Crochet Snowbelle Trapper Hat

February 3, 2014

Crochet Hat

This was the first time I crocheted a hat, and I’m happy to say that it was easier than expected and just as cute as I hoped it would be. I don’t love wearing hats, but it’s been quite a winter, what with the Polar Vortex, and seemingly constant snow, so hats do come in handy.

You can see more about the pattern, including photos of the hat on someone’s head here, and you can purchase the pattern here on Ravelry. I was lucky to get a copy of the pattern when she was giving it away for free, but it’s only $4.00 to buy it, and I think it’s worth it. 

Pattern notes:

  • I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a size K crochet hook (one size larger than called for, but I usually do that because I crochet with a lot of tension).
  • The pattern is very detailed and I found it easy to follow.
  • She includes links for making the braided tassels and pom-poms. I had some trouble with the pom-poms, so I used the technique shown in this video (I wrapped the yarn around 3 fingers to make a smaller-sized pom-pom).
