Crocheted Ribbed Hat Pattern

Posted on March 3, 2014

I’ve been busy lately crocheting more hats for the Warmth for Warriors group. One of my on-line group friends crocheted a cute hat using a ribbed stitch style that I really liked. After some help from Ellen, I finally got the pattern created. Below is the written crochet hat pattern that I created featuring the ribbed band that was inspired by Ellen from our Ravelry group.

The two-toned wool hat is my favorite using the crochet pattern so far. I used the pattern below and at round 7 switched from the olive green to the oatmeal colored wool yarn. Then you alternate every other round in the two colors ending at round 20 with the olive green yarn. I carried the yarn not in use behind by just dropping it at my joining slip stitch. When you come back around you just pick up the dropped color at the slip stitch.

At row 21, I began the ribbing with the olive green wool. Make sure you use the same color in round 20 that you use for the ribbing so the first round of ribbing matches that you are working the front and back posts around.

Here is another version of the ribbed hat and in an extra large size. This one is crocheted all in one color and was designed more as a helmet cap to fit under a soldier’s helmet. I started with 16 double crochet (Dc) stitches and only went to round 15 following my original crocheted helmet hat pattern. I then added the ribbing rounds to complete the hat. It measures 23″ for a circumference and is 8-1/2 inches long.

As you can see you can change up the pattern’s fit and look by working in half-double (Hdc) or double crochet (Dc) stitches. And by working in stripes or all in one color of yarn. I have also included changes to crochet this hat for a child’s head size.

Have fun with the pattern and as always happy crocheting to all.

Ribbing:
Ch 2, *work front post double crochet (FP Dc) around Hdc stitch of prior round, then work back post double crochet (BP Dc) around next Hdc of prior round*. Repeat by working FP Dc then BP Dc around. Join with Sl St to top of Ch-2.

Tips: The Ch 2 at start of round is your first BP Dc so your round should end with a FP Dc before you join to the beg

Repeat ribbing round without turning for 4 rounds for adult hat and 3 rounds for child’s hat.


Make sure you FP Dc around the front post stitch of prior round and BP Dc around back post stitch so your stitches are all lined up for the ribbing portion of the hat pattern.

    I am at round 5 is it supposed to be wavy or lay flat at this point?

    @Kenni – It is a bit wavy at this point but by round 8 or 9 it all flattens out. Let me know how it works out for you but if you keep going you will find it all works out well. Best wishes.

    By the picture, it looks like last round is sc or sl st? Or is it rib?

    Betsy — It is still the rib stitch, just repeat the ribbing round. Just looks like SC in photo.

    the striped hat picture looks like the rounds alternate in different widths but the pattern says hdc for every row. how did you get the thinner/thicker striped look?


  15. Cindy

    Brenda – Each round is Hdc and it is just how it looks with the different colors. The yarn was all the same wool weight. It is just kinda cool how it works out and has this look. Let me if I can help further.
