Shifted Rib Hat & Cowl Set | Free Crochet Patterns

This crochet toddler hat and cowl set pattern was designed especially for my little nephew Ianis, who came with his parents from a long distance to visit us.

My sister asked for a textured hat with multiple color stripes, so this is what I came up with.

Toddler wearing a pretty textured crochet hat and cowl set

I have made a cowl to match, following the same pattern (but starting with more stitches) and using the same color sequence.

I love how it turned up! Ianis looks so cute wearing his brand new crochet hat and cowl set! ♥

Shifted Rib Hat & Cowl

This crochet hat pattern is worked from the bottom-up, starting with a row of foundation single crochet stitches instead of foundation chains. This will make the edge of the brim more stretchy.

After reaching the desired number of foundation sc stitches, you will join with slip stitch into round and from there you will work in joined rounds.

The top of the hat will be shaped with some decrease rounds.

HAT SIZE

Toddler: 1-3 years
Hat height: 7 inches (17,80 cm)

The hat allowes 2 inch of stretch (negative ease) from the head size to the hat size.

Circumference: 18 inches (43 cm)

4 sts and 3 rounds = 1" × 1" (2,5 cm × 2,5 cm)

*to* repeat the sequence of the stitches between the two *

NOTES

  1. the ch1 and the ch2 at beginning of the rounds will not count as stitches
  2. Changing colors: at the end of the round, work the last stitch in the current color, then change to next color when slip stitching to join into round. Continue the next round with the new color.
    Do not cut yarn when changing colors! Carry the yarn color(s) not in use up, each round hold all the yarn strands not in use together and when joining into round slip stitch around them with the new color to prevent long loops.
  3. When working the decreases to shape the crown of the hat, make sure the decrease stitches are made tight. This will prevent having gaps.

Cut yarn leaving a tail that will be used to close to hole on top of the hat.

Closing the hole on top of the hat

Thread yarn needle with the yarn tail left at the end of the work, weave yarn through the top edge stitches at top of hat. Cinch together to close space, and fasten securely. Weave in all ends.

Closing the gap at the bottom of the hat

With the yarn tail at the beginning of the work, use the seamless join in the round to close the gap.

Make a yarn pompom using a small pompom maker, or a cardboard. Sew the pompom to the hat top.
