Crown: 

The first row of the crown is a foundation double crochet stitch.  I like using the foundation double crochet stitch because you don’t get the tightness of the starting chain.  I want the crown to have some stretch to it!  When I was learning the foundation double crochet stitch I watched this video on YouTube!  If the foundation double crochet stitch isn’t something you’re interested in learning you have a couple of options:

  1. You can use a size up in hook for your starting chain.  In this case you would need to use a size J hook.
  2. You can crochet with your I hook but crochet loosely so your chain doesn’t end up being too tight.

Now, on to the pattern:

Row 1: Ch 3 followed by 62 foundation dc stitches. Sl st in first fdc. At this point I like to take the tail of the starting ch 3 and sew it to the end to get rid of the gap!

Row 2: Ch 2, dc in same st, *ch 1, skip next dc stitch, dc in next 2 dc stitches* (repeat from * to *).

Row 3: Working in ch 1 spaces of previous row, *( 3dc, ch 3, sl st in first ch of ch 3, 3 dc) in first chain 1 space.  sl st in next ch 1 space* You will notice there will be one extra chain 1 space-this will be the back of your crown.  Sl st in those last 2 dc’s and ch 2 of previous row.  Leave a long tail for sewing the crown on the hat!

  1. I have been asked to make one like this for an adult…any help would be appreciated. Red Hat Member……Thanks!

    1. What I would do continue doing an increase for the next couple of rows until it’s your desired size. When making the crown, foundation double crochet until it fits around the hat (not to tight) and follow the pattern but you may have to make more sl st or less sl st’s in the back to accommodate the amount of chains!

      1. Thank you so much. I will try that. Figured it couldn’t be too hard just wanted the expert’s advice. Thank you!!!

  2. I think your pattern is wrong,,after making magic ring shouldn’t you ch 2 as 1st dc? Then doing row 6,,, I only had 4 st left to dc in and it should be 9. All together i have 60 st. Am I doing something wrong or is it written wrong? Thank you

    1. If you check out my chick hat pattern, it’s newborn size! I crochet very tight. I haven’t tried it in a different hook size to know for sure but I would guess using a size F or G would give you a newborn size using this same pattern! If you have any more questions you can shoot me an e-mail and I can try and help you more! Thanks so much!

  3. I’m kind of a noob to crocheting, but I love this hat and want to make it for a friend. My only question is how exactly do you attach the crown to the hat? With the same gray yarn and use a yarn needle? I’d love a picture of what the inside looks like so I can get a better idea of what you did. It is so cute! Thanks!

    1. Yes! Use the gray yarn and a yarn needle! I just weaved in and out of the first double crochet row of the crown! You still want to be able to weave the ribbon in and out of the crown! I don’t have a picture of the inside of the hat and I don’t have one made up that I could take a picture of for you! I’m sorry!

  4. I am have trouble on the crown. How do I transition from one crown peak to the next? Am I supposed to skip one chain one space?

  5. What size is this hat for? I’m making hats for charity and am using an I hook. It seems to be the size for a teenager. I want to make sizes from newborn to 12 yrs. I’m not good at sizing hats. Thanks for any help.

    1. This is a toddler sized hat! I would use a size G or H hook if you want a smaller hat! You can also make it smaller by not doing as many increase rows. It was very helpful for me to look up charts online of hat sizes to know how long/wide a hat should be

  6. Wish you had a printer friendly version of this, So cute going to make it as a gift for a coworker… But printing totally would be easier so I can work on my lunch…
