Thick Front Post Crocheted Hat

Posted on March 4, 2015

Here is my very thick front post crocheted hat. The hat is crocheted by working all front post double crochet stitches in the round. The result is a comfortable very heavy winter hat that will keep you warm.

You can add a few extra rounds to make a longer hat as this is one more of a helmet cap as shown. I have included changes for a smaller ladies or youth size in the free crochet pattern below.

Thick Front Post Crocheted Hat Pattern

Hook: H (5 mm) US sized crochet hook
Materials: 3.5 ounces (200+ yards) Wool or Worsted Medium Weight Yarn
I love this Wool in Dark Navy used in hat shown. (210 Yards)
Finished size: 22 inch cir and 8 inches long for adult size hat

With H hook, Ch 4 and join to form ring. Hat pattern is worked in the round without turning.

Rnd 1
Ch 2, work 13 Hdc in ring. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (14)
(Ch-2 counts as first Hdc st.)
Rnd 2
Ch 2, work front post double crochet (FP Dc) around each Hdc stitch of prior round. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (14)
Rnd 3
Ch 2, work 2 FP Dc around each st. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (28) Do not FP DC around Ch-2 beg st.
Rnd 4
Ch 2, *work 2 FP Dc around next st and 1 FP Dc around next st*, repeat between *. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (42)
Rnd 5
Ch 2, FP Dc in next st, 2 FP Dc around next st, * FP Dc around the next 2 sts, *2 FP Dc around next st*. Repeat between * around. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (56)
Rnd 6
Ch 2, work FP Dc around next 2 sts, *2 FP Dc around the next st and FP Dc around next 3 sts*. Repeat between * around. Join with Sl St to beg Ch-2. (70)

For smaller ladies or youth hat, stop at 70 stitches and work even to 22 rounds. This results in about a 21″ cir by 7- 1/2″ long hat.

Rnd 7
Ch 2, work FP Dc around next 5 sts and *2 FP Dc around the next st* and FP Dc in next 6 sts*, to increase round to 78 stitches. Join to beg ch-2. (78)
Rnd 8 – 24
Ch 2, work FP Dc’s even on 78 sts, join to beg ch-2. (78)

Edging:
Work two rounds of Sc evenly. FO for 8 inches cap length.

Here is the inside of the finished hat to show the ribbing.
