Narwhal Hat

Narwhal Hat


MARCH 16, 2018

Note: I recently decided to revisit my basic beanie/hat pattern.  After designing my Candy Corn and Scarecrow hats using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I found that I really liked the size and closeness of the stitches. I will be transitioning all of my hat and wig patterns over to my new Basic Beanie pattern beginning on Monday, October 22nd. 

- H/5 mm & J/6 mm crochet hooks (I love these Clover hooks!)
- tapestry needles
- stitch markers
- poly fil
- worsted weight yarn in light blue, dark blue & white

0/3m, 3/6m, 6/12m, toddler, child & adult

You are crocheting in the round (hat).
The ch 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a dc.
You can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row before you begin the earflaps.

Crochet gauge: 15 dc= 4”, 7 rows= 3"

If you find that your hat is too large, use an I 5.5 mm crochet hook.

If you would like me to walk you through the first four rounds of my hat or if you need help with making a magic ring or any of the stitches, visit my channel.

Instructions between two asterisks should be repeated for the remainder of the round.

Rnd 1: magic ring, ch 2, 12 dc, join with sl st in top of first dc [rnd 1 count= 12]

Use a tapestry needle and blue yarn to sew mouth onto hat.

Cut six 30” strands of both blue yarns (total= 12 strands). Holding all of the strands, fold in half and pass the folded loop through the bottom of the ear flap (use hook to help). Pass the loose ends through the loop and pull to form a knot. Divide the strands into three sections (8 strands in each) and braid.  Repeat for 2nd braid.
