Houndstooth Wool Hats

Posted on September 23, 2018

I won this Houndstooth hat pattern through a raffle on Ravlery. I wanted to crochet the pattern in wool yarns for the Warmth for Warriors hat drive. Here are the two wool hats I have crocheted so far with the pattern from Liz McQueen.

It is not a free pattern but I was fortunate enough to win it as otherwise it is $4.50. I do think the pattern is well written and includes many step-by-step photos to help a person crochet the hat. The pattern calls for a I (5.5 mm) crochet hook. I used a smaller H crochet hook so I found the hat a bit short so I added more rows to achieve an 8 inch long hat.

As a bonus, the hat is reversible. Here is the other hat I crocheted in green and tan wool yarns. Below are two photos showing the two different looks of the same hat. Isn’t it cool how different it looks reversed?

The first hat was crocheted even on 60 stitches for a 20.5 inch cir. The second hat followed the pattern width with 64 stitches for a 22 inch cir. I crocheted both hats with 4 extra rows to equal 8 inch long hats.

Overall I love the pattern and plan to crochet more wool hats in support of the Warmth for Warriors 2018 hat drive using this attractive pattern.
