Free Pattern: 6 Beautiful Crocheted Hats



It's so obvious that I love hats. I've been making hats since I got back on doing crochet. They are easy and quick to make and also they are a necessity whatever the weather is. In this post I've picked some beautiful hats that the patterns are for free. When I googled "crocheted hats" almost all of the pictures I find are that of a messy bun hat. I've never really made one but I don't hate them that much. 

 So in this post I included a messy bun hat by Sarah of Repeat Crafter Me along with some beautiful hats form very talented designers. There are tons of beautiful hat actually, most of them made by these designers already, so when you open the link later you will be directed to their blogs and discover more beautiful hats to make. So for now here are some of the most beautiful hats I've found in the web.

  1. 1920's Cloche Hat by Olivia Kent of Hopeful Honey
  2. Carlyle Slouch Hat by Rebecca of Little Monkeys Crochet 
  3. Women Crochet Plaid Slouch hat by Bethany of Whistle and Ivy
       
  4. And again by Bethany Crochet Snowfall Slouchy Hat of Whistle and Ivy
  5. And this Mommy and Me Messy Bun Hat is so adorable by Sarah of Repeat Crafter Me
  6. And last but definitely not the least is from Olivia again of Hopeful Honey, The Classic Bubblegum Hat

And of course this post won't be complete without my own designed hats. Here are two of the hats I made recently
 The Bean Hat  and my most popular as of this writing the Easy V-stitch Hat
