I made this for my 6 year old daughter, her head measures 21 inches around. All sizes are listed above.

Then add the band the same way as posted below, but with the band just go a size smaller on the hook size.

Video on how to do a Half Double crochet Hat:

Abbreviations: dc=double crochet sc=single crochet sl st=slip stitch ch=chain, hdc=half double crochet

Instructions:  J hook, ch 4, sl st, to form a ring.
rnd 1. ch 2 (count as one hdc), work 9 hdc in the ring, sl st. (10 hdc)
rnd 2. ch 2, work a hdc in the same stitch as the ch 2, then work 2hdc in each stitch around, Slip Stitch (start to use a marker and work without a chain 2) (20 hdc)
rnd 3. *work a hdc in the next stitch, 2hdc in the next stitch, *repeat around, continue around, no slip stitch or chain, (I would use a marker so you can keep track of your increased rounds) (30 hdc)
rnd 4. *work a hdc in the next 2 stitches, 2hdc in the next stitch, *repeat around, continue around. (40 hdc)
rnd 5. *work a hdc in the next 3 stitches, 2hdc in the next stitch, *repeat around, continue around. (50 hdc)
rnd 6. *work a hdc in the next 4 stitches, 2 hdc in the next stitch, *repeat around, continue around. (60 hdc)

rnd 7. *work a hdc in each stitch around,*repeat until you hat measures 8 inches long, (will be longer on shorter for a bigger or smaller size head, see above for sizes),

Finish off with a slip stitch.

Band: 

Band: 

With White yarn slip stich your white yarn. Hdc in the same stitch as the sl st, then hdc around, sl st.

Next Round in the band: With Blue yarn, sl st blue yarn, hdc in the same stitch as the sl st, *work 2 hdc in the next hdc, hdc in the next hdc, *Repeat around, (work with out a slip stitch now.)

Next Round: *Work a hdc in each hdc around, *Repeat around

Next Round: *Work 2hdc in the next hdc, work a hdc in the next 3 hdc, *Repeat around

Next 3 Rounds:  In the next 3 rounds, *Work a hdc in each hdc around in the next 3 rounds.

Last Round: With White yarn, sl st with your white yarn, sc in the same stitch as the slip stitch, sc in each hdc around, Now Fasten off and Weave in the ends.

The Top of the Hat: 

This will make the dent to make it look like a cowboy hat. At the center beginning part of that in Round 1, Start there, and on both sides go to the end of Round 3. Now take both sides of end of Round 3 and fold it together and Sew it together. Sew it together about 4 – 5 times to secure it,  just like the pictures above. Then fasten off and Weave in the ends.

Curl the ends with your hands of the band to make it look more like a cowboy or cowgirl hat!

    I just used blue red heart 4 ply yarn, Im sure most yarns will work ass long as its a little stiff so it stands up more.

  2. Dawn says:

    Hi there. Love the hat. I am working on it now and had a question. In your abbreviation notes you have a hdc2tog. Is that in the pattern and I am missing it or not? Thanks!

  3. joyce says:

    “At the center beginning part of that in Round 1, Start there, and on both sides go to the end of Round 3. ” does that mean to fold in half and sew from round 3 (left) to round 3 (right) across top? I have tried several different things and am not satisfied. love the hat though….. am making a mother – daughter set!

  4. amray2007 says:

    yes, once you stop the increases, after a few rounds it will take shape, how far are you and what size are you doing?

  5. Karon says:

    Thank You! I used baby yarn, 2 strands to make it stiff, in pink with blue mint trim to match the boots I made. It’s almost finished!!! Just have 3 more rounds and the trim and to make the dent in top. It’s for my granddaughter due March 28th.

  6. Gaga says:

    Would you or anyone know how to do this by loom knitting it? I haven’t crocheted much, just single..if so would you have a pattern?

  7. Kathy says:

    I’m making size h hook. Trying to finish top by hooking like instructed but it doesn’t seem to finish to put on head. Not way picture looks. Any suggestions?

  8. amray2007 says:

    hmm, I would say pinch the sides together and sew them together on top like the directions say, This will make the dent to make it look like a cowboy hat. At the center beginning part of that in Round 1, Start there, and on both sides go to the end of Round 3. Now take both sides of end of Round 3 and fold it together and Sew it together. Sew it together about 4 – 5 times to secure it, just like the pictures above. Then fasten off and Weave in the ends.

    Curl the ends with your hands of the band to make it look more like a cowboy or cowgirl hat!

    I’ve tried this 8 times, I cannot get the starting,,it turns into a hat too soon, maybe the yarn is too thick, it was a ball that was in a shopping bag oh yarn given to me. Thank you. Also what is video site, I can’t seem to find it. There are so cute,,your so talented.

  10. Frances Henshaw says:

    Hi
    The hat and the instructions were great. I used double yarn and F hook. It was tough to crochet but worth it with how stiff the hat sits. I wanted it to tie under the chin. So I braided the left over yarn and fed it through the band of the hat. Looks cool . Oh and it is camouflage. Thank You.
    The size didn’t turn out small I guess that is because of the double yarn #4.

  11. Kimberly says:

    Lmao@myself shaking my head when I got to row 7 on the hat I was measuring it all the way across and when I tried it on my daughter I’m like this is way to short to fit her then it dong on me to measure from the center not the whole length lol at least I figured it out and hope to have it finished tonight since tomorrow at my daughter school is cowboy/farmer day

  12. Gloria Yates says:

    Your hats are cute. I started crocheting adult cowboy hats about 24 years ago, that are shaped like a real Stetson. At the time I couldn’t find a pattern for anything like it, so I designed my own and I’m still using the same pattern after all these years. Love crocheting.

  13. Traci says:

    I’ve made this pattern in all sizes and it is a great pattern!! I am currently using this pattern to make a “hillbilly” hat!!!

  14. Cathrin says:

    I have tried to make a fedora and failed so many times. I can’t get the shape to look like it should but each time I made it it didn’t look as it should. There’s 2 designs on here. I hope I can follow your pattern. They were both adults sizes and I used markers to be sure I stop and increased where I should have a increase. I used a chunky weight wool so maybe that was my problem.

    Happy crochet

  15. Cathrin says:

    I’m having the same problem as Carmen did. I’m making the teen size to adult and it’s becoming to look like a beany does!

    Do I measure from the circle of the crown, or do I measure from one end to the other end?

    Not sure if I’m measuring the way u do.

    Thanks for your help

    Cathrin

  16. Cathrin says:

    Has anyone made a teen size? I really need help withe next step after the hat measures 8/12 inches,!

    Thanks

  17. amray2007 says:

    Sorry Its not working for you, did you get to the part where you curl it up, maybe if you get to that part it will look better? I did make this hat for my younger daughter so I havent tried it on a teen.

  18. Cathrin says:

    No I haven’t yet, just starting the rim by doing 2 s c in each stitch. Hopefully it will look like yours, How many rows should I make? Until it measures 21 inches or so?

    Cat24

  19. amray2007 says:

    I would follow the pattern the same way but use you the hook size that it calls for a teen.

  20. Cathrin says:

    I used the K hook size which is a 6:00. My hat got even bigger and the part where it should curl up, never did!

    What am I doing wrong???

  21. amray2007 says:

    When I made that hat I made it for my 6 year old daughter, so I try going down a hook size or two and see what happens

  22. Cathrin says:

    When u measure, exactly where do u measure from? From the centre hole to the bottom of the rim, or across from one side of the flat circle to the end of the circle, I’ve seen different ways of doing this, one was from the start of the flat circle where u do your increasing, the other way was to measure around the circumference of the hat. Totally confusing to me!

    Please help!!

  23. rachael says:

    Hi, i was just wondering if it is normal for my hat to look like a circle in the middle, but then the edges are starting to get wavy, and it will not sit flat? I am at rnd 5… does it start taking shape soon, or did i mess up somewhere?
