Vintage Hat Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite things to buy when I head to the bookstore with Husband is crafting and crochet magazines. A few months ago I bought “Love of Crochet” magazine’s Fall issue and in it was a Vintage Hat pattern that I have used a ton of times already. I’m not kidding- I’ve made 7 of these hats already! They are SUPER easy and work up very quickly, so I can knock one out in under two hours, making them fantastic Christmas gifts.

While I can take no credit for this pattern (the designer is Amy Polcyn), I wanted to share it with you so that you may use it too! If you have a skein of yarn, a hook and two hours to spare, you can take away a really cute vintage inspired hat! For more info on Amy’s pattern, check Love of Crochet’s website. Below I have copied Amy’s instructions verbatim, but added a couple of notes in the materials section that I found handy as I made these hats! Hope you find them useful too!


  • 1 skein of yarn, light to bulky weight* (Unsure of your yarn’s weight? Check this helpful guide! Pictured above are three different weights of yarn so you can see what the different hats would look like!)
  • U.S. size H-8 to K-10 crochet hook (depending on which yarn you chose)
  • Stitch marker**
  • Yarn needle (optional)***
  • Scissors

*Bulky (like the red hat) is already a little difficult to work with in this pattern, so I wouldn’t recommend using anything bigger!

**I never have stitch markers laying around, so I usually just use a small scrap of contrasting yarn and tie it where I would have placed a stitch marker.

***You can use a yarn needle to weave in ends at the end of this project, but it’s also feasible to weave them in using your crochet hook!
