Learn to Crochet a Hat in the Round

Learn to crochet in the round and make a hat! This level two crochet project will teach you to crochet from the top-down, increase to create a circle, utilize the half double crochet stitch, and use stitch markers and measurements to create a perfectly fitted hat.

Sign Up: Learn these techniques in our Open Studio class! Open Studio is a drop-in workshop every Sunday from 3–5 PM. It's open to all crafts & experience levels, a time where you can learn anything you want, including a crocheted hat! Click here to sign up.

Pattern: provided when you sign up to learn to make a crochet hat during one of our Open Studio sessions.

Required Experience: You should be very comfortable with the single crochet stitch before starting this project

Required Yarn and Tools. 200 yards of worsted weight yarn. You must use yarns that are at least 50% animal fiber (plant fiber & acrylic yarns are harder to work with, especially when learning) and only use a dark color if you have good eyesight. You will need a US 7 (4.5 mm), H (5 mm), or I (5.5 mm) hook, plus 7 stitch markers or safety pins.
