8 squares (ch 3 + 3 dc) = 4 inches

To check your gauge, crochet the first 12 rows of the pattern. Measure how many squares you have over 4 inches.

→If you have less than 8 squares in 4 inches, your gauge is looser than mine. Try a smaller crochet hook.

→If you have more than 8 squares in 4 inches, your gauge is tighter than mine. Try a larger crochet hook.

  • Crochet Heart Hat is worked flat using the corner to corner technique.
  • The brim is made separately and then sewn onto the hat.
  • You can choose to follow the pixel graph or the written instructions.
  • Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making a chain 3+ 3 double crochets for each square.
  • Chain 6 to start each new row and chain 3 at the beginning of each square.

Explanation of c2c Stitch

Corner to corner (c2c) crochet is a technique where you crochet “squares” in diagonal rows.

You start in the bottom right corner and end in the opposite top left corner. Each row is increased by one square.

Each square in the graph = chain 3 + 3 double crochet.

Width & Length Corners

The first decreases for both the width and length will create corners.

To make a decrease, when you reach the end of the row, you will turn your work and slip stitch across the 3 dc’s in the last square made.

Join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space and chain 3 + 3 dc.
