Men’s Hat Patterns

A lot of knitters and crocheters are people who have men in their lives that they love to make things for. But many of us are attracted to fun pompoms, complicated stitch patterns, and slouchy hats that the dudes in our lives would just not be into. And I’m guilty of this, too. So if you’re looking for some simple, manly hat patterns, you’ve come to the right place. And most of these are crochet! I often lean towards knitting patterns when knitting for men because the fabric ends up being thinner, which is what Mr Evangelist prefers, so I know what a challenge it can be for crocheters to find a good men’s hat pattern. But there are plenty included here! Check them out and try one today!

Who says men’s hats have to be plain? This textured Arrowhead Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern is a great example of a manly hat pattern with a lovely stitch pattern. This pattern comes in 6 sizes, from baby to adult large, so you can make one for the whole family! Add a pompom if you like and it’s a stylish hat for anyone! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE ARROWHEAD BEANIE PATTERN.

And who says men and boys can’t wear a slouchy hat? Check out this lovely Portland Slouchy Hat and Cowl Set Crochet Pattern. It mimics a knit seed stitch and has a lovely slight slouch to it. It comes in 5 sizes from 6 months to adult, so again, you can make this set for anyone in the family! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE PORTLAND SLOUCHY HAT AND COWL SET CROCHET PATTERN.

Who says men’s hat patterns have to be solid colours? The Big Bay Beanie Crochet Pattern is a great multi-coloured pattern worked up with chunky weight yarn in 5 colours and it’s simple enough for a beginner/advanced beginner. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but for just a few bucks you can grab an easy-to-read, printable pdf pattern: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BIG BAY BEANIE CROCHET PATTERN.

Simple hats like the Basic Knit Beanie for Men and Boys Knitting Pattern is the kind of pattern I usually make for Mr Evangelist. He’s already got a pretty big head, so he doesn’t want to add the bulk of a thick and chunky hat to it. Also, while he’s trying to stay warm, sometimes those chunky hats make him too hot. He’s already pretty hot (woot woot!) so we don’t want to overdo it. 😉 The decreases on this knit hat pattern make a lovely swirled crown that sits nice and flat on the head. It’s a great guide to learning decreases. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BASIC KNIT BEANIE FOR MEN AND BOYS KNITTING PATTERN.

For a slightly textured ribbed crochet hat pattern, check out this Men’s Slouchy Knit-Look Crochet Hat Pattern. I love that it’s not super slouchy. That’s just the right amount of slouch for the men that I know. This is an intermediate crochet pattern in two adult sizes. It uses worsted weight yarn, so it’s a lovely project for some of that worsted weight yarn you have in your stash. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE MEN’S SLOUCHY KNIT-LOOK CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Fisherman’s Cap Crochet Beanie Pattern is such a classic pattern that you can’t miss out on it. It’s a perfect beginner pattern made with basic stitches, so if you’re just learning, this pattern is for you! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE FISHERMAN’S CAP CROCHET BEANIE PATTERN.

The Ribbed Wonder Crochet Hat Pattern is another super easy beginner crochet pattern for a classic simple crochet hat using chunky weight yarn. This works up quickly to make a timeless hat that the man in your life will love. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but I love to have a pattern I can print out, take with me and mark up as I go. For just a few bucks, it’s absolutely worth it! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE RIBBED WONDER CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Ripple Hat Crochet Pattern is simple to follow and comes in 4 sizes using under 100 grams of worsted weight yarn and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook.

Of course, if you’re really looking for a costume hat or a fun pattern for a little boy, this Knight Helmet Crochet Hat Pattern is a ton of fun. For those of us in cold climates, Halloween can be unpredictable, but it is usually chilly here, so a warm hat to wear out trick-or-treating is a great idea. And many little boys like to play pretend year-round, so a fun hat like this knight helmet can be made for Halloween and worn all winter long! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KNIGHT HELMET CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

The Lael Viking Hat Crochet Pattern is another great hat that can be used as a costume or simply a fun hat to keep your little one’s head warm. It comes in three sizes, but it makes a stretchy hat that can be worn by multiple head sizes. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE LAEL VIKING HAT CROCHET PATTERN.

I know I usually focus on knit and crochet patterns in this blog, but I came across this Leather Bowler Hat Pattern and Video Tutorial and thought it was so cool that I had to share it with you all.

10 Crocheted Hats Patterns to Love

With all the knitting I’ve been doing lately, I think it’s time to bring back some crochet patterns for this week’s pattern round up. Crocheting hats is so satisfying because they can often be whipped up in a couple of hours and you have a gorgeous, handmade, warm beanie to chase away the winter chill. So, if you’re needing some trendy inspiration for your next crocheted beanie, check out this fabulous collection of beautiful textured crochet patterns.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I’m loving the texture on this Jackson Beanie Crochet Pattern; it looks a little reminiscent of seed stitch, almost knit and purled, don’t you think? And I’m loving the deep jewelled tone of the yarn Jennifer of Laine and Lotus chose for this hat! A beginner crocheter could make this hat, which is sized to fit the average adult woman’s head. You know you’re going to want to make one of these beauties.

The Winter Rose Beanie Crochet Pattern was designed by my friend Jasmine at OceanPeakDesigns. This month, 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this hat pattern will be donated to NSW Fire Fighters & WIRES Wildlife Rescue in Australia (where Jasmine is from). I love the delicate texture on this pattern and I can’t wait to crochet it up! I have some We Are Knitters Petite Wool leftover from another project that is just asking to be made into a hat like this!

Do you like that ombre thing? The Ombre Magic Crochet Hat Pattern may just be the right hat for you! This cute hat comes in 7 sizes, from baby to adult with long ridge lines and a clever mix of two contrasting yarn colours create a beautiful dynamic hat with a lovely ombre effect. This hat is made with 2 strands of DK weight yarn held together and it’s a great way to use up those partial balls of yarn you’ve got kicking around! Make one for the whole family with a large range of sizes!

I was really excited to find this Megan Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern because now it means I don’t have to come up with a crochet pattern that mimics my Tufted Toque Knitting Pattern that I released yesterday. The diamond-shaped tufts add luxurious texture, so if you liked the Tufted Toque pattern I released yesterday, but you’re a crocheter and not a knitter, you can still make one remarkably similar!

The Cruise Cabled Beanie Crochet Pattern is a classic beanie with a stretchy brim. It’s worked from the bottom up with decreasing within the cables to close beautifully at the crown so it can be worn with or without a pom. This pattern is an intermediate/advanced level pattern and comes in 5 sizes. And don’t you just love that brim? So adorable. Also, I still love buttons on the brim of hats. So fun. But a cute faux-leather tag would look just as good.

Check out the stitch definition on this Remy Crochet Beanie Pattern! This easy level pattern comes with 6 sizes and is crocheted with worsted weight yarn. To get that stitch definition though, you’ll definitely want some roving yarn or another yarn with great stitch definition! Ruby Webbs has an excellent assortment of beautiful crochet patterns and you can even get a pattern for a matching pair of mittens!

The Market Puff Beanie Crochet Pattern comes in 6 sizes and has those gorgeous bobbles which make for a fun and interesting texture, with a definite handmade custom style. This hat is worked top-down with an easy brim and they make up quickly to sell at markets or craft fairs. And if you have a bunch of worsted weight yarn to use up, this is the perfect pattern for you!

The Market Waffle Hat Crochet Pattern is another crochet pattern from KathysCrochetCloset that is perfect for makers who sell at craft fairs. It’s written for three sizes: adult, child and toddler. They make perfect Mommy & Me hat sets, which are super popular at markets and craft fairs. Everyone’s going to want one of these gorgeous textured hats!

The Lark Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern makes a beautiful, cozy knit-look beanie that’s sure to become your new favourite hat! This beanie features a unique stretchy faux-stockinette stitch pattern and a squishy ribbed brim, with easy short-row decreases for the perfect shape! It works up quickly with less than 11 yards of bulky yarn and makes a great last-minute handmade gift! I love how this stitch pattern closes up the holes of crochet and makes a nice tight knit-like fabric! Definitely worth a try!

The Hanover Hat Crochet Pattern is a gorgeous hat that is styled for both men and women! This hat features an amazing finished texture that provides great WOW factor! The perfect hat for all the #4 yarn you have in your yarn stash. Works up very quickly with an amazing result that won’t disappoint. I love the unique brim and the textured body of this hat! And don’t forget a fabulous faux fur pompom! I love the extra-large pompoms by GingerSnapHandmade. They are gorgeous and luxurious!

I hope you’ve found your next crocheted beanie pattern to make. There’s still plenty of winter weather ahead of us here where I live, so an investment of an hour or two of crocheting up a gorgeous hat is well worth it! Grab one of these lovely crochet hat patterns today or pin it for later!

Warm Winter Weather Wear

Warm Winter Wear

Well, the winter weather has arrived, at least where I live. It’s not too bad just yet, so don’t mistake my announcement for complaining. But it is definitely time to break out the knit and crochet accessories to keep ears, necks, heads and hands warm this season. If you’re looking for a pattern to make for a gift to give this season or to keep yourself warm this winter, I’ve got a great collection of fashionable knit and crochet accessory patterns for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off, these twisted ear warmers are all the rage this year. Great for keeping your ears warm while not messing up your top knot or ponytail. The River Ear Warmer twisted headband crochet pattern is a great and simple crochet pattern that a beginner could handle. The beauty of these little projects is that they only take a couple of hours and a partial skein of yarn. They make great stash-busting projects!

The Woven Headwarmer crochet pattern has a little more texture and has that lovely bowtie twist to finish it off! Super cute and what a fun pattern to highlight a soft and luscious yarn. If you only have one skein of beautiful and expensive yarn, this is your project. You can make up a few of these with that one gorgeous skein and have gifts for your closest friends!

Buffalo plaid is still super cute and trendy and it’s so super fun to see three colours of yarn come together to form this fun pattern. Don’t you love the large wooden button on this Buffalo Plaid Crochet Cowl Pattern? I love fun finishing touches like that. It makes a piece look so much more professional!

Here’s another gorgeous cowl to try out: the Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern is a textured granny-stitch style cowl that would be a great welcome back to crochet project for those whose grannies taught them the simple granny square and that’s all they really remember. This would also be a great pattern to highlight some special yarn you’ve been saving.

Check out the fringe on this June Berry Cowl crochet pattern… with buttons as well! I love the gorgeous texture on this cowl pattern and fringe is so on-trend right now. It’s a great time to get working on this beautiful scarf, for you or for a friend!

If you’ve always wanted to try cables, the Cascades Big Knit Scarf Pattern is a great first cable project. With bulky yarn and just one big braid cable through the scarf, it’s a great project to practice and learn. Just a tip: if you’re just learning, using a light coloured yarn will help you to more easily see your work and make it easier to fix any mistakes.

If you have a little more experience knitting, you might like to try knitting yourself this Chunky Mittens Knitting Pattern to keep your fingers warm this winter. These chunky mittens look so warm and cozy! My fingerless mittens just aren’t cutting it anymore; I’m going to need to get me some tips!

Ooooh! Or here’s another cute mittens pattern! The Bit of Honey Mittens Knitting Pattern has a sweet honeycomb textured stitch pattern that is subtle and gorgeous! This is a great project to spend a little more time and care with, but has a great finished result!

Don’t worry: I haven’t left the crocheters’ hands out in the cold. The Cadence Mittens crochet mitten pattern is a lovely textured crochet mitten pattern with a cable-like textured stitch to practice something new for crocheters looking for a little more of a challenge.

Now, THIS is a fun hat pattern! I love seeing the animal print that is making its way into knitwear! Check out this super fun Animal Attraction Leopard Print Pompom Hat knitting pattern! What a fun winter accessory!

And back to plaid. This one is a knitting pattern, though, and only made with 2 colours of yarn. The Super Bulky Buffalo Plaid Hat knitting pattern is a quick knit made with super bulky yarn; don’t you just love it with a big faux fur pom on top?

And while not exactly a wearable accessory, this Textured Christmas Crochet Stocking Pattern is a great project to get working on this time of year. It would make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one! Don’t you just love the beautiful bobble stripes? I love the natural coloured yarn used here, but I think any solid colour would look delightful in this pattern!

So there’s this week’s collection of fabulous patterns to knit and crochet. Making them and wearing them will keep you warm all season! Pick up a pattern today and find some yummy yarns to make one of these patterns. Or pin it for later!

Chunky Crocheted Hats

Last week I shared a bunch of chunky knit hat patterns, but just so I don’t leave my hookers out of the loop, here’s a great group of winter beanies (toques for us Canadians) for you to start working on. Hats make great handmade gifts because they work up quickly and usually take just one skein of yarn. And you have plenty of time before the busy gift-giving season to work up some of these gorgeous patterns!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

The beautiful textured beanie, called The Tamarack Beanie comes out so warm and cozy! It’s the perfect winter hat to add texture and warmth to any outfit.

The Ella Beanie is another lovely textured hat suitable for every day. It is crocheted using Aran wool, so it will keep you warm from icy winter winds. It comes in 7 different sizes, from newborn to adult, so you can easily make one of these lovely toques for the whole family! Mommy and me hats, here we come!

Can you tell that I’m super into these textured toques with faux fur pompoms? There are so many options out there, including this lovely Maple Beanie Crochet Pattern with this sweet bobble stitch textured stripe.

Here’s another gorgeous textured crocheted beanie pattern for you, the Shell Super Chunky Winter Hat, with this lovely shell stitch pattern. Don’t you just love it in this gorgeous yellow! I’m so glad this colour is still on-trend; I love it so much!!!

The Alpine Beanie is another lovely textured crochet hat pattern. I love how it works up in a self-striping yarn. It looks like these are made with two yarns held together, so it’s a great way to incorporate a couple of different colours and a fantastic way to use up some worsted weight yarn!

The Brooklynn Cables Beanie is a fantastic cabled crochet beanie pattern. If you’re a crocheter and have always been a little jealous of the gorgeous cables on knitted items, well, here’s your pattern. The vertical stripes and the texture of this toque are just lovely!

If you have a little one on your make list, check out this adorable A Beary Cute Hat. It’s a quick and simple little pattern, with the addition of some super sweet little ears that would be just adorable on a new baby!

Of course, if you’re looking for something more basic, that you can put your own spin on, check out the Lincoln Park Beanie which includes 10 different sizes, using worsted weight yarn. This is a great pattern if you’re just learning to crochet or if you’re just starting to get into garments!

I hope you enjoy all these lovely cozy crocheted hat patterns, just in time to make them up for the toque/beanie season ahead (sweater weather, sure, but hats? definitely.) Pick up a pattern and start crocheting today or pin it for later!

Patterns to Warm Up With

Are you experiencing a polar vortex where you are? It’s still very cold here. I mean, it’s Canada. It’s the middle of winter, but still. I’m done with this weather. But it, apparently, is not done with us. Fortunately, I have a degree in yarn crafts, with an internet minor. So, we can solve this. Even if I had a degree in meteorology, I wouldn’t be able to change the weather, but with my fictitious degree in yarn crafts, I can change how I (and others) experience it. #takethatscience

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off, I’d like to introduce you to The Frost Beanie, designed by my friend Alicia from Lee & Evelyn (you’re my friend now, Alicia). I test-knit this little beauty of a beginner toque (Canadian for winter hat/beanie) for Alicia and it’s a lovely pattern, with great instructions for a seamless colour-change and it has been just re-released in sizes newborn to adult male! So, if you already purchased this adorable hat, you’ll get an update sent to you. If not, now you can get sizes for everyone! It knits up very quickly in a super bulky size yarn. I knitted up a couple of the kid sizes in a day!

The Frost Beanie in all sizes! Knit by @craftevangelist

I knit these beauties up in The Wool by We Are Knitters, but I would recommend experimenting with the more fitted versions she suggests. The thickness of the The Wool just doesn’t have the drape that other yarns do, but it’s sooo lovely and soft and the colours are to die for!

As it turns out, there are other results on Etsy when you search “Frost Beanie” including this sweet crochet pattern by Jennifer White Designs. These textured crochet patterns (especially with buttons) are so adorable and trendy. Pick one up and get crocheting: they’re so cute!

Of course, if it’s cold outside, you’re going to need something to keep your fingers warm and these Frost Lined Mittens are just the thing. The outer mitten is worked first, then stitches are picked up around the inside of the cuff and the lining is worked in the opposite direction. Once completed, the lining is tucked into the outer mitten. Looks like the perfect pattern to keep warm this polar vortex season.

Sometimes it’s a bit frosty in my office. They’ve tried to tell me it’s not air conditioning, but it’s cold air blowing out of the same vent that the air conditioning comes out of, so… it doesn’t much matter to me. It’s minus bajillion outside and there’s cold air blowing out of a vent in my office #I’llcallitwhateverIwantthanks. But perhaps, a pair of these Frost Fighters might help?

Back to hat patterns, though. I’m sure we all know that you lose most of your heat from your head, so hats are important. Check out this beautiful textured Winter Frost Chunky Beanie crochet pattern which is a gorgeous way to stay warm this polar vortex.

You probably underestimate how warm a scarf can keep you. But warm up your neck with this Frost infinity cowl and see how toasty you will be! You can drape it over your head to keep your head warm, too and keep the wind from your neck! With this beautiful textured knit pattern, it would make a lovely gift for a loved one, too!

Stay warm friends. Get making and keep yourself and your loved ones warm this polar vortex. If it’s above freezing where you are, just keep it to yourselves. The rest of us don’t need that in our lives. What can we do about it besides knit and never leave the warmth of our electric blankets?

Warm up with these frosty weather knit and crochet patterns. Perfect patterns to make to keep you and your loved ones warm during the polar vortex! #knit #crochet #patterns #knitting #knittingpatterns #crochetpatterns #winterhats #knitbeanie #knittoque #crochettoque #crochetbeanie #crochethat #knithat #knitmitts #crochetmitts #polarvortex #yarn #crafts #craftevangelist

Beautiful Beanies

Hats! Toques! Beanies! Winter Caps! Warmth for your head! Check out this wonderful collection of warm winter hats to knit and crochet! Time to get out the yarn and get working! Christmas is coming and these hats would make an awesome handmade gift that anyone would be delighted to receive!

I love this cabled Alpine Beanie Pattern. It looks knit, but it’s crochet! 

I’ve posted other plaid crocheted hat patterns before, but if you’re a knitter, this Pumpkin Pie Knitting Pattern is a great chunky knit hat for you to practice your plaid.

Check out this awesome diamond embellished Knit Regan Beanie pattern! Also a chunky knit, it would work up quickly! I love the colour choices in this example, too! Which colours would you choose?

Here’s another crocheted pattern, this Crochet Dandelion Slouch Beanie Pattern is worked up with a self-striping yarn, probably with a Caron Cake or something. So cute. I love this colour choice too!

The Toph Slouchy Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern looks almost surreal! As a relatively experienced knitter, I have no idea how I would begin to make this, so I would totally need to buy the pattern! I have about 5 or 6 patterns that I still need to make right now, so I’ll have to put this one on hold for now! Will you make it and show me?

There are so many creative ways to work colour into crocheted hats, like this Speckled Ridge Hat Crochet Pattern. I love the chunky pops of colour. And those yarn pompoms are super easy to make with a pompom maker. I love mine!

I’ve been meaning to learn this woven crochet stitch in this Crochet Hat Pattern! It looks so lovely in this hat! I want one!

Of course, not all of us have time to make it all, but you can still have a handmade Knitted hat with pompom, if you’re willing to part with a little more money! You get the finished work of a skilled craftsperson and none of the work! Sounds like a win to me! With the gift-giving season drawing ever closer, it’s time to get those orders in!

Here’s another great option for the time-crunched, the Ski Bunny Knit Hat. This one is a lovely chunky, cable-knit toque, perfect for the ski hill. How cute will you look skiing this holiday in this gorgeous beanie? 

Pick up a pattern and some yarn today and you might have a hat by tomorrow (if you’re fast)! Or pin it so you don’t forget (or share it with your sister so she can make you one… that’s what my sisters do).

Such a pretty collection of winter hat patterns to knit and crochet (even a couple you can just order if you don't knit or crochet)! #beanie #winterhat #toque #crochet #knit #patterns #yarn #crafts #craftevangelist
