This is my first time working in the round other than granny squares, which I guess doesn't really count. I really appreciate your hard work and that you shared all this free of charge, and that you keep answering questions and helping people out—you're the best!
Thanks for asking this, I was wondering the same thing. Pattern doesn't seem complete without that instruction! HI i love your pattern thank so much for sharing has any one had this problem i made the toddler preschool size and then made a month one and my month one ended up bigger im wondering if theres an error on the month when it says.
Hmmm, well if you changed the 8 to 4 then you would actually be adding more stitches in, making the hat even bigger…so I'm not sure what is going on. I also counted my stitches and the month has a 50 stitch count around where as the toddler hat has 54 stitches around so more stitches makes a bigger hat. Did you use different kinds of yarn in each hat? Sometimes that can cause hats to be slightly bigger or smaller.
Feel free to e-mail a photo of your hats and maybe I can get a better idea of the problem!
Making a Newborn hat as a photo prop for a photography friend. I'll have to share when she uses it. I really like the hint of extra thickness to it as a worsted weight yarn. But the Supplies section on all of these Owl Hat Patterns have no mention of the yarn for the nose. I'm assuming I could just use any yellow piece of scrap yarn in medium worsted weight, but I would still like to know what you used? I also used Vanna's Choice yarn for the nose!
I think the color is called Mustard. I figured it was mustard. I used a yellow that I had in my stash. I just tagged you with a photo of my finished product on my Facebook business page. I left out one row of Barley and inserted an additional contrast color row on my newborn hat for a photo prop. I just wanted you to know that I just made this, with a few alterations because i used homespun yarn , in maybe 6 hours today for my daughter's friend's birthday. I started it 7 hours ago, and in that time not only did I get it done to drop off before the party is over looonnngg party , but I also cooked and ate my breakfast, watch several hours of Coronation Street while doing it, and taught my daughter how to shave her legs!
I have made these in differant sizes and they all are too small for the size they are suppose to fit. Just wanted people to know. I felt bad to have to tell the little girl I would have to re make it larger. Glad you like the pattern! That is funny you said they were all too small because I just had someone e-mail me telling me they are too big! I will be sure to post gauge this week. Glad you were able to figure out what size you needed to go with. Im new to hat making and im trying to make this for my daughter…im just wondering about the ear flaps, how do you connect the second ear flap?
Sorry if this is a dumb questiong: Yes you just pull a loop through the stitch you want to start in and crochet as normal.
Love, love, love this pattern…my only problem is that I made the adult large, and it barely fits my 4 year old! I used H hook, worsted weight yarn, and was using dc not sc. Can't figure out why it's coming out so small! Does anybody have any suggestions? Hi Carrie, 3 others have had the same problem and it wasn't until after they sent me pictures that I was able to confirm they weren't using the DC stitch. If this isn't the problem then maybe I can detect what else may be going on! I will try to send you a picture in a bit. I'm definitely using DC stitches. Thanks so much for responding!
Please share if you figure out the issue…my child size will barely fit a doll. I followed pattern to a T, used the same yarn and H hook. So disappointed, the hat is absolutely adorable. I just sent you a photo of mine. I am having the same issue. Almost complete with the hat for my grand girl and it it so tight on her head she won't be able to wear it.
Would love any help you can give! You really hit a home run on this pattern, didn't you? I featured it on my fall crochet roundup! I made it in the Child size and found that it wasn't quite big enough for my 3 year old. But I think she has a bigger head and I think I just like longer hats probably. She has about a 20 inch head.
I keep making her "try it on". I'll let you know how it works out! I'm also using the I Hook this time to see what happens. I kinda like it so far! I think this is the one I will use for lots of other hats I may do. I wanted to say thank you for sharing your patterns. I have been looking for a good owl hat for about a year now and this is the best by far!
Wondering if anyone has figured out the problem of why these are coming out so small. I've made two with H hook, Vanna's Choice yarn, followed pattern to the letter and they were too small to fit anything. I really want one in my size but I just can't figure out how to make it bigger. I'm pretty sure this is the standard American english DC. Hmmm, I am beginning to think I might just crochet loosely? Stay tuned everyone, I will try to get a video tutorial made this week! I've found that everybody crochets just a little bit differently, so wide variations in gauge are not necessarily the fault of the crocheter or the designer.
At the same time, this makes it even more helpful to have a stated gauge for a pattern. It also helps to give measurements for each size. If you have one of these hats handy, I would just grab a ruler and measure 4" across and count how many dc you have. That would give us something to compare our stuff to, and we'd right away be able to tell whether we crochet tighter or looser than you do, if we need to go up or down a hook size or 2, or 3!
Gauge has now been posted with pictures. I found your blog when a lady asked me to make an owl hat for her baby girl. The picture she sent me was of one of your hats! You're beyond generous to provide these for free, and to allow selling of finished objects. Thank you so much for sharing this cute pattern! My niece, who is expecting her first baby, loves owls so I'm making one for her baby shower this Sunday. I just checked back as I hadn't printed off one of the photos and found out you now have other sizes.
I may now have to make her a matching hat! Finished this in the newborn size last night…SO cute! My favorite part of the pattern, though, was learning your round joining technique. I've always had awful, ugly seams and this eliminated them completely! This is my very first time reading a pattern, and actually learned the stitches through YouTube.
But i am wondering why does the edge of your hats look so even, especially on the ear flaps. Mine dont look like a chain stitch all around. What am I doing wrong?? Hi Mayela, did you single crochet around the entire hat after making the earflaps? That will give the edges of the earflaps and hat a clean look.
Do you have a size estimate for the circumference or diameter of the large adult hat? I'm making a different type of hat for a friend but using your large adult pattern. He's given me his head circumference but I'd just like to be sure that your size would be big enough.
I love that you have the different sizes! I couldn't ever figure out how to get them just right. Thank you sooo much for sharing this pattern! My daughter has wanted one of these but they are just too expensive in stores. I am making this for an 11 year old,used the pattern for the teens and everything was going great. I got through the 14th round and it is way to short.
I am on gauge but I am having to add 2 more rounds before the ear flaps. I wish I would have known it was going to need extra rows. I wouldn't have changed colors when I did. Thank you so much for this pattern! I adore it and have made so many hats in the few weeks since I've found it! I did want to mention that I had trouble with the hats being too short, as well. I've noticed that adding one extra row of DC at the end before starting the earflaps works well.
Anyway, I linked you on my blog and just wanted to stop by and show some love! These are the most simple crochet instructions i've ever read!! My grandma taught me how to do a single stitch a loooong time ago and that is all I've ever known how to do. I'm trying to broaden my crochet skills. I would very much like to feature this Crochet Owl Hat Pattern on my website. The tone is upbeat and friendly. Each pattern I feature includes your photo, a direct link to your site and, of course, is credited to you.
Your actual pattern is not reproduced in any way. If you agree to have your pattern s featured, just send me an email, or reply to this msg here on Ravelry. I hope to hear from you soon! For the eyes it says magic ring ch 2 round 1 10 DC in chain…. If you did mean chain in which one?
I've just made this hat for my two year old daughter who's quite big for her age so I used the measurements for a child instead of toddler. It's beautiful and I'm very grateful for the pattern!!! Just finished my 4th owl hat! I made 2 for my 3yr old and 4month old they were admired so much 2 of my friends asked me to do their babies one! Hi, thanks so much for the pattern. I have tried over and over again but my "hidden seam" doesn't come out straight like yours I've no idea why but I've tried countless times.
I must be doing something wrong but I really can't work out what: Any help would be appreciated x. Lol she is also on the 'large' end of the growth charts though! I'm going to gift the first one to a friend who is due early December and remake my daughters — I'm going to add in an extra row of brown at the correct stitch count and then add an additional row of pink at the end… I think this will take care of the length issue for me….
Thank you so much for posting this pattern… I will be making many of these as gifts — in all the sizes most likely! I'm starting an owl hat now for my cousins son. I'd love for you to link this pattern up to my link party that's going on right now:. Thank you very much. This is the first thing I've made for my 8mth old granddaughter. I'm new to hat-making and I have a couple of questions. First, my hat has a bit of a point in the top that I don't see in yours.
Thank you and I look forward to discovering more of your patterns. These are super cute!! I want to thank you for posting this pattern. I have used it so much!! I use this hat pattern for a lot of different hats. I love to crochet, but I hate coming up with my own patterns!! It takes someone super talented and patient to do this!! Sorry but I can't figure out if I should count the chain 2 as my first dc for that round, or not. Please answer as soon as you can 'cause I'm stuck here!
BUT I love it and can't wait to get going on it again!
Maybe someone else can answer? No just DC what number it calls for in the pattern. I am so sorry I told you wrong. I should have read the pattern beyond the first line. That explains why the top of my hat is more. Thank you so much. It was really easy to follow. Well short of sewing the eyes and nose on and braiding the tails.. Quick question — I made the smaller ones and am attempting a larger size… what is the purpose of the repeat 54DC row 7 and then increasing after that?
Is it possible to simply do the increase row and then repeat? I think the repeat of row 7 just helps with the natural curving of your head, the middle area where the curving isn't as extreme? Idk if that makes sense or not. Like I said in my above comment, I actually did two row 7s. It just seemed to add the a little more length in an area that didn't end up making it super huge at the bottom.
And like you, I used the I hook.
Worked better since I crochet tighter, too. I'm just wondering if you have any tips for attaching the eyes and nose to the hat? I'm not sure how to sew those on there. Amber, if you leave your tails long enough on these small pieces you can stitch them on very securely. I hated that I couldn't follow patterns because I could never match gauge — then my grandmother sat down with me and we each did a pattern — same yarn same hook — she's never had gauge issues.
We compared and realized how tight I crochet — then I did the same pattern, same yarn, one hook size up — and matched gauge! Not very scientific — but it worked! These patterns are wonderful — I'm on my 4th hat so far and am gifting them all for Christmas presents! Thank you so much for the wonderful pattern, and the great photos on where to start and end each round. That helps me so much as I struggle to make joined rounds look good! One more question—do you count the ch2 at the beginning of the round as your first stitch? Just made my first one and it turned out so cute.
I've had this issue with baby booties in the past, so I've just learned what yarn makes what size with the different brands. How do you attach the eyes and nose to the hat? Also do the beginning chains count as the first dc? I didn't make them count and as far as I can tell the hat looks alright.
I absolutely love your patterns and think you are a star for sharing them for free, thank you thank you thank you. I think I may have figured out the sizing issues that I keep reading people are having, and I too have experienced. Today I decided to follow the pattern, but ignore the round stitch count which I've paid great attention to before now. My hat seems to be the correct as its 'title' would suggest. I wonder if you just follow the pattern, Sarah and have perhaps counted wrongly when creating the patterns?
Hi Victoria, I am not sure what you mean by ignoring the round stitch count? Did you just crochet in a spiral? But I do believe I know why some peoples hats are coming out too small. If you don't use Vanna's Choice choice yarn specifically the barley color which is much thicker than other yarns the pattern won't work as well.
I am also a loose crocheter, so you might want to take that into account. Here is the good news, I used this same pattern for my sock monkey hat pattern, but altered it so that each size will come out bigger than what is written here. Feel free to use the sock monkey earflap hat as a base for the owl hat if you are having issues with the hats coming out too small.
I don't know if you answered this or not I did read the comments to try to figure it out, but sometimes I miss things , but I was wondering if the ch 2 in each round of the hats counts as a dc or not? I just wanted to make sure before I get too far into a hat and find out it messed the hat up somehow because I counted it when I shouldn't have.
Hi Molly, No do not count your chain 2.
Basically the chain 2 acts as a filler between your DC's in each round which helps hide the seam. Hi, Thank you for the pattern. I have found that I can't reach guage on most patterns out there. I tried your pattern and I'm finding the same problem. It's me not the pattern. I have tried changing hooks and stitches to try to get guage and I just can't. Could you please tell me what the diameter and the height should be on each hat. I want to make hats for my 11 Grandkids for Christmas not much time. And, they all range from 2 weeks to 12 years so, I would need them for each one.
This pattern is too cute! I saw a link on Pinterest, and I had to come and check it out!!! Zoh my goodness, I'm glad I did. Thank you so much for such an adorable free pattern! I absolutely love this adorable pattern! And you make it so easy to follow but I seem to have come up with a problem and as a beginner I need your expertise.
When you change colors is usually when you stop increasing and just DC all the way around and so going by your pictures the hat stops getting larger and sort of straightens out, which makes sense because the number of stitches stays the same but when making my own hat, I reach that point and it doesn't look like the hat is straightening out at all and so it ends up being to small.
I've counted and recounted the number of stitches in each round to make sure they match the number you say and they all do so I'm wondering if maybe you've ever come up with this problem or what you think I might be doing wrong. It's really bothering me and I very much appreciate your advice! I have a few friends who want me to make an even larger adult size… any suggestions…they want it about 4 more stitches larger. Also LOVE this pattern…absolutely adorable!!! Thanks for the super cute pattern. It was well written, very easy to follow. Your pictures were helpful also. Trying out the pattern and am a bit puzzled.
For all sizes the first earflap is started immediately after ending the last row, without moving away from the back seam. Should I sc over a certain number of dc to get to an 'ear position'? Otherwise the first earflap is in the wrong place. Halfway thru I started to read the comments and saw all the complaints about the hats being too small, so I switched for the large adult size. The pattern is just right, and FREE!!! Thank you for the free pattern…I love it…I stumbled on it just in time for Christmas!!
I made the child hat and it was so easy! I posted a picture and a link back to your page on my blog! Thank you so much for this adorable pattern! I made an adult size for a friend of mine and it turned out beautifully. I posted a pic of it on Facebook with a link to your page, and another friend said her young son would just love one of those hats. So I'll be making a small one soon. Thanks again for posting this pattern.
I just love it. For some reason, the shape looks very cone-like and not as round as the baby ones. Thank you in advance. I have made several of your newborn hats and they are just darling! I found that I needed to use a "J" hook instead of an "H" … I didn't realize I crocheted so tightly until I started this pattern! At the end of the increase rows, just before the color change, I realized the hat was definitely not going to fit a grown up.
Regardless, this is a fun pattern and I appreciate you offering it for free!! I made 2 so far in the child size…. I decided to try the child size again but went down 1 hook size and used a G hook…. How many DC are in the "magic ring"? This is only my 3rd project and I'm so delighted with the result.
I just finished it and I wanted to say how easy I found to follow your instructions. I've looked at many other patterns for this type of hat and yours was the easiest to understand for a beginner like myself. I love this pattern! I've used it so many times already. I also altered it to make a Minion hat from Despicable Me. I start with yellow, make the last row of grey for the owl into black for the minion and finish with yellow. Then put a row of single crochet around the eyes in grey, embroider a mouth and tie some black hairs at the top. Just thought I'd let you know that you've inspired my creativity!
Thank you so much! I love this hat. I'm making hats for all of my nieces and nephews. I used this pattern to make an owl hat and I tweaked it to make a Minion hat. Thank you soo much for these larger size instructions!! I've just made 3 of them this weekend and posted to my blog here http: Thanks also for sharing those first few pics of where to start and end. Have a Merry Christmas!! I just finished three for my sister and her daughters for Christmas.
I've also noticed this pattern at two different craft fairs recently. It's very generous of you to offer this fantastic pattern for free. Thanks for bringing so much cuteness into the world! I love this pattern and the hat came out awesome! The only thing I altered was from button eyes to crocheted eyes. But I'm having some trouble. As I was working on a hat, I noticed the seam began to curve to the right.
I've followed the pattern as written for the child and double checked the pictures with the instructions and the stitch counts each round, and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I don't suppose you'd know why the seam's spiraling? Can someone suggest the best way to sew on the eyes? I am having a hard time making them look right. Thank you so much for a well done, specific pattern. They turned out adorable and my grand daughters love them.
I have used other patterns found online and they are often not accurate. I found yours to be great! Also, your kindness and patience for those with questions is admirable. I found that by using a size larger hook, the hat fit my toddler perfect he has a big dome. Also, I didn't have buttons for the eyes, so I just did a round of brown 10 sc on magic ring, and then changed to accent color and followed the pattern — worked great! Thanks again for posting for FREE!!
I made my first one between last night and this morning. I wore it out to the store today and already got compliments. My husband even wants one now. He's a silly one. I'm definitely making more for all the newborns and toddlers in my life. I am using a J hook on this pattern.
It comes out perfect, exactly to the gauge each time. It took me almost 3 days to figure out the right combo for my yarn, how I crochet and how to get them to fit right! Take the time to measure your work. I just wanted to say that I have found your patterns so easy to follow.
My projects from your blog are awesome!! Thank you so much for this pattern. I've made 3 owls, a green monster with teeth and 2 plain ones. The sizes are spot on although I did add a row15 to the adult hat. You do a great job with detailed instructions and are very creative. Keep up the great ideas. You are an inspiration. I love this pattern, thank you so much! I've made three — one for my niece and one for each of my cousin's daughters. Because I'm not too comfortable in my ability to sew buttons on where they'll stay, I made a variation to the eyes:. With black, magic circle, dc 10, change colors, join, ch1.
With accent color eye color , 2sc in each dc, change colors, join, ch2. You are indeed a patient CRafter. Bless you for kindly answering all those questions. I am a Grandma of 13 and have crocheted over 50 years. I find your photos with arrows, and your tips and notes, extremely helpful. Most other patterns I just have to "know" or make up my own steps. When I make a project that's a little "off" our family calls it a "ka-ka". Keep up the creative work. I have made two of these this week. My granddaughter was having an owl theme birthday party and i googled looking for something to make and found your pattern.
I started at 9 pm and was able to finish it in the car the next day. Thank you for the cute but easy to follow pattern! Thank you so much for posting this for free… I make hats for the local Childrens Cancer Hospital and I am going to use this for some to take there…. Hi Sarah, I'm fairly new to crocheting, and my hat turned out really small. I used Vanna's choice yarn, and I also used this site to show me how to do basic stitches.
