18 inch Doll Winter Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern

By | February 8, 2015

Free #crochet pattern for an #AmericanGirl doll winter hat embellished with a cute flower.
I designed this pretty winter hat as a Christmas present for my daughter.  The hat was rather plain on its own, but a simple crocheted flower is just the thing to jazz it up a bit. I thought I would put this free crochet pattern online so others could make it too.  It works up really quickly and is a great pattern for beginning crocheters!  Maybe you could use it to teach your daughter or granddaughter to crochet 🙂

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in cream (for the hat) and your choice of color for the flower

  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors

Abbreviations used

  • sc – single crochet
  • dc – double crochet

Instructions:

The hat is worked in a round. Do not join rounds unless noted. Use a safety pin or stitch marker to keep your place.

Round 1: Ch 2, 12 sc in 2nd ch from hook (12)

Round 2: sc in each st around (12)

Round 3: 2 sc in each st around (24)

Round 4: sc in each st around (24)

Round 5: * sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around. (32)

Round 6: sc in each st around (32)

Round 7: sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st. Repeat from * around. (40)

Rounds 8-12: sc in each st around (40)

Round 13: * sc in next 8 sts, sc next 2 sts tog. Repeat from * around. Join. (36)

Round 14: * ch 3, skip next st, sl st in next st. Repeat from * around. Join in first st. Finish off.

Too Small? Go to a Bigger Crochet Hook.
If you make the hat and find it is too tight, as one person commented, try going up to the next size hook. Everyone crochets with different tension so you may need to adjust the hook size for best fit.

Flower Embellishment

Work in rounds for this pattern. Do not join.

Round 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook (6 sc)

Round : 2 sc in each st around (12 sc)

Round : * Sl st in next st, (sc, dc, tc, dc, sc) in next st *. Repeat from * around. Join in initial sl st. (6 petals)

Finish off. Sew a button in the center of the flower. Sew flower to hat, referring to photo for placement.

When I crochet, I use a yarn holder to ensure my yarn stays clean and tangle-free. The yarn feeds out the hole at the top. It saves so much hassle!
