It’s been a little dark, gloomy, rainy and snowy here in the Arctic of Minnesota. I just needed some blue skies over head for a bit.
Since I can’t change the weather, I can at least crochet some blue skies for myself, and now you can too 🙂 Of course, you can choose what ever color cheers you up in the darkness of winter.
Here’s the free written pattern and video tutorial. This one’s really easy to adjust, so that’s probably all you’ll need. If you’d still like the ad free PDF, it’s available for purchase on my Etsy and Ravelry stores, as well as lovecrafts.com.
Hope everyone enjoys some blue skies with me 🙂 Happy crocheting!

Stitches used & code
- ch = chain
- st = stitch(es)
- sl st = slip stitch
- hdc = half double crochet
- rep = repeat
- ” = inches
Notes: This pattern works from the bottom up. It’s very beginner friendly. The sizes can easily be adjusted for anyone, child or adult. All you need to do to adjust the size is to make the chain long enough to match the circumference of the head. From there you can just hdc around till it’s the length you prefer. If you want a more slouchy hat, add more rows, or for a more form fitting hat, make less.
Gauge : 10 hdc X 8 rows = 4″
Size and Measurements
Fit most women’s head : 20″ circumference X 9.5” tall
Note: Make sure to place the stitch marker into the first stitch in every round.
Round 1 : ch 50, sl st into the first ch that you did, 1 hdc into each ch around. Total of 50 hdc
Round 2 : 1 hdc into each st around. Total of 50 hdc
Round 3 – 19 rep round 2
The end of round 19 cut the yarn and leave 10″ long tail to close up the top of the hat
Close up the top of the hat
Thread the tail into the yarn needle and whip stitch, making a whip stitch into each stitch around the top of the hat all the way around. Grab the end and pull tight, tie a few knots and weave in all the ends ( Check picture below )
Attaching pom pom
Attach the pom pom to the outside of the hat, tie a few knots on the inside of the hat and then weave all the ends ( Check picture below )
