Ombre Pop Beanie Free Crochet Pattern

Materials

  • Red Heart “Super Saver Ombre” (100% acrylic, aran size 4 weight, 482 yds per 10 oz): 1 skein or approximately 350 yards in color Spearmint
  • Suggested hook sizes: 7.5mm (larger hook) and J-10 [6mm] (smaller hook)
  • Needle (for weaving ends and seaming brim)

PomPom Maker

Thank you to Red Heart for providing the yarn used in this project.

Notes

Hat is worked top-down, in joined rounds.

Initial ch-2 at the beginning of each Popcorn round does not count as a stitch.

The hat is slouchy. If you prefer a tighter fit, you will need to work at a tighter tension and work fewer rounds, as desired.

I have seen a lot of hats made in Red Heart Ombre but the color changes so slowly that the hat looked like a solid color. I chose a popcorn for this hat to make use of as much yarn as possible so the color changes could actually be seen and it worked!

Gauge

After round 2, approx. 2″
After round 4, approx. 5″

Special Stitches

Popcorn (pop): Make 4 complete dc in space indicated, lift up the loop slightly of the last dc, remove hook, insert hook in first dc, pull slightly lifted loop through, tighten slightly.

Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc): Yarn over, insert hook to the side of the indicated stitch, move hook around the back of the stitch and out the other side of same stitch (hook is now in front of the work again), yarn over, pull loop through, [yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook] twice.

Back Post Double crochet (bpdc): Yarn over, with hook in back of work, insert hook to the side of the indicated stitch, move hook around the front of the stitch and out the other side of the same stitch (hook is in back of work again), yarn over, pull loop through, [yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook] twice.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
