The hat with a truly unique stitch pattern that barely looks crocheted.

Skill Level | Intermediate
Finished Size | 20″-22″ circumference; 9.5″ length

The woven stitch when worked in the round has a gorgeous texture that looks like no other stitch. Paired with a yarn with long sweeping color transitions, our woven stitch crochet hat will become a fall and winter staple.

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.
