Moe Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern

Tunisian-crochet-free-pattern-Moe-hat-with-braids

Moe
a Mohawk or braid hat
Tunisian Crochet Pattern
Beginner Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This fun hat came about when I needed Christmas presents for some young cousins of mine. I had been making some Tunisian crochet squares and was thinking about how cool it would look if I changed colors between each pass. I am not a fan of having lots of ends to work into my pieces, so the tied ends seemed the perfect solution. Thus these quirky little hats were born! This pattern is written so that someone who has not tried Tunisian crochet before can still make this hat. There are many process photos to help along the way.

Sizes:
Toddler (Child, Adult, Adult XL)
16 (19, 22, 25) inches

Worsted Weight (Red Heart Super Saver used in samples, but any worsted weight works as long as the gauge is correct.)

Hook/Needle:
5.5mm (US I/9) or size needed to obtain gauge

Gauge:
16 sts and 14 rows in a 4” square, done in Tunisian Simple Stitch

Other Notions:
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Stitches and Skills used:
CH ~ chain
YO ~ yarn over
MC ~ main color
CC ~ complimentary color

Hat Body

For Mohawk hat, start and end each part of each row with a 6” tail, for braid hat use a 36” (or longer) tail. It may take a few rows to get used to just starting leaving a tail, but it will get easier as you go!

Row 1: (Part 1) With CC, insert hook in bottom loop of 2nd ch from hook, YO, pull up loop; (insert hook in next bottom loop of ch, YO, pull up loop) across to end of ch leaving all loops on the hook (32 (38, 44, 50) loops), cut yarn leaving a tail

Connecting Halves

Line up both halves of hat to make a whole hat. Tie ends together, 1 or 2 from each half in an overhand knot. Cut extra pieces of yarn to tie together opening at top of hat. Make sure knots are on outside of hat.

Clip ends to desired length.

Make braided hat in the same manner as the Mohawk hat, only using each color for part 2 of one row, and part one of the next. This leaves tails on the left side only of each half. To connect rows, thread one end of each color through the end loop of opposite half, then tie together. Start braids at the top of hat, working in ends along the way (as in a French braid.) Keep braiding until desired length is reached. Tie off and clip ends.
