If you’re looking for an elegant womens hat crochet pattern, then you’ve found it. This spiral crochet hat pattern is worked in two colors, has a slight slouch and can be modified for a comfortable fit.
The two colors give you a beautiful color tone. As for the stitch pattern, it has a slight texture on the wrong side of the fabric, which you could actually use as the right side if you wanted to…. for something different.
It is the perfect crochet hat for all types of weather to keep warm and cozy. And it’ll be much appreciated by the recipients, should you choose to make this as a gift.
I made several hats with this design. And it’s amazing what you can do simply by switching up your crochet hooks. If worked using only one size hook throughout you get a nice beanie hat, and if worked with a smaller hook at the brim you get a slightly slouchy hat.
My first hat was made with a 4.00mm throughout the whole pattern. This is the tan and black beanie. It fits me perfectly! It’s a bit tight, but still nice in my opinion.
The black and grey was crocheted with a 5.50mm and it’s slightly bigger. Then for a brim I switched back to a 4.00mm to make it fit me. You can use any hook that you need to customize the size.
If you want to make adjustments at the crown diameter, you can do so. This crochet hat size chart is there as a reference guide.
The crochet hat pattern is worked with two colors of Caron Simply Soft. It is a medium worsted weight yarn. Although acrylic, it is super strong, yet soft and perfect for anything that you plan on wearing. On top of that, it washes well and is easy on the wallet.
This crochet spiral hat pattern is started off with two colors in the very first round. The pattern is worked in a continuous round changing colors after each round.
With two colors, it gives you a nice and clean two-toned look on the one side and a lot of texture on the other side.
The spiral is slight, but it’s just right for an elegant-looking hat.
This hat pattern is very easy to crochet. The most difficult thing is to keep track of your stitches during the increase rounds. I found myself messing up continuously until I came up with a new way of counting to distinguish between the increase and single stitches. :) You just have to remember that you’re omitting the last stitch when working with CB.
Stitch markers can help!
First part of Rnd 1: 3 stitches in CA and 2 in CB.
Finish Rnd 1 by crocheting into first 3 stitches made with CA.
