Native American Hats – Pattern Set Review

Native American Hats #617 is a pattern collection including 6 stunning hat designs. Each of these designs includes instructions to make the hat in three different sizes.

Carol made many of these hats for her family for Christmas and they love them! They are quite quick to work up (except the orange hat: Santa Fe).

The Sante Fe hat is worked back and forth in rows of single crochet, so it does take a little bit more time to complete but the finished hat is actually one of my personal favorites from this set and I think it is worth the extra time and effort.

These beautiful designs are much easier to crochet than you would think and with Carol’s helpful step-by-step video tutorial you will be able to master the technique easily.

These gorgeous Native American Hats are crocheted with an easy-to-learn method where you work only one color at a time, using a dropped double crochet stitch technique. Instead of trying to juggle more than one color of yarn at a time for each row you work, this technique allows you to crochet your stitches into the remaining front loop of a stitch 2 rows prior and add a different color simply! This means you only work with a single color of yarn for each row you are working!

The patterns included in the Native American Hats #617 set are:

  • Eagle. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and Toddler. Style: Beanie. Worked bottom-up.
  • Fiesta. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and 12-18 months. Style: Slouchy Hat. Worked bottom-up.
  • Tribal Heritage. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and Child/Toddler. Style: Slouchy Hat. Worked bottom-up.
  • Traditional Motifs. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and Child/Toddler. Style: Slouchy Hat. Worked bottom-up.
  • Tribal Spirit. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and 12-18 month. Style: Beanie. Worked Top-down.
  • Santa Fe. Sizes: Men, Woman/Teen and Toddler. Style: Toboggan Hat. Worked back and forth in rows, before working the brim in rounds.

Yarn Used for the Patterns

The yarn used and the hook used varies for each pattern size. The men’s hats are generally worked with medium weight (worsted) yarn [4], while the women/teen sized hats are worked with DK (or sport) weight yarn [3] OR medium weight (worsted weight) yarn [4]. The child/toddler/12-18 month hats are worked in DK (or sport) weight yarn.

U.S. Crochet Terms

The Native American Hats patterns are written out in full, in U.S. crochet terminology. For instructions which are being repeated a certain number of times, an “X” has been used to indicate “times”. For example, if you need to repeat something 9 times the instructions will be (sc, dc) 9X. Another way of writing this (in an expanded form) would be *1 sc in the next stitch, 1 dc in the next stitch**. Rep from * to ** nine times.


Each pattern includes a graph for the color-work sections but the instructions have also been provided, written out in full, in the text of the pattern. You can choose whether, or not, to use the graph or to follow the written instructions.

Hat Heights and Lengths

It is relatively easy to change the hat heights so you can make any beanie a slouchy hat and vice versa. Information is included on page 2 to help you with this.

  1. I love the native American afghan and baby cocoon…my current Wip is the afghan for my dear mother who will use it during her kidney dialysis treatments my mother loves everything associated with her heritage

  2. Other than the native American hat designs: I like the tribal traditions poncho and afghan

  3. I have a hard time picking just one!!! The Native American totes are intriguing. The royal Aztec afghan is beautiful. (I want to do all of them!)

  4. I love the placemats and runners! But the whole Native American collection is wonderful

  5. I went a head and purchase the ebook. Cant wait to get started on the eagle hat. And I love the howling wolf afghan, if only i had someone to make it for.

  6. Howling Wolves has been my first pattern I’ve done by this designer thus making it my favorite at this stage

  7. You mean picking just one has to one done. All I see are possibilities the fruits potholders (and others as well) look like if one made double or pairs one could make toddler friendly puppets. Then the hats designs could be lengthened to make scarves. I also think your afghans would allow for a great chance to dream …

  8. I like all of the designs as I am half Native American. I was unable to enter the giveaway as the rafflecopter just goes round and round. If I clicked the other link same thing happens.

  9. So many to choose from! I am in love with the howling wolf afghan though.

  10. I do love the Native American Hats, but I really fell in love with the Kitty Cat Afghan, my daughter would think that it’s the cat’s meow. lol

  11. I posted which hats were my favs but I love all her Native American patterns!

  12. My favorite hat is either the hat that’s fuchsia/white one (top right) or the Eagle hat.

  13. I love the Howling Wolf pattern and the Tribal Traditions
    Poncho & Afghan

  14. I would have to say the Howling Wolf Afghan by Shadylane would be my favorite!! That is absolutely awesome!!

  15. I love the Howling Wolf afghan and Native American Hats. I’m Native and would love to make these. I haven’t seen anything like these patterns. I’m a beginner-intermediate so I hope to be able to make them

  16. I ❤the Howling Wolf Afghan my fingers will be crossed would ❤to win this ❤💛💙💜💚❤💛💙💜💚❤💛💙💜💚❤💛💙💜💚❤💛💙💜💚❤💛💙

  17. 2018 begins our 39th year in business. My how time flies when you are having fun…crochet fun that is! How well I remember the early days of this business when I started out with crochet design ideas, even though I had never even held a crochet hook! A friend showed me how to do a single crochet, and I learned the rest from instruction books! Enjoy your visit here. I hope you will find many things of interest to you.
    Happy crocheting!
