Crochet Hipster Hat- Fiona
This crochet hipster hat is super stylish and was designed in a hipster style that is popular in all of the stores right now. It fits very much like a semi slouch and requires the wearer to pull the hat all the way on the head and may require a little shaping when placed on the head as it has a lot of give to it.
I was inspired to make this hat after doing some online shopping and noticing that all the knit and crochet style hats that were popular right now were shaped very different than the basic beanie style. They were shorter and rounder. I love the way the triple crochet X’s give the hat so much stretch. I hope you enjoy thiscrochet hipster hat as much as I do.
1/3 skein of Red Heart yarn
(you can use any comparable worsted weight but I have only tested this in Red Heart so I can’t tell you what size hook you will need to obtain gauge)
5.5mm (I) hook
or whatever size necessary to obtain gauge, if you crochet tight you will probably require a 6.0mm(J) hook
tapestry needle to weave ends
Circumference- 20” (but very stretch and very giving)
1st round- 1 ¼”- gauge will change with next round so be sure to check round 2 as well
2nd round- 2 ¾”
This pattern is slightly complicated and is intended for intermediate crocheters, however once you understand the way the stitch is worked a beginner may be successful at it as well.
