Just My Style Hat Pattern

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

Just My Style Hat pattern is an easy free crochet hat pattern available in 10 sizes. The hat pictured is a child size hat (sized to fit approximately 7-10 years) but my son Drew wanted to join in for the photo shoot so you will see him sporting this hat himself – he has just turned 6. It is a tiny bit too big for him still but you will also see Darla wearing it in another photo and it fits nicely. She is almost 8 years old now (2 more weeks!) – these last few years feel like they have flown by! The hat is crocheted in a simple repeat pattern of double crochet stitches. I have included instructions to allow you to make this hat in two different lengths but you can easily size it to fit – any head size or height. The stitch pattern repeat is made up of sets of 4 stitches. You can increase and decrease the height easily – 2 rounds of double crochet are approximately 1 inch. The final edging rounds (4 rounds of single crochet) total 1 inch as well.

  1. Hi Paula, I do not have that pattern as a booklet yet but if you click the Print button at the top of the post you can create a PDF copy of it 🙂 Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. Hi I wanted to trY all the hats you have here, is there a book or leaflet I can purchase instead of printing all the pages?
    Thank you

  3. knitting a wool hat for your loved one by yourself is very meaningful! Thank you for the very detailed instructions.

  4. Hi Rhoda, I apologize! I will add that to the abbreviations section. BL is back loop. All the best, Rhondda

  5. What does BL mean in row 10? I don’t see it explained anywhere in the pattern.

  6. Oh Good!! Thanks 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions – I try to get back to everyone as quickly as I can!! Have a great rest of the day! R

  7. Hi Elaine, You make the Magic Ring, then chain 3. Then make 12 double crochets. That initial chain 3 is not being counted as a stitch, we are using it just to build up the height of the yarn to allow you to begin double crocheting. If you scroll up a wee bit in the post, I have a Notes section and it will tell you any notes that might assist you when reading the pattern 🙂 We do count the chain 3 later as as stitch but not until I add a note into the instructions to count them. I hope this helps!! Rhondda

  8. Rhondda do you chain 3 with the mc then do 12 dc I’m making the 3-5 year hat also after I make the mc how many chains is required

  9. Hi Debbie, It was a typo. Thank you for seeing it. I’ve updated the instructions to change the second R6 to a R7.

  10. Why is there two R6 instructions listed under the women’s size ?

  11. That’s great when wearing a wool hat on your own. I also want to knit a hat like this for the winter. Maybe I need to learn basic knitting wool first
