Kid’s Vintage Hat Crochet Pattern (CAL for a Cause)

July 10, 2020

The Kid’s Vintage Hat Crochet Pattern is a simple hat made with all half double crochet! And again with the half double crochet in the 3rd loop… I really LOVE using this technique and the texture look it gives.

  1. Hi Breann,
    I am a bit confused with round 18-20 of your kid’s vintage hat. Are you able to give some instruction on HD’s in 3rd looping each stitch?
    Thank you…I’ve enjoyed making your hats and beanies.

    1. Hi I love this pattern and would love to make it for my grandaughter who us a teen. Any ideas on how to adjust to make it in an adult size

  2. Thank you for this pattern! I made it in periwinkle & added a vintage button to the center of the flower. <3 Love it!

  3. Want to make it for adult of 20 years age, can you help ? And I don’t know how to increase the rounds, I’m a beginner only please help

  4. Please explain Round 22. Do you mean *hdc, sc, sc, sl st, sl st* or…? Love this pattern. I am making unique and beautiful hats for those in my area who are on the alopecia and cancer treatment journeys at no cost to them. Your hat is so pretty and looking forward to making many of them to brighten someone’s day. So glad that I found your website. I truly believe that God led me to your site. Didn’t know that it existed until yesterday! 😀 Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi! You will hdc in each stitch around. Then sc in the next 2 stitches. And sl st in the net 2 stitches. Then fasten off 🙂 The single crochets and slip stitches are to taper it off before cutting the yarn. Hope this helps!

    1. Yes, do the entire round in hdc. Then sc in the next 2 stitches. Then sl st in the next 2. So it will be 1 full round + 4 stitches

  5. Or do you mean that after you complete the round of hdc, you start the next “round” with one set of sc next 2 and sl st next 2 as the final stitches to complete the project. Sorry to be so confused. Love this pattern. Thanks for hanging in there with me, Breann.

    1. Yes! Start the next round with the 2 sc and 2 sl st. It will only be 4 stitches. It will straighten out the bottom a bit before fastening off 🙂

  6. Sometimes written communication can be tricky. Let me re=state what I think you are saying. On Round 22 , You state there are 70 hdc + 4 stitches. So Round 22 instructions would be hdc every stitch (70 hdc) for that round. Round 23: sc the first two stitches each and the third and fourth stitches are the finishing stitches of sl in each; and then fasten off. Please confirm. Please accept my apologies for the confusion.

    1. I was right there with you about Round 22. It is a little confusing but I completely understand now! Thanks for all of that so I didn’t have to inquire! LOL

  7. My beatiful 9 year old niece is undergoing chemotherapy and has asked me to make this hat for her. Do you have a gauge reference? I have a tendency to crochet rather tightly and need to make my gauge swatches. 🙂
