Granny Stripe Hat

This post contains affiliate links.

This Granny Stripe Hat is my first of the Granny-Spiration Project.  (Read more about this below, and be sure to enter the giveaway!)  This is an easy hat to crochet and works up quite quickly.

I used an H hook and Caron Simply Soft.

A note about fit and size:  This is a slouchy hat.  My lovely model has a larger than average head circumference for her age.  This hat would properly fit teens and ladies.

Chain 5. Join.

Row 1  *Two dc, chain 1*around until there are six groups of 2dc.

Row 2  Crochet 2 groups of 2dc in each chain one space of previous row, make sure to chain one between each group. (12 groups of 2dc)

Rows 3 &4 Crochet 3dc in each chain one space, keeping the chain one between each group.

Row 5 Crochet 2 dc groups of three in each chain 1 space (always have a chain one between each group)

Row 6 - 10 3 dc groups in each chain with a chain 1 between each one.

Row 11 HDC around.

Rows 12 through 15 HDC in the third loop.  Finish off.

  1. Great hat! My compliments,

  2. Hello Rachel,
    why didn't I just wait untill I'd read your post?!
    I spent all last evening trying and frogging the hat for my cousin's daughter. It was past 10 p.m. till I finally was happy with it, but I didn't finish it till noon today.
    Could have saved me the trouble...
    Have a lovely evening,

  3. Ooo, those stripes are a great way to use up scraps! Very cool hat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
