely should have been 1 ch1sp! not 11. Thank you so much for letting me know so I could correct it 🙂 I hope you love your finished hat! Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  8. Hi Rhondda,

    I have found a possible error in the pattern. Row 2 of the main body of the hat has a count of 11 ch1sp.
    I only see instruction to make ch2.

    Is this an error or a typo?

    “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. Sl st to the initial ch4sp to join. TURN. [22 dc, 11 ch1sp, 11 sc, 22 ch2sp]”

    Thank you for the lovely pattern. I just started it today.

    Gwen

  9. After row 66 of the brim, do you slip stitch the two ends? Is there a best method for this?

  10. Hi Deb! Sorry about that!! I’ve updated it today for you. Thank you for the reminder 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  11. Beautiful hat and scarf! The link in this blog to add the hat to Ravelry is not working. I also cannot find the hat on Ravelry.

  12. Hi Rhondda, Thank you so much for this Hat and scarf patterns. I can’t wait to make them. Your website is really nice. I signed up to receive your newsletter and patterns. I will be looking forward to reading them. God Bless you, Jacquie
