Crochet Puffy Hat with Flower- Free Pattern

Well, winter has really hit here in Colorado. We are enjoying 7 degree temperatures right now! I have been full on in Hat Making mode. It happens to me every year at about this time. When I look back through my Instagram feed, I can see that December and January are always full of hats and scarves! I have been loving the Super Saver Stripe Yarn by Red Heart. It is perfect for hats and scarves and changes colors for you so you can just crochet away! The color on this skein was called Parrot Stripe. I love the greens and the purples together! I went and picked up several different colors but this one was screaming to be made into a hat!

Anyways, on to the hat pattern!

For this pattern, you will need the following supplies:

Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Stripes– Parrot Stripe or other yarn you like, also Red Heart White for the Flower

Crochet Hook: H

Scissors and Yarn Needle

Terms: sc= single crochet, dc= double crochet, Puff Stitch (see below)

Puff Stitch: The Puff Stitch will need to be worked as follows: yarn over, pull up a stitch, yarn over, pull up a stitch, yarn over, pull up a stitch. You will have 7 stitches on your hook. Then, you yarn over and pull through all stitches, leaving one stitch on the hook. Then chain after each puff stitch to lock the stitch in.

This hat will fit an older child through an adult. The hat will take less than one skein of yarn.
