Gather Your Supplies
For this pattern we’ll be working with Chic Sheep yarn by Marly Bird and Red Heart, a super soft medium weight merino wool yarn. You’ll need to pick your favorite three colorways (this is the hardest part!) and get one skein of each. You can complete one of the adult hats with just one skein of each color and you can make a couple of the baby size hats with one skein each color!
- 1 skein Chic Sheep Sterling – Color A
- 1 skein Chic Sheep Lace – Color B
- 1 skein Chic Sheep Lipstick – Color C
- 5 mm Crochet Hook
- Darning Needle

The Argyle crochet hat is worked from the band up. We’ll start with the knit-like band in rows then stitch it together to form a ring. From there we’ll move right into the Argyle color pattern which is achieved using two additional contrast colors. There are two color diagrams – one for the adult sized hats and one for the remaining sizes.
Once the color diagram has been completed, we’ll work through a series of crown decreases to finish up!
