Warm Hug Hat ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Warm Hug Hat
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

I love hats that keep my whole head warm, even my ears, and don’t leave a space between the hat and the scarf. This hat uses Red Heart’s {mix·ol·o·gy} yarn to do just that!!! The three yarns work so wonderfully together to add even more fun to this easy pattern. And of course, chunky yarns and big pom poms are really hot right now, so you will be warm and fashionable!

Tassels/Pom Pom:
Attach all 3 colors to each end of row 6 (you will have 1 or 2 of them already at each end, just add on the colors you need) and ch 10. Clip the ends leaving 10″ tails to tie on the tassels.

For the pom pom on the back, hold all 3 colors together and wrap them around your piece of cardboard (or smartphone) 25 times. Be sure to lay a long piece of color A or B down across the cardboard first to use for a tie. Tie them together tightly and clip them opposite of the tie, so that the tie is in the middle. Wrap the tie around again and tie it again to get it nice and tight. Use the tie ends to attach the loose pom pom to the center of the hat.

For the tassels (make 2), hold all 3 colors together and wrap them around your piece of cardboard (or smartphone) 12 times. Be sure to lay a long piece of color A or B down across the cardboard first to use for a tie. Tie them together tightly and clip them opposite of the tie, so that the tie is in the middle. Wrap the tie around again and tie it again to get it nice and tight. Use the tails at the ends of the ch 10 to tie the center of the tassel (where it is already tied) onto the end of the chain. Fold the tassel in half with the tie strings in the center. Cut another long piece of A or B and wrap it tightly around the tassel close to the top. Tie it firmly in place and pull the ends through the center of the tassel. Clip any long ends to clean up the tassel.

Clip yarn and weave in all ends.

Wear or give and enjoy!

    • Actually, it says “Click for an ad~free PDF”. As in there are no ads that pay me on the PDF.

      If you don’t mind the ads on the site, then you can use the free pattern right here in the blog post and the advertisers will pay me. If you want and ad~free pattern, you can pay $2.00 for the ad~free PDF, as I won’t get paid any other way if you print it out.

  1. I love this hat! I’ve made 4 in the past 2 days. Just want you know that there is an extra stitch at the beginning of round 4. I just skipped the first dc and started the round at “2dc in first st”. Thank you so much for the pattern.

  2. Hi Jessie, thank you for sharing this fun pattern!

    I’ve already blown through my allowance for yarns this month. Do you think it would work up reasonably the same if I use some of the Lion Brand Homespun sitting in my stash tote?

  3. Hi. I’m brand new at crochet. I love this hat. I want to make some but I have a question before I proceed. Do you break the yarn each time you change from a-b-c? Or do you leave them as working yarn? Please help, and thank you in advance as well as for the pattern. My friend is going to love it for her present this year.

  4. thank you so much. I make hats for Caps for Kids organization and we give hats to all age groups. This will be perfect…thank you for sharing and making the pattern free.

  5. I just made his hat and it is perfect!! Fast, easy and adorable. I used a 9.0mm crochet hook with super bulky (6) yarn from Loops and Threads. It’s a perfect size for my 9 year old daughter. and Thank you for a wonderful pattern!

  6. Just finished your hat and it’s adorable. I used Bernat Li’l Tots and an I hook, will fit a newborn. It worked up so fast and turned out so cute! I’m leaving off the tassels since its for a baby, I’m sending them to Stitching for One Nation Walking Together, a Ravelry group. By the way, the link is not working on Ravelry to add this to my queue. I’m going to post it but there will be no way to link to your pattern. The link must be broken. Anyway, this is a lovely pattern, will make a lot of little ones happy. I’m going to use thicker yarn to make slightly larger for bigger kids. Thanks for a wonderful pattern!

  7. Jessie, love this hat pattern. Made 1 today with wool ease. Oatmeal color.
    Was wonder if on row 6 of the flap, do you Ch 2 after turn? I went ahead & did the Ch 2. Thanks again for this super nice free pattern!
