Pointed Hats

Crochet

I made pointy hats this Christmas season from my brain. This pattern is involved, but simple. I think anyone can make it. But it's got a LOT of instructions. I made a similar type of hat on a knitting machine once upon a time. That pattern called it a "wazoo". This is not a wazoo. It's a lot shorter -- about 2'?


Unfortunately, I didn't figure the gauge on this one. Sorry. You're on your own.


Pointed Hat

Schweller

Supplies

  • Caron Simply Soft, 6 oz:
    • Blue Hat: 1 ball DK Country Blue (MC); 1 ball Blueberry (CC)
    • Red Hat: 1 ball Persimmon (MC); 1 ball Autumn Red (CC)
    • Both Hats: 1 ball Off White (White)
  • 5.00 mm/US H Hook

Terminology

This pattern is written using US English Crochet terms. Translations available upon request. Put requests in the comments section.

  • MC - Main Color
  • CC - Contrasting Color
  • ch - chain
  • dc - double crochet
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • fphdc - front post half double crochet
  • bphdc - back post half double crochet
  • sts - stitches

Notes

  • This hat is worked from the pointy tip to the brim
  • Color changes every 4 rounds
  • Hat is worked in joined rounds
  • Ch 2 at the beginning of a round NEVER counts as a stitch
  • Always put the first dc, hdc, or fphdc in the same stitch as you joined in from the previous round
  • If you plan on adding a tassel or pompom to the tip of the hat, leave yourself a 12" tail when starting the hat so you can attach the dangly awesomeness
