Northern Exposure Hat, Free Crochet Pattern + Video



The Northern Exposure Hat is a lovely and easy to whip up hat that is full of gorgeous texture!  This hat is a perfect accessory that will take you from the early days of fall all the way into spring!  The hat is also topped with a (removable!) faux fur pom pom that gives it a luxurious and on trend look as well!

Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!

Materials:
  • 6.0 mm "J" crochet hook
  • 1 ball of Red Heart With Love (I used the "Berry Red" colorway)
  • 1 Faux Fur Pom Pom
  • 1 Button (The one I used is about an inch wide)
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape Measure

Sizing:
  • 9 inches tall
  • 21 inch circumference
  • 12 inches total height of hat with pom pom



Instructions:


Ch 30 (to change the height of your hat, any even multiple will work)

Row 1:  Work (1 sc, 1 dc) in the second chain from the hook.  *Skip a chain, then work (1 sc, 1 dc) into the next chain.  Repeat from * across until two chains remain.  Skip the next chain, then work a sc into the last chain.

Row 2:  Ch 1 and turn.  *Work (1 sc, 1 dc) into the first stitch (located in the center of the little "cluster" of stitches from the previous row).  Repeat from * across.  Work a sc 

Repeat row 2 until your rectangle measures about 18 inches long from starting edge.  If you need a different circumference for your hat, simply work more or less rows.

Fasten off leaving a long tail for closing the top of the hat later.  Turn inside out, then sandwich the two edges together and whip stitch together.  Using the long tail, work a running stitch along the top edge of the hat, then draw tightly to close shut.  Secure with a strong knot.  Weave in any ends then turn right side out.


If you'd like to add the faux fur pom pom, sew a button with a matching piece of yarn to the inside top of the hat.  Place pom pom at the top and run the elastic loop into the top of the hat.  Loop the elastic around the button to hold it in place.  You can remove it later if need be when you're ready to launder the hat.

Prefer a yarn pom pom?  Check out my tutorial below!



Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
