Dinosaur Hat

Dinosaur Hat

March 3, 2018

My youngest, Mark, LOVES dinosaurs so I just had to design a dinosaur hat for him. I decided to keep it simple and make a crochet dinosaur spike hat.

This crochet hat is simple, easy to make and works up very quickly. It is a great crochet project for crochet beginners. Enjoy!

I also have a Dinosaur Spike Hat that is made using worsted weight yarn.

- L 8mm Size Crochet Hooks- (for working with thick yarns)
- Tapestry Needles 
- Stitch Markers 
- Small Scissors
- Bulky Weight Yarn in green & gray

Toddler, Child & Adult

10 dc= 4 inches

4 rows= 2.5 inches

- You are crocheting in the round from the top down.
- The chain 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a double crochet.
- You can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row.

This is the hat size guide that I use to design my hats. This guide was made by Jeanne Steinhilber for The Crochet Crowd. You can read the original post here.

Make 4

Crochet hook: L 8 mm
Yarn: gray

Note: I stopped after round 5  for three of the spikes and stopped after round 6 for the spike that gets sewn directly on top of the head.

Rnd 1: magic circle, ch 2, 6 hdc, join to top of first hdc (rnd 1 count= 6)

Rnd 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 sts, join [rnd 2 count= 8]

Rnd 3: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 sts, join [rnd 3 count= 10]

Rnd 4: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 4 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 4 sts, join [rnd 4 count= 12]

Rnd 5: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 5 sts, join [rnd 5 count= 14]

Rnd 6: ch 2, 2 hdc in same st, hdc in next 6 sts, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 6 sts, join and fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing onto hat  [rnd 6 count= 16]

Flatten each spike into a triangle shape. You will attach each spike to the hat by sewing the yarn tail through both sides of the spike and around the stitches on the hat.

-Use stitch markers to keep the line of spikes straight.

-Attach the spike that goes directly on top of the head first. It makes it easier to space out the remaining spikes.

-Sew two more onto the back of the head and one onto the front.

  1. Hi – Is this possible to make with an I (5.5mm) hook and with Merino Wool Yarn? If yes, are there any changes in the pattern? More rounds, or less, etc? Thanks!
