Crochet Ribbed Hat

Grey hat6

This simple crochet ribbed hat is easy to make

For your crochet ribbed hat you will need....

A 100g ball of acrylic DK yarn

A 4mm crochet hook


Make 51 chain

First row: double crochet (dc) into the 2nd chain from the hook (If you are in the US read that as single crochet) then dc into every chain to the end

2nd row: chain1 and turn.  dc into the back loop only of every stitch to the end

repeat row 2 until your work fits comfortably around your head

Thi will probably be about 90 rows

join the last row to the first row to form a tube

You can do this either by using an overcast sewing stich, or you can crochet them together which is probably your simplest option.

Leave a long length of yarn for gathering the top

Grey hat1

Thread up a large blunt needle with the yearn and make a running stitch all around the top

Grey hat2

Pull the yarn to gather the top but be careful not to pull too hard as the yarn will easily break

You will find that it is too bulky to be able to close up the top completely.  Don't try to force it.  Instead just tie off the yarn then thread up your needle again to sew the top fully together

Then turn it inside out and turn up the brim and your hat is done.

For a more fitted hat...

Try this pattern instead.  It is a little more complicated but gives a neater shape
