Rainbow Gay Pride Striped Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern for Teen Womens  Men sizes

 This hat was a special request from a loved one and a favorite project of mine for what it stands for.  The loved one wanted a set of gay pride hats to where with a fellow attendee to our local Gay Pride parade later this month.  I am honored to be a part of their day and was so happy to make the hats for them that I pushed more than a few projects aside to design this up asap.  They promised me lots of pictures from the day so I can’t wait to see them. :)  This is a very beginner friendly double crochet hat pattern and works up really fast. I made them both in a day of working at them here and there. Happy crafting!

Arthritis Awareness Curly Pigtail Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (15)

I decided to make myself some fun hats to wear with or without my newly acquired wigs since I have been losing my hair.  I came up with this idea for a blue curly pigtail hat to wear for World Arthritis Day or just for fun.  I will be making some in different hair colors for some small children as requested by their parents.  I’ve had several adults ask me to make this for them as well. :) Since I really do hate the sewing together part of hats, I designed it so each pigtail is in one piece versus each curl being a separate piece to sew on.  I think it’s a great project for beginners.  It looks a lot more complicated than it actually is to make. Happy crafting!

Bow (Make 2):  using purple contrast yarn

Curly Pigtails (Make 2): using main color blue yarn

First Curl

Second Curl

Sl st in next ch now, leaving the rest of the ch unworked for now ch 27. Place 3 dc in the 3rd ch from hook, then make 3 dc in each of the following 23 ch and make 2 hdc in last ch before making a sl st back in to foundation chain in the next ch from start of curl.

Third Curl

Sl st in next ch now, leaving rest of the foundation ch unworked for now, ch 22.  Starting in 3rd ch from hook, place 3 dc in 3rd chain and in each of the following 18 ch.  In last ch before foundation chain, make 2 hdc before sl st back in to foundation chain in ch after the starting one from start of curl.

Fifth Curl

For the fifth curl, sl st in next ch now, leaving rest of ch unworked for now, ch 17.  Make 3 dc in 3rd ch from your hook, 3 dc in following 13 ch and 2 hdc in last ch before you sl st back in to foundation chain in ch next on chain.

Sixth Curl

For the sixth curl, sl st in next ch before leaving rest of ch unworked for now and ch 17.  Make 3 dc in 3rd ch from your hook, 3 dc in following 13 ch and 2 hdc in last ch before you sl st back in to foundation chain in ch next on chain.

Leave a long enough tail on your pigtail in order to be able to securely sew it in to place on your beanie hat during assembly before you cut the yarn, pull it through and place it to side until needed.

Repeat process for your second pigtail.

This size pigtail will work great on youth through adult sized hats.  For toddler sized hats, do the following:

First Curl

Starting off to make a ch of 23. In 3rd ch from hook, place 3 hdc and place 3 hdc in each of the following 15 ch. In next ch place 2 hdc. Sl st back in to the next ch in the  foundation chain.

Second Curl

Sl st in next ch now, leaving the rest of the ch unworked for now ch 16. Place 3 hdc in the 3rd ch from hook, then make 3 hdc in each of the following 12 ch and make 2 hdc in last ch before making a sl st back in to foundation chain in the next ch from start of curl.

Third Curl

Sixth Curl (Optional – if you are doing newborn to 3 month size, you may want to eliminate either the sixth or second curl to make the pigtails less overwhelming in relation to hat)

For the sixth curl, sl st in next ch before leaving the last ch unworked for now and ch 10.  Make 3 hdc in 3rd ch from your hook, 3 hdc in following 6 ch and 2 hdc in last ch before you sl st back in to foundation chain in ch next on chain.

Leave a long enough tail on your pigtail in order to be able to securely sew it in to place on your beanie hat during assembly before you cut the yarn, pull it through and place it to side until needed.

Repeat process for your second pigtail.

 

Arthritis Awareness Curly Pigtail Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (3) Finishing off:

Take the tail left on one of your curly pigtails and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it on to the top side of your beanie hat. You can see where I placed my own. If you want your pigtails to hang longer than hat, place lower on hat, if you like it equal or shorter to length of hat, place further towards the top.  Once secure, pull your yarn to the inside of the beanie and fasten off.  Repeat process for the second pigtail.

Next take the tail left on one your purple (or desired color) hair bows and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew it to the top of one attached curly pigtails on hat. Again you can reference my pictures on where I placed my own.  I like to fold the center of my bows in half and place a few back / forth stitches to help them retain that shape before sewing it on to my location.  I like how the bows look when narrowed in the center but that is totally optional and up to your own preferences. I like to do this step on top of the pigtails that are already attached to beanie as a double step to secure the pigtails to the hat with the bow. :)

Once you have it sewn in to place, pull your yarn to the inside of hat before fastening off.  Now repeat process for second bow.

Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed throughout assembly process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.
All done!  Now you have one completed curly pigtail hat!  I love mine. I even wore it to go to the emergency room on Paint the World Blue for Arthritis Day. Boy did it get a lot of attention and kept the smiles going around. :)

Head Full of Daisies Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

There were four students being narrator’s in the classroom play. I didn’t want them to feel left out on the costume hats I made all the actors in the play so I went with nature related hats.  This pattern is really quick and simple as I was in a time crunch.  It is definitely beginner friendly. All you have to know is how to work in the round. Link below to instructions if you don’t know how to use magic circle. P.S. I love daisies 😀

Head Full of Daisies Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Pink Yarn for Beanie Hat main color or desired hat color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
White Yarn for daisy petals
Yellow / Gold Yarn for center of daisies
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Small amount of fiberfill stuffing

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
ch-1 sp – chain 1 space
dc – double crochet 
Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Youth Sized (Age 3-10 years old) Double Crochet Beanie  Hat Pattern which you can find here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color yarn
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice

Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your own head full of daisies beanie hat!

 Note: If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size.

Making Daisies:
Round 1: Starting with yellow / gold yarn in a magic circle ch 1 before placing 12 sc. Pull circle closed and sl st in the top of the first sc in round. (ch 1 does not count as a st) (12 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing *1 sc in st, ch 1 * and repeat process around until you are back at beginning. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. ( 12 sc, 12 ch-1 sp) Fasten off your yellow / gold yarn.  I leave a short tail on mine to use it to attach the daisy in place during assembly process.
Round 3: Taking your white yarn (or other flower color if you so desire) and sl st in to the one of the ch-1 sp. Ch 12 before sl st back into same ch-1 sp, *sl st in to next ch-1 sp, ch 12 before sl st back in to same ch-1 sp* repeat this process until you sl st back in the original ch-1 sp.
Leave tail long enough to attach your daisy to hat once all are completed if you fastened off the yellow/ gold completely in previous step and want to secure it with the white yarn. If you already left tails from flower center fasten off white.

Repeat this pattern with rest of daisies until you have:
Teen – Adult : 6 daisies
Toddler – Child / Youth:  4 daisies
Newborn to 1 year old:  4 daisies done with a “G” hook instead of “J” hook pattern calls for above.

Finishing off:
Place your daisy flowers on the hat where you want them situated. I often pin mine in place to get a good feel of the end result before I start tying them on.  With these just a few double knots and loops through to secure it works out just fine.  Not a lot of stitching required.  Once you have secured all your flowers in place, turn the hat inside out and finish off all left over tails or ends of yarn. Turn right side out again.

All done!  You have one Head Full of Daisies Hat to show off.  I’m not normally a girly girl but I love how this one turned out.

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how it looks worn and from different directions when completed:

Jordan’s Pink Angels Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Pink Yarn for Beanie Hat and I used it for J as seen in picture above-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
Red yarn for heart
White Yarn for angel wings
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
sctog – single crochet two st together
dc – double crochet 
hdc – half double crochet

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my Easy Peasy  Pre-Teen / Teen / Women Double Crochet Beanie Pattern which you can find here as a foundation for the project.  Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size you want for your project.

Hat Base:
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice. Once finished put it to the side until you are ready to attach applique.

Heart : Using Red (or other color you want for heart) yarn with “J” crochet hook
The heart I made by this tutorial for Medium sized heart (2 rounds) by HeloiseV Crochet.
(Note: Make sure you leave an extra long tail at the end. This will be used in finishing steps below.)

Angel Wings (Make 2) : Using white yarn with “J” crochet hook
Round 1: Chain 9. Sc in second chain from hook and continue making one sc per chain until end.  Ch 2 and turn. (8 sc)
Round 2: For this row, dc once in first two st, hdc in next 3 st, sc in next st and sctog last two st.  Ch 1 and turn. (7 st total).
Round 3: For this row, sc in first two st, hdc in next 3 st, dc in last two st. Ch 3 and turn.  (7 st total)
Round 4: Sl st in first st, *ch 3 then sl st in next st* repeat * until at end of starting corner. Ch 1 and rotate piece so you are working at back end of Round 1.
Round 5: (Note: This is an optional round. I like the more finished look with my wings.) Sc in first sc and each sc across (8 sc). Pull through.

(Tip: Make sure you leave an extra long tail at the end. This will be used in finishing steps below.)

Letter J or whatever letter you choose (in matching main color to beanie base – in my case hot pink). For my “J” I just single crocheted a chain the approximate length I wanted to make the J on the heart. For this one shown in pictures it was a chain of 9.
Then just use your tapestry (large eye yarn) needle to secure it in the finished place on top of the heart. This is an optional step that you can exclude from your project if so desired. 

Finishing off:
To attach the wings to the heart, overlap them slightly behind heart before using needle to pull through and make a few stitches with your starting tail. It doesn’t have to be much or long as it is just to keep them about where you want them to attach to hat.

Tip: If your wings seem to be too tall or fat, pull on outermost corner, diagonally. This will stretch out the wings making them shorter and longer.

Now place your appliques on top of the beanie where you want them to be on the finished project.

Tip: If you want to, you can use clothing pins or safety pins to hold them in place during your stitching. I tend to pin mine in place with some straight pins on to my Styrofoam model head. I’m a bit of a planner..

Taking your end tail from one wing, work on sewing a simple stitch around the perimeter of the wing through the beanie with your tapestry needle. Pull end through and finish off.

Using tail end from other wing duplicate what is done in first wing but in a mirror image of the location of the first one with tapestry needle. This is where using those pins can come in handy so they don’t move about on you. 😉 Pull end through and finish off.

Taking the last end tail hanging from your applique, for the heart, thread tapestry needle and secure heart in place on to beanie.

Just finish off and cut off extra lengths. You are ready to go!

Here are some pictures to show how this beanie looks worn from different directions once fully assembled:

Giant Daisy Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Left Side View

I adore daisies in general so a giant daisy is what popped in to my head to use for the base of the Pay Attention hat my mother requested to wear in her classroom when she wants the students to listen and not talk.  I will modifying this pattern to add a giant colorful butterfly at her request but this pattern is for the giant daisy on top of the beanie.  I was pretty happy with how it turned out minus some of my horrible sewing skills to anchor it in to place. My hands really hate the sewing in part.  Happy crafting!

Round 4: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in first st and in each of the following st in round. (18 sc)
Pull yarn through leaving a long enough tail to secure your daisy center on to the top of attached daisy in assembly process before cutting off yarn.

Giant Daisy:

Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 1(does not count as a st) before making 12 sc in circle.  Pull loosely closed so that ends touched but not pulled fully closed or tightly.  Sl st in to the top of the first st in the round. (12 sc) *This will be flower base you will branch your petals off of.
Round 2:  Ch 1, sc in 1st st, *chain 1, sc in next* repeat around to end of row. Sl st to top of 1st st in the round. (12 sc and 12 ch-1 sp)
Round 3: Starting with 1st ch-1 sp, sl st into space before creating a *chain of 17. Starting with the 4th ch from the hook work 1 tc in each of the following st until you are back at flower base working 1 sc into the last st before base. Sl st back into ch-1 sp you left off at. Sl st  into next ch-1 sp.* Repeat from * process around in each ch-1 sp until you are back at beginning. Sl st in to the base of the first st in 1st petal.
Round 4:  Ch 1, then working around the whole flower place 1 sc in to each st around and putting 3 sc in the end of each petal to round them out.
Pull yarn through leaving an extra long tail to attach it to beanie.

Assembling:

Daisy: Using your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle and the long tail left from daisy in previous step, sew your daisy on top of your beanie hat.  I centered mine right on the center of round 1 circle at top of hat and it worked out pretty well there for me.   Once you have fully secured it to the hat, pull yarn through to inside of hat before fastening off. It’s up to you on how far down you want to sew the daisy.  For mine I sewed down each petal about 1/3 of the way, back up to flower base, then down next petal etc.

Daisy Center: Take the yarn tail that you left off for assembly on the yellow daisy center and using your yarn needle start stitching in to place over the center circle of your daisy flower. About halfway through stitching this into place start adding small amounts of fiberfill stuffing to give your flower a more 3D appearance. Once you have secured it fully in place and stitched closed, pull yarn through to inside of hat before fastening off.

There you go. If you followed all the steps your giant daisy crochet hat should be complete and ready to wear!
