Crochet Hat Pattern Roundup

Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet!

We just recently finished the Block A Week 2019 Crochet Along! If you haven’t already, go check it out! It was a really fun project. We made one square each week for a total of 25 squares. All of those squares were then joined into a blanket!

Right now it’s over 90 degrees every afternoon here in Tennessee. It is so hot I cannot fathom working on another blanket just yet. I am currently in the planning stages for my next crochet along. It should start in early September. I hope to have an announcement ready really soon for the next Crochet Along for this blog!

Until then, why don’t we check out some fun new hat patterns! I start making donation hats around this time every year. My goal is to make 2  – 3 per week until the holidays so that I have plenty of hats on hand. I always donate to local shelters, churches and nursing homes during the cold weather months. I know the power of a good, warm hat, and I am so happy to share my work with others. Crochet is a useful skill that is also FUN!

Because I get bored if I make the same thing over and over again, I always look for new hat patterns to try while growing my donation pile. It keeps me creatively motivated and also makes each hat unique for whoever will receive it!

Here are a few of the patterns I’m going to try out this year.

1. Check out the texture on this hat! I’ve made a few of these for friends already, and they are OBSESSED! Sometimes hat patterns can get a little repetitive. The textured stitches really make this one stand out! I also ordered some of those fur pom poms from Amazon, and they look amazing on this hat.

2. How about something slouchy? This pattern is one of mine: the Slouchy Side Saddle Hat! It is worked from the brim up to make sure it fits tightly around the head while keeping the looseness up top! I made mine using Caron Cakes yarn in Blueberry Kiwi. I love using self striping yarn on these slouch-style hats because the color changes don’t seem as obvious as they do in some patterns.

3. If you want to try another textured beanie pattern, this one is perfect! If you make it using a neutral yarn it is a perfect unisex item! The front post double crochets give it a nice feel and also help hold in warmth during those cold winter months!

4. Maybe you’re looking for ways to use up all your yarn scraps. I always am. Half of my project ideas come from that idea! This hat pattern would be a great way to use up all those leftover bits. This pattern also includes a neck warmer/scarf pattern if you want to create a set!

5. Here’s another great stash buster pattern. I really love this version with those vibrant colors, but you really could work this up with a lot of different themes! I’ll definitely be making a few of these.


BONUS: If you want to keep it simple, check out my Basic Beanie Pattern. This pattern shows you how to make the easiest beanie you’ve ever made! Once you get the hang of it, you can knock out lots of these in a short period of time! My donation bag always has lots of these, too!

I’m working on partnering with a local charity in my area to spread the love farther and wider this year. If you would be interested in helping or adding to our donation pile, email me at amber@couchsurfercrochet.com.

Here are a few of the patterns I’m going to try out this year.

1. I just LOVE, love, love houndstooth, so I am especially eager to check out this Caron Houndstooth Bright Hat. I love this look! And I like it with AND without the pom poms, so that’s totally your choice. If you want to try basic houndstooth without the stripes, check out this pattern!

2. How about something slouchy? This pattern is one of mine: the Slouchy Side Saddle Hat! It is worked from the brim up to make sure it fits tightly around the head while keeping the looseness up top! I made mine using Caron Cakes yarn in Blueberry Kiwi.

3. I can’t WAIT to try out this sock monkey hat! I loved sock monkey stuffed animals when I was a kid, and this pattern captures that look perfectly!

4. I have soooo many different shades of yarn. I can’t wait to match up a few of them to try out this Crochet Plaid Slouchy. Pink is my favorite color, so I’m definitely trying this version first, but I can picture this in so many colors!!

5. And another inspiration in pink: the Just Groovin’ Crochet Beanie. Isn’t that detail on the brim amazing?! I can’t wait to try that technique!
