I’m pleased to announce that I’ve published a new crochet hat pattern. My Easy Rainbow Hat coordinates perfectly with my very popular Easy Rainbow Scarf pattern! The hat pattern comes in 2 styles and 3 sizes. You’ll find it easy to make and fun to wear. Easy because my video tutorial will step you through the stitches. Fun because you’ll look so good in it, especially with the matching Easy Rainbow Scarf.
If you’d like to save 20% on the hat pattern or the scarf pattern (or both), watch the video to find a special discount code that’s valid on my website only until Jan. 31, 2021.
Several months ago, someone on Etsy asked me if I had a coordinating hat pattern for my Easy Rainbow Scarf pattern. I said I didn’t, but then I asked myself why I didn’t. So I got to work designing the hat soon afterward, using the same yarn that I used for my Easy Rainbow Scarf pattern: Caron Simply Soft, which is a worsted weight yarn. I designed and made the largest size first, then I thought it would be great to have 3 sizes: child, woman/teen and man.
I love the fact that you can make coordinating sets of hats and scarves now! If you love rainbow colors, like me, you’ll have some very colorful accessories, made with the 6 colors of the rainbow plus black! If you want to keep things simple, use only a dark color and a light color. Either way, the hat looks great! And if you’d like to make a messy bun hat, simply omit the final 3 decrease rounds at the top of the hat!
The pattern comes with complete written instructions, along with step-by-step photos for working in the back bump of the foundation chain, making a Long double crochet (Ldc) and starting a row (joining) with a dc.
The pattern comes with two PDF downloads. One download includes the step-by-step photos and the other download has less photos for ease of printing. Also, the written instructions and stitch counts for each hat size are color-coded to help you follow the instructions for the hat size you’re making.
Since I started a YouTube crochet channel earlier this year, I made a video tutorial teaching how to make the Long dc, working in the back bump of the foundation chain, making the sc ribbing, along with all the decreases used in this hat pattern. So if you haven’t done some of these stitches or techniques before, check out that video here.

I wish you all a Healthy, Happy New Year with lots of time to crochet!
