I made video tutorials for this hat. Please turn on the subtitles if you watch them. They explain what I’m doing.

Brim
I made a video tutorial of the brim: brim tutorial

Use white yarn and chain 9.
Round 1
Sc in 2nd st from the hook. Sc in each ch to end of chain (8 sc)
Round 2
Crochet in the back loops only: ch 1, sc in each st (8) Turn.
Round 3 / 84:
repeat round 2.
Note: if you believe your brim is long enough for the required size, you can stop. Make sure you can divide your number of stitches by 4.

Fold the sides together and join them with 8 sc.

Turn the brim around so the seem is on the inside. Don’t cut the yarn, but continue.

  1. Please define meaning of “dc-dc-dc.” Does this mean one dc in each stitch or do I dc then skip a stitch? No familiar with this notation in U.S. Thank you so much. Rebecca

    1. Hi Rebecca, this means 1 dc in each stitch. Thanks for your question. I just changed the notation and I hope it’s easier to read the pattern now.

    2. What yarn did you use? The pink looks a bit orange in the photos, so it would be helpful to know the exact brand and color numbers you used. Very nice pattern.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that. I’m Dutch and tried my best to translate it into English. Could you help me by explaining what part is hard to follow? That way I can improve the pattern and help people understand it. Thank you.

  2. I find 84 rows makes the hat to big. How many rows can I take off to still make the pattern work? I don’t want to tear it all out and start with a smaller hook.

  3. Ilove this pattern!!! It was fun an easy to make I think that you did an awesome job writting out this pattern!! Thank you so much, I will be making more of this beanie in the future! Thank you once agian , Shannon

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! It’s nice to hear you enjoy the pattern. Thanks for the compliment about how it’s written, I really appreciate that.

  4. I found that it was easy to follow. 🙂 and i really like the pattern.

    But im not sure if the hook conversion is off or what.. Because i did it with a 5mm us and was way to big then dropped down yo a 4.5 seems to be still big

    1. Hello, nice to hear the pattern is easy to follow. Thank you!
      I do crochet quite tight. You could make the brim shorter if you like. As long as you can divide the stitches by four.

  5. Hi – what size hook are you using for the pattern? I didn’t see it in the instructions.

    Thank you! I’m excited to get started 🙂

  6. I made your pattern and I love it!!!. Your directions were so easy to follow and so thorough!! I’ll definitely be making more! Thx so much and God bless!!!

  7. Thank you for those pattern. I do agree that there are some flaws in the pattern though. I think if the person making it has some experience you can get past the parts that are left out. There is no instruction on how to connect each row and then begin each new row. I also had a question about the hook size. I used a 5mm and it is huge! My 5mm is also an HTC. Is that different for you?
    I really do love the hat and will try again, I’m just not sure if I should change the amount of stitches or change the size of hook. Any suggestions?

    1. Hello Kelly, thank you for your feedback. I used a 5 mm hook, that should be a H indeed. That worked well for me with the worsted weight yarn I used.
      In the beginning of the pattern I mentioned that each round is closed with a slip stitch in the first stitch of that round. I didn’t mention how to start each round, I did in the video tutorial. But of course I could put it in the written pattern.
      If the brim is to big, you could choose another amount of stitches, as long as they are dividable by four.
      I hope this was helpful!

    1. I’m sorry to hear that.
      In the video I also show how to begin a row with ch1 or ch3. That part is written in the beginning of the pattern, but not in every row. So it may seem different, but the video shows what you have to do in the rows.

  8. I agree that this is very confusing. For example, in your written pattern for Round 2 of the hat you say to do 2 SC, skip next stitch Ch 1, 1 SC all around. However, in the video you do a SC in 3 stitches, then Ch 1 and skip a stitch and then start that again. If someone who has been able to figure this pattern out that is English speaking could re-write this pattern so that it makes sense it would be great!

    1. Thank you for your comment! I rewrote the pattern, so it matches the video tutorials. I also used a different way of writing it down and hope that’s helpful.

  9. Hello my fellow crocheters! I rewrote the pattern so it matches the video tutorials. There are no changes in the pattern. I really hope it’s not so confusing anymore. I used a way of writing that I found in an English crochet book.
    I also noted that you can make the brim shorter if you like. Just make sure you can divide the number of stitches by four. Thank you all for your feedback, it’s nice you’re trying to help. I appreciate the effort and wish you a lot of fun making this bun beanie!
