FREE Adult Crochet Hat Pattern (looks like Knit)

Looks like Knit But its Crochet Warm Cosy Winter Hat (FREE Pattern)

A Beautiful Cosy Crochet Hat FREE Pattern   Being Warm at this time of year is essential. I find a lot of the basic crochet hats quite drafty. Here in South West Scotland winds are strong and it's chilly. SO I am always looking for a good thick warm hat. It makes it even better when its a fast, easy pattern.  Worked in Rows, using the amazing 3rd loop stitch of the HDC aka...Camel stitch.  Which makes this hat look like it's been knitted. But Its definitely crocheted.     You can BUY A PDF of This Pattern  From Ravelry Thank you for your continued Support   CLICK HERE

To close the TOP of your hat choose an open side....
You can either turn inside out and thread your yarn tightly around the top stitches and pull tightly to close gap and secure (Picture shows how hat looks inside out
or Like I did with the brown hat. thread yarn around 1 inch deep of closing end of hat and pull tightly to gather. finish off with pom poms
turn inside out and turn up the bottom open end

IF you want a different colored cuff
Round 1:
By turning your hat inside out rejoin with your choice of color for the cuff. with a sc at center of Back 
working in edge rows, sc evenly spaced around edge, join with slip st in first sc
Rounds 2-5: Single crochet around, do NOT join in each of SC round
Fasten off.

Your finished hat looks like this. However, if you choose to add a colored cuff it will look more like the brown one
I am thrilled at the positive feedback from this easy to crochet hat (Perfect for those who have never crocheted a hat before, yet want to show off their skills to their friends and family by making a hat for them) SO after popular demand, I have added the Height and Length measurements required for you to make your hat bigger (or smaller for a preemie)
Remember your starting Chain will be the HEIGHT of the required hat size.
ie for a child 3-10 years create a chain 6.5 inches to start (remember to very slightly stretch (or use 1 size bigger hook for creating the chain)  (but not pull tight, as you want it to fit snug without being stretched fully)
Then continue working in the pattern for the HEIGHT required  ie. 3-10 years  = 19-20.5 inches
