Jess a Crochet Kangol Hat (Pattern)

 

This is how it looks when you use 1strand of 4ply yarn and using two strands of 4ply for the brim

Personally I like it when I use two strands of yarn throughout the project! The Grey is how two strands of 4ply yarn looks like throughout the project

Items you’ll need:

1 skein 4ply Yarn (I used red heart super saver black) The whole hat you will double your yarn by using by using both ends of the skein of yarn…I will remind you in the pattern) 🙂

 

 

 Also: You can double the 4ply red heart yarn to thicken it so… if you do it that way you won’t need elastic for it and it works up pretty quick!

  • J crochet Hook

  • Tapestry needle

  • Scissors

  • Marker

  • Elastic

 

Crochet Stitches you have to know:

ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch) , dc (double crochet) , double crochet decrease, HDC (half double crochet), sc (single crochet

Let’s Begin 🙂

Top of the Hat

 

Ch 12

Row 1: dc in the 3rd chain from the hook, dc in each stitch (11)

Row 2-6 are increase Rows

Row 2: Ch3, 1dc in the ch3 stitch, double crochet in the next 9 stitches, 2 dc in the last stitch (13)

Row 3: Ch3, 1dc in the ch3 stitch, double crochet in the next 11 stitches, 2 dc in the last stitch (15)

Row 4: Ch3, 1dc in the ch3 stitch, double crochet in the next 13 stitches, 2 dc in the last stitch (17)

Row 5: Ch3, 1dc in the ch3 stitch, double crochet in the next 15 stitches, 2 dc in the last stitch (19)

Row 6: Ch3, 1dc in the ch3 stitch, double crochet in the next 17 stitches, 2 dc in the last stitch (21)

Row 7-12 Ch3, dc in each stitch

Row 13-17 are decrease Rows

Row 13-17 you are going to do, *1 double crochet decrease in the beginning and 1double crochet decrease in the last two stitches of each row), ch3, turn* … at the end of row 17    you should have 11 double crochet remaining.

Row 18: dc in each stitch (11)

Get your marker ready…

 

Working around the hat

 

Row 19: Ch3, place marker, Dc all the way around the hat (you are double crocheting in your ch 3 spaces) join at the beginning at your chain 3

Row 20-24 (OR when YOU feel is the desire length around the hat): Ch3, dc in each stitch

Time to get your elastic, Measure it around your head , cut and double knot it…

Row 25: Ch1, get your elastic, sc in each stitch while holding the elastic

Row 26-28: Ch1, sc in each stitch

Draw up a tail and cut, you can weave your ends now or wait to do the brim

 

The Brim

 

Find the center of your hat and count 8 spaces to the right

Row 1 of the Brim: ch1, 2 sc in the next stitch, *1sc, 2sc*, *Repeat until you have 21sc

Row 2 of the Brim: ch1, in the back loops only, sc in each st , , Hdc in the Row 28 sc stitch, sl st in the next 2 stitches

Row 3 of the Brim: ch1, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2 sc in the next, *1 sc in the next 3 stitches, 2 sc in the next*, Repeat, Hdc in the Row 28 sc stitch, sl st in the next 2 stitches,

Row 4 of the Brim: ch1, sc in each st, hdc in the Row 28 sc stitch, sl st in the next 2 stitches

(Optional) sc all the way around the hat

Draw up a tail a long tail, cut and weave your tail by sealing the center of the top and bottom of the hat where you would normally put the snapper on the hat, and weave any extra ends 🙂

Enjoy your new item 🙂

Peace, Love and Happy Crocheting!

    ok quick question? How many dc to put in the side rows?

    • Jess says:

      I didn’t count but you should be crocheting in the ch3 spaces and all around the hat coming back to where you started the 1st ch 3 working around the hat 🙂

  2. janet says:

    Hi in row 13-17 wat do you mean by 1 dc decrease in the begining and 1 dc decrease, ch 1 turn, can you please explain. thank you

  5. Marilynn Franklin says:

    Hi Jessica, I am having problems starting off the hat. Do you turn for the 2nd row after chain three or go around to the other side. I keep missing 1 stitch after I do the chain 3 and go in the 3rd stitch part and do 9 after that. It leaves me with 1 stitch less.

  6. Shelly says:
