Crochet Pattern - Flapper Hat

From here
This is such a cute, cute pattern. I had to make it for my teenage niece for Christmas this year. I chose a bright yarn color because she cannot get enough neon, shiny, bright colors in her life.

It took me just a few hours to crochet up. It's a quick piece which is nice for something basic like this. But I like the flair the brim brings. I used a button I crocheted myself instead of a store bought item. I contemplated a flower instead of a button. But, with the busier yarn, I decided that would be too much. I am going to make myself one of these in more subdued colors and will be using a crocheted flower instead of a button.

For a simple button, here is what I did:

  • Make a slip knot and chain 2.
  • Work 6 SC into 2nd ch from hook
  • Sl St into first SC (6 stitches total).
  • Ch 1, work 2 SC into each SC around. SL into first SC (12 stitches total)
  • Ch 1, SC2tog 6 times. SL St in first SC (6 stitches total)
  • Weave in tail, finish. Flatten and stitch to project. 
Here's the link to the free pattern for this hat. It's also a great pattern to use if you are just getting into items that are more than SC and flat. It's a great pattern for your first time working in the round. 


Talk soon!

  1. I actually have used that Red Heart yarn on a beanie hat and a large flower! It's bright and fun!

  2. That is super cute! I'm happy I stumbled across your blog (via a Schoolhouse Crew review). I'm also a homeschooler who is knee-deep in the medical world. I nearly always have a crochet or knitting project going so that I can remain sane in the midst of all the craziness.
