Crochet Hat with Hearts

crochet heart hats with pom poms

Last week I posted my corner to corner Heart Hat pattern and you guys showed it a lot of love! Thank you for that. I wanted to design another Heart Hat using half double crochet (hdc) stitches for those of you that don’t know how to crochet corner to corner.

Your hat will look slightly different (but better!) from the hats in the pictures here. After I assembled the hats, I decided to make a few design tweaks to improve the look and fit of the hats. I moved the hearts down and eliminated a few rows from all three sizes. I hope you enjoy this pattern!

Skill Level

Advanced beginner

Materials

  • I don’t want to recommend a hook size. I was able to obtain the gauge using a H 5mm crochet hook. You will want to make your own gauge swatch(es) to determine what size hook you should use (see “gauge” section below). 
  • yarn: worsted weight (#4). I used Caron One Pound (Dark Gray & Deep Violet) and Red Heart Super Saver in Turqua and White.
  • tapestry needle
  • locking stitch markers
  • scissors
  • Large Pom Pom maker
  • Hot melt adhesive

Toddler, Child & Adult

Gauge

19 half double crochet = 5 inches

12 rows = 4 inches

PLEASE make a gauge swatch before you begin. Our individual tensions and the thickness of worsted weight yarns can vary greatly.

Abbreviations

  • hdc = half double crochet
  • sc = single crochet
  • ch = chain
  • ch(s) = chains
  • st = stitch
  • st(s) = stitches
  • rem = remaining
  • hdc2tog = half double crochet 2 stitches together

Pattern Notes

  • When you are changing colors, use the new color to do the final pull through of the stitch that is the old color.
  • Pattern is worked back and forth in rows of half double crochet (hdc) from the bottom up.
  • You can print and follow the pixel graph or follow the written instructions.
  • Chain 2 at the beginning of each row.
  • The brim is worked flat and sewn onto the hat.

Brim for Crochet Hat with Hearts

Crochet hook: You’ll need to use a crochet hook that gives you a brim that stretches to the following lengths:

Toddler: 19 inches
Child: 20 inches
Adult: 22 inches

I used a G4mm crochet hook. If your gauge for the hat was different from mine, you may need to use a different hook size for the brim.

Row 1: ch 9, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each rem ch, turn (8)

Row 2: ch 1, sc in each st in the back loops only, turn (8)

Toddler size: repeat row 2 for a total of 72 rows

Child size: repeat row 2 for a total of 76 rows

Adult size: repeat row 2 for a total of 80 rows

Use your tapestry needle to sew the brim to the hat. Each stitch from the hat should be sewn to a row from the brim. I recommend using locking stitch markersto connect them before I started sewing. The brim will stretch as you go. 

Pom Pom for Crochet Hat with Hearts

Photos are from my LOVE Beanie.

Use your large Pom Pom maker.

Firmly and evenly wind your yarn around each set of arches. After the first set of arches, close them and then wind your yarn around the second set.

Cut the yarn between each set of arches.

Use your scrap piece of yarn to tie the pom pom. I recommend you double/triple knot it.

Carefully open the arches.

Use a hot melt adhesive to place a dab of glue in the center of the pom pom. This will help prevent it from unraveling.

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom pom to the top of your hat
