Being Warm at this time of year is essential. And with the cost of living rising, we are all searching for ways to keep warm. 
You will usually always find me wearing my crocheted beanie Hat. Whilst out and about the farm. As it keeps the heat in.

However, as it gets even colder, especially in the harsh winter months. 
I  find a lot of the basic beanie crochet hats quite drafty around the ear part, so I challenged myself to crochet a WARM cozy turnup Hat for myself and one for my husband.

Using th eFREE HAT Pattern it is easy to make  an Adult man crochet Hat 

My husband did not want a pom pom on his so the way the top of the crochet hat is constructed means it fits neatly around the crown shape of your head. Without the BULK of many crochet hats. 

I am always receiving requests looking for a good thick cosy warm hat.  One that can be crocheted for a man or a woman simple and stylish. 
The Double Thick brim ensures ears are kept snug and warm and It makes it even better when it's a fast, easy crochet pattern to make this hat!

This is the Hat my husband is wearing. YOu can make this hat fit all sizes by adding the TURNUP you wish measurement ADDED to the Main hat height measurement )see the table of sizes underneath

The hat is a quick easy crochet project and very satisfying to complete. As it looks Very professional when finished (These hats sell well at craft fairs or via the Facebook marketplace, over the winter time) 
Using a simple yet unique crochet stitch pattern, which mocks a knit ribbing pattern.  But is 100 percent crochet. 
Working into the back loops and diagonal loops of the stitches produces a textured and stretchy fabric that makes the crocheted hat look knitted. With the helpful videos, it is an excellent beginner and aspiring crochet project. 
easy crochet winter hat patterns free
Both hats were made using Chunky Aran 
The hat is Crocheted by working in ROWS, using the amazing 3rd loop stitch of the HDC. 
By Working either Into the Front diagonal loop or by working into the Back of the 3rd loop. 
Usually, you will see this crochet stitch referred to as the  'camel' stitch 
knit look crochet stitches

This is the 3rd stitch/loop/bar of the HDC-Highlightedabove in the picture is the crochet hook going THROUGH the diagonal bar. Also not the pattern texture on the OPPOSITE side.
This helps you remember what side to work the front and back diagonal stitch.

For the return row, the diagonal stitch is hidden under the top loops. SO For further help identifying the 3rd loop look just under what we would normally call the front and back loops that make our V.

After working a normal HDC row, turn your work and You will see the Diagonal Bar.

This is where we will be working when creating the front HDC stitch.
When working the BACK Half double crochet, we want to insert our hook and pull this diagonal 3rd bar to the BACK of the work to complete our HDC.

 (On this row You are pushing the front and back loop V to the front of our work)

Easy  Crochet winter hat pattern FREE

Working in this manner makes a beautiful KNIT 2, purl 1 effect, and makes this hat look like it's been knitted. But It's definitely a crocheted hat.
For more explanations of how we will work these stitches also. Please watch the Short videos below.

Lisa's Warm Cosy (Not Knit) Crochet Hat Pattern

Skill Level: 
  • You must be able to work in back loops, and the Camel Stitch (working into 3rd hidden stitch of HDC)
  • On 1 row you will work into the FRONT diagonal loop facing you on the 2nd row, you will work into the
  • BACK/behind of the diagonal loop.
  • Watch these 2 videos for a further explanation of working in the 3rd loop For the purpose of this pattern, I will call this the Front HDC 3rd loop = Fhdc3rd loop

This is how to work the opposite row for the hat  Back HDC 3rd loop - Bhdc 3rd loop

You can Make all Sizes of the hat if you have head measurements. 
To make this HAT ANY size You will need the Length of hat + Turnup length Chain that amount and complete several rows. 

You can manipulate the numbers of each stitch worked to have more of the knit look in the middle of the hat and remember to slip stitch at the top for 5 sts , no matter what size.
Continue in ROWS until your LENGTH measures the circumference desired for the hat. Sew to join. 

What you will Need to Crochet this HAT 

  • The pattern is written in US terms 
  • Yarn King Cole Chunky(af)
  • Hook 5.50mm
  • Special Stitches: Camel stitch worked in ROWS (For the purposes of THIS pattern.)
  • Working in ROWS 
Abbreviations
  • blsl st- back loop slip stitch
  • blsc - Back loop single crochet 
  • SC - Single crochet
  • HDC - half double crochet
  • slst- slip stitch
  • Front HDC 3rd loop - Fhdc3rd loop
  • Back HDC 3rd loop - Bhdc 3rd loop
Notes: It's very easy to make this hat in ANY size you wish. Here is a handy Measurement guide I USE for working Hats in ROWS. Click to enlarge or save ot computer .
crochet hat sizes chart
To make a HAT ANY size, crochet a rectangle using these measurements - REMEMBER to ADD on Chain stitches if you require a turn-up
  1. Hat Height from top of crown to bottom of the ear – this will be your foundation chain.
  2. How many Stitches You HAVE in TOTAL will depend on how long you wish your hat.
  3. If you want a Big Turn up like mine then remember to include THAT measurement when you measure from the top of the crown to under the ear and then fold UP measuring tape until you have the BRIM size you want. If making for your self I simply measure the chain by making it long enough to go from the top of my head to under the middle of Chin. 
  4. Measure head around just above the ears. Circumference of the head.
  5. This will be how LONG you work your rows Back and Forward until the circumference measurement is reached.
SO IF I wanted to crochet a hat for a 12-18 months I would CHAIN HAT Height length +PLUS how many chains I want for the TURN UP  = TOTAL amount of chains required
  1. Then I will ensure the number of chains I added for the TURN UP ARE made in THE Back Loops single Crochet,
  2. The Main length of hat will be made using HDC front or back post diagonal st. - Including Top 5 stitches made in back loop slip stitch

Crochet Hat Pattern, crochet hat is made in ROWS to form a rectangle then side seams sewn together and top is sewn around and pulled tightly to close.  

Please NOTE:  the purpose of this Crochet Hat I have based my stitches and stitch count to fit on a hat for an adult female and adult male. 
Chain 41 to start
Row 1:
working into the 2nd chain from the hook, work single crochet into the first 20 sts, (for a DEEP turnup), 15 sts for a normal turn-up)  HDC in the next 15 stitches, or 20 sts for normal turn up!  (MIDDLE OF HAT), Sl st in last 5 sts (Top of hat) Ch1 TURN

Row 2:
Back loop slip st in first 5 sts, (working into the 3rd hidden loop FACING YOU) Front hdc 3rd loop in next 15 sts (20sts) , Back Loop Sc in nxt 20 (15) sts, Ch1 TURN
