About this Pattern

If you’re looking for a hat with great texture and color, you’re in the right place. Our woven stitch crochet hat uses a beautiful variegated yarn with long sweeping color transitions paired with a textured stitch for a project you’ll want to wear everyday.

With this project you’ll get to practice crocheting a hat that’s worked from the band up to the crown. The band is crocheted in a flat piece using one of our favorite ribbing stitches, then joined to crochet the rest of the hat in the round. There are no crown decreases to worry about here. It’ll draw up and add to the slouchy fit.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions to walk you through our woven stitch crochet hat from start to finish.
