Ridged Hat Pattern

Posted on June 7, 2020

These last few weeks, I have been busy crocheting more hats for the Warmth for Warriors annual hat drive. These hats were crocheted using the free Red Heart Ridged Hat Pattern. I first saw this hat on a Red Heart yarn wrapper and really liked the look of the crocheted cables on the hat.

Ridged Cables Hat

I have crocheted this pattern using a I hook and also a J hook. Both times the hat is too short without having to add some additional rows to get the desired length I need for a men’s hat size.
I have found that if I add 3 extra rows in the middle I am at about 7.25” long in length. Then I crochet rows 14-17 (4 rows) for the trim rows. Length is about 8.5” long and fits nicely.

Here is one more hat I crocheted using the pattern and added some camo type yarn for stripes. The variegated yarn was a scrap leftover from a skein of Premier Yarns in Oak Moss colorway.

W4W Woodsy Striped Cable Hat

I really like how the stripes came out using the Oak Moss yarn. I don’t have any more of it but am thinking I need to buy another skein of the yarn in the near future. Overall I really like this Ridged Hat Pattern and definitely will be crocheting more hats for W4W using it.
