19 Most Beautiful Free Crochet Hat Patterns- 2021

I have divided the hats into two sections: yarn crochet beanie patterns and below you will find crochet hat patterns made with bulky / super bulky yarn.


Most of my C2C projects were pretty big, but not this one! I thought a hat would be a nice short project with one of my favorite stitches.

Spiral Slouchy Hat

This Spiral Slouchy Hat uses Garnspiration’s Caron X Pantone braided yarn, where you get 5 colored strands of yarn in one fabric. This thread is a dream come true. It’s soft and pliable, and it glides very easily through my crochet hooks. I immediately went for the Ultraviolet Minerals color combination as it comes in the most amazing color combinations. However, you can easily mix and match the colors to your liking.

Velvet Crochet Beanie

The velvet crochet hat pattern is very easy to make and has a wonderful texture aside from the velvety soft texture of the yarn!
Do you feel the velvet madness? I grew up in the 90s and remember wearing velvet dresses especially on holidays and I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t wear it now!


Bernat Velvet yarn
J/6.00mm hook
Tapestry needle
Pom pom (optional)

Pattern Notes

Chain 3 begins while the main part of the hat counts as a stitch.
When making the hem, the beginning of chain 1 is NOT counted as a stitch.
Increase or decrease the number of lines for the corner edge to adjust the size. The number of lines must be a multiple of 3. I also recommend making the number of rows for the mouth 1 to 2 inches smaller than the circumference of the head for a nice and comfortable fit. As you decrease / increase the size, you may also need to decrease / increase the number of lines for the main hat part of the pattern.
In the main hat area we will turn our work after each tour. This is not always common, but it is needed to create the waffle shape in this model.

These super bulky crochet hats can be whipped in no time! While super bulky yarn is expensive, you don’t need a lot to crochet these hats!

Do you watch TV and notice something that is knitted or crocheted? Recently he drew attention to the different hats that the Olympians wear the most. Some are simple, others complex, but most likely machine-made. So what do you do if you don’t want to spend $ 100 or wait for someone to show up from an online store? You have set out to create your own hand-made knitting creation.
