Lace and Puff Crochet Hat and Cowl

This crochet hat and cowl pattern is crocheted with the puff stitch and a bit of open lace for a nice lacy but cozy hat and scarf set for the fall or spring weather. I love the bit of lace at the top of the hat, it’s perfect for showing off your crochet talent, especially when you are short like me… because everyone can see the top of your head.

Lace and Puff Crochet Hat and Cowl Pattern Set.

The hat pattern is available in two sizes by switching up your yarn as instructed, and the cowl can be crocheted to any length and height that you want. The pattern provides you with two options, but you can easily modify the cowl as needed. Make it an oversized cowl for a cozy hood in the cold winter months, or keep it short and sweet for just a bit of extra warmth in transitional weather.

I used Red Heart Super Saver and Red Heart Comfort. Both yarns are economic, but if you plan on gifting this crochet hat and scarf set, then why not choose a softer and more elegant looking yarn.

This is an intermediate pattern; however, it doesn’t take much to master this once you know the basic crochet stitches. To help you work up to this level you might want to check out these beginner crochet patterns.

  • Crochet Hook: I/9-5.50mm
  • Other: Measuring Tape, Scissors, Yarn Needle.

  • For a 20.25" Hat: Gauge measures 3.25" over first 4 rnds
  • For a 22" Hat: Gauge Measures just under 3.5" over the first 4 rnds
  • Cowl: Gauge is not important for the cowl as you can make it any length you want by increasing the beginning chains in multiples of 2.

Notes

  • This pattern calls for a medium weight yarn and provides you with two different gauge measurements for two different sizes. I used Red Heart Super Saver for the Smaller size, and Red Heart Comfort for the Larger size. The comfort yarn is a bit thicker than the super saver, but choose any yarn and hook size to obtain gauge needed for desired size.
  • When the pattern says (puff st, ch 1) in next st, work the puff stitch as instructed and secure with a chain 1. Then make another chain for a total of two chains.
