Bloom Hat Tutorial

Intermediate Skill Crotchet Pattern
 By Jessie

Bloom-Hat-Free-Crochet-Pattern

This hat was inspired by an old potholder pattern that can be found here.

This is a slightly loose fitting hat with a tie string that tightens it to fit. It creates an adorable flower look. Make it from all one color, or change colors for each row of petals. The sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in various colors and a 3.5mm hook.

Stitches and Abbreviations used:
sl st ~ slip stitch
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet
yo ~ yarn over (wrap yarn around hook)
rnd ~ round
sp ~ space
st ~ stitch

Sizes ~ Infant/Toddler (Toddler/Child, Adult) 
Gauge ~ 20 hdc long by 7 rows high = 4” long by 2” high

3ch, join into loop with a slst

Round 2: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, 2hdc in rest of sts, sl st to top of 2ch (30 sts)
Round 3: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 5 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 3 more times, hdc in next 5 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (35 sts)
Round 4: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 3 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next st, 2hdc in next st, sl st to top of 2ch (50 sts)
Round 5: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 4 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 4 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (60 sts)
Round 6: last shaping round for infant/toddler 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 5 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 5 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (70 sts) skip to round 11 for infant/toddler
Round 7: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 6 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 6 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (80 sts)
Round 8: last shaping round for toddler/child 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 7 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 7 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (90 sts) skip to round 11 for toddler/child
Round 9: 2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 8 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 8 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (100 sts)
Round 10: last shaping round for Adult2ch (counts as first hdc) hdc in same st as sl st, *hdc in next 9 sts, 2hdc in next st* repeat between * * 8 more times, hdc in next 9 sts, sl st to top of 2ch (110 sts)
Round 11: 2ch (counts as first hdc), hdc in each stitch all the way around, sl st to top of 2ch.
Continue  round 11 until hat base measures desired length, cut yarn and bind off. I like this hat to be very long, so it covers from the base of the head, around the ears and over the forehead. Of course I created this pattern for a Halloween costume, so I wanted it to be warm; you may want it to be shorter. Have fun with it!

Bloom-Hat-Side-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Bloom
Bobble Stitch: (used in the first round of the petal rounds section) this is basically a dc, without the last step, followed by another dc without the last step, and then they are connected. Yo, insert needle in next st, yo, pull needle through st (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo, insert needle in next st, yo, pull needle through st (4 loops on hook), yo, pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through remaining 3 loops on hook.
*from this point forward the petals will be worked in the front loops left unworked on the hat base

Bloom-Hat-Back-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Petal Rounds:
Connect yarn to one of the front loops left unworked from round 1. You will now be making the flower center:
3ch, 7 bobble stitches across the next 14 sts, sl st to top of 3 ch, clip yarn leaving a 12” tail. Stuff with a bit of stuffing or some scrap yarn. Thread tail into a yarn needle and stitch center closed.

Bloom-hat-top-close-up

Time for the petals: Connect yarn to one of the front loops left unworked in the next round, 1ch, sc in same st, * hdc in next st, 5dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in next 2 sts* Repeat pattern between * * until there are only 4 sts left (if you have made a mistake in the base, you may find you have to fudge a bit here), hdc in next st, 5dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in next st, sl st to first sc. Clip yarn and finish off.

Repeat previous round on front loops of the rest of the hat base.

For last round of hat base repeat the petal round on the front loops, and then again on the back loops, creating two rows of petals

Bloom-Hat-Tie-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Tie string:
Chain stitch a string to your desired length. It should be long enough to wrap around the head and tie in a bow.

Weave the tie string through the hat base 2 rows up from the bottom of the hat.
