Crocheted Helmet Hat Pattern

Posted on June 19, 2013


I have been crocheting helmet hats for the troops. After using a few different patterns, I tweaked my own basic pattern and thought it might be helpful to write out the crochet pattern for everyone’s free use.

These helmet caps are designed to only come to the edge of the ears. If you want a longer hat or a cuff, repeat round 6 a few extra times for a longer hat. Then add the 2 rounds of single crochet for trim. The two rounds of single crochet add a nice tight trim for the hats.

I only chain 2 for the beginning of my rounds. I find the joining seam is tighter this way. Here is the back joining seam. You can click on it to super size it. If you prefer you can chain 3 but I think by just chaining two, the seam looks better.

As always please enjoy the free crochet pattern below!

    Do you have an address for the service men who you make these for? Is there a place to send these hats to?

    Good for those freezing cold Afghan nights. It gets unbelievably cold at night out there. It’s good to see you are doing something positive for the troops over there.

    Do the hats need to be particular colors? Our guild is always in the middle of a charity project and this sounds like a good one.

    @Kaye- The Warmth for Warriors organization requests darker colors like brown, black, grey, or tan for the troops overseas. But for the ones used here in the states at hospitals and clinics, they can be any color. Please just mark the fiber content as they want 100% wool for overseas only. Thanks so very much for any help your guild can provide.
