Slouchy Witch’s Hat, free crochet pattern – Dances With Wools

Slouchy Witch’s Hat, free crochet pattern


free crochet pattern for a witch hat

As promised, I’m back today with a new free pattern. Just in time for Halloween, you can DIY your own witch hat. This one is very simple and works up quickly in a nice worsted weight yarn. It’s a versatile piece, able to be worn in a dozen different ways. Apparently, I have a really tiny head, so a circumference of 70 stitches worked just great for me. If you need something bigger, then ignore the stitch count at the end and throw in an extra stitch every few rows. Or, if you are so inclined, just tack on some increasing rows at the end.

I tried, I really did, but none of the cats was interested in modeling the hat for me. One of them was so small, he disappeared under it. I wish I’d gotten a video to share of that one. Let’s just say that hilarity ensued.

So, without further ado, here is the pattern. As always, if you have any questions, just drop me a line and I’ll try to answer them for you.

  1. Hi what size hook did you use for this hat?

  2. Sorry. I thought I had that in there. I used a US size F hook.

  3. Is there a certain pattern to the brim? I added extra rows to the hat and ended at 79 stitches. I’m trying to figure out keeping it the same and just adding extra sc or add increases

  4. I think if you continue with the pattern and ignore the stitch count at the end you should be fine. Each row increases the stitch count just enough to keep the brim flat. I hope that helps.
