The original and best Owl Crochet Hat
If you are a crocheter, then this owl hat pattern is just for you!
The owl love continues, but this time the pattern is for all of my crochet friends! Yep, I’m ridiculously excited about releasing this new pattern. Ever since I released my knit owl hat pattern many lovely crocheters have been asking for a crochet version of that pattern. It’s taken a lot of love, but I have finally finished the Owl Hat Crochet Pattern. Cue the confetti!
Make Your Own Crochet Owl Hat
This crochet version is as true to the beloved knit version as I could make it. Just like in the knit version, the top portion of the crochet hat is a tighter stitch pattern than where the owls are. Then you have the Owls that stick out like a relief against the stitches in between each owl. I even kept the stitch count similar so that the spacing is similar. And it’s got a ribbed brim!
Ready to make your own crochet owl hat? First you’ll need to grab the pattern! Then keep reading for some pattern notes.
The crochet cables in this owl hat are a bit tricky, specifically the right twisting side of the cable. So you’ll need to have a bit of patience! First you can check out the pattern notes about the cables for some tips. And then make sure you watch the YouTube video here. Don’t worry, if you still have questions about the cables after reading the notes and watching the video you can leave a comment or send me an email! I’m always happy to help with patterns.
Now grab your crochet hook (size F/3.75mm to be exact), some medium weight yarn, get the pattern, and start stitching!
Crochet Owl Hat
This pattern uses single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), and front post double crochet (fpdc).
The pattern is worked in continuous rounds.
It might help to use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.
The cables are a bit tricky. The first cable on each round twists to the left and the skipped stitches are worked in front of the previous 2 stitches.
The second cable on each round twists to the right and the skipped stitches are worked behind the previous 2 stitches.
Skipped stitches are worked in order. Crochet the first skipped stitch first, then the second skipped stitch.
To create a tighter crochet, I am using a smaller hook than what is listed on the yarn. My yarn has a suggested hook of J-10/6mm. Using the 3.75mm hook a 4″x4″ swatch is 18 stitches and 21 rows.
You will need about 120 yard of yarn.
If you want to add button eyes, as in the picture, you will need 14 buttons. (There are seven owls.)
