Bumpy Ridges Crochet Hat & Cowl Set

Here is a crochet hat and cowl set to keep you cozy while also keeping the sun out of your eyes. The brimmed hat is designed for the cold winter as well as the cooler weather in the spring and fall seasons.

One thing I love about this hat is the ribbed and bumpy textures along the sides. It is stylish and perfect to go with any type of outfit from plain to dressy.

And if you don’t like the brim, you can always omit it to make yourself a super cozy crochet beanie.

In addition to the hat pattern, I also included a free crochet pattern for a cowl to match. Together they will keep you warm in style.

Finished Size & Yarn

This brim hat pattern is given in one size, however, it can be crocheted into any size hat that you want. by increasing or decreasing the crown diameter. The only thing not so easy to adjust is the brim, but you can easily omit that if making a different size.

This crochet hat size chart can be of help, especially if you plan on making gifts and are unable to take measurements of the head circumference.

Another way to change the size is to simply switch up your yarn and hook sizes… like I did.

The brown hat that you see pictured was crocheted with Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn and an I crochet hook. It measures 10″ across and 7″ from top to bottom not counting the brim.

The grey was done with Caron Simply Soft and an H crochet hook. It measures 9″ across and just over 7″ from top to bottom.

The brown measures an inch wider when laying flat, but both hats are about the same height as I did more rounds on the grey hat.

Although it’s a brim hat, the acrylic gets too hot in the warmer weather. So, if crocheting this for the summer weather, you might want to use a cotton yarn instead.
