Easy V-Stitch Hat


V-stitches are so easy to make and they are so beautiful. You never know how easy it is to make by looking at the finished product. And have you ever combine two different type of yarn in a project? here I used Red Heart with Love and Red Heart Super Saver. I choose this yarn not because of the type but because of the colors and the availability. So here is my quick and easy V-stitch hat. Hope you all enjoy making this hat.

Materials
  • Red Heart With Love in Hot Pink-Color A
  • Red Heart Super Saver in Baby Pink-Color B
  • I /5.50 mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors


Size
Adult Size

Stitches abbreviation used:
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • BLO - back loops only
  • beg. V-stitch- Beginning V-stitch ( 2dc in a stitch)
  • V-stitch


Instructions:

This Pattern starts from the ribbing and working in rows then after the ribbing will be working in rounds.

Row 1. With the Color A. Chain 9, sc in 2nd ch from the hook. SC in all stitches (8sc). Chain 1, turn.

Row 2. SC in first st. SC in next and the rest in BLO. Chain1, turn.

Row 3- Row 60. Repeat Row 2. Then join both ends of the ribbing together with by sl st each st together or you can also whip stitch them together. Whichever you like. Then we will work in round this time all the way up to the top of the hat. Weave all ends and fasten off.

Main Hat

Round 1. With Color A still, attached your yarn at the joining of the ribbing. Chain 1, sc in same st, sc in each st all the way around. Change to Color B. Join with a sl st in first st of the round.(60sc) 

Round 2.  Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *Skip one (1) st, 2 dc (V-stitch) in next stitch* Repeat all the way around. Change to Color A before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (30 V-stitch)

Round 3. Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *V-stitch in between the V-stitch(2dc) of the previous round.* Repeat all the way around. Change to Color B before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (30 V-stitch)

Round 4. Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *V-stitch in between the V-stitch(2dc) of the previous round.* Repeat all the way around. Change to Color A before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (30 V-stitch)

Round 5-Round 12. Repeat Round 3 and 4. You can add more rounds if you want your hat to be more slouch than what I've done.

Round 13. Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *V-stitch in between the V-stitch(2dc) of the previous round, V-stitch in next, then 1 dc in next (v-stitch decrease), and also 1 dc in the next v- stitch of previous round, then a full V-stitch in next* Repeat all the way around, ending with 2 v-stitches dec. Change to Color B before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. You'll have 3 full v-stitch followed by 2 v-stitch decreases in repeats. (18 Full V-stitch and 12 v-stitch dec. or 1 dc.)

Round 14. Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *V-stitch into the next V-stitch, V-stitch in between the V-stitch dec or in between the two lone dc of the previous round, V-stitch in next.* Repeat all the way around till end. Change to Color A before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (24 V-stitch)

Round 15.  Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *DC in next (v-stitch decrease) and in the next v- stitch of previous round, then full V-stitch in next* Repeat all the way around, ending with 2 v-stitches dec. Change to Color B before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (8 Full V-stitch and 16 v-stitch dec. or 1 dc)

Round 16.  Chain 2, dc in same stitch (beg. V-stitch made). *V-stitch in between the V-stitch dec or in between the two lone dc of the previous round, then V-stitch into the next V-stitch.* Repeat all the way around till end. Change to Color A before joining with a sl st on top of the beg. V-stitch. (16 V-stitch)

Round 17. Chain 2, dc in next V-stitch, dc in all v-stitches. Join with a sl st on top of the first st. (16 dc) Cut yarn and leave a long tail for gathering the crown or sewing the hole at the top close. 

Make your pompoms and attached it to your hat. It may look too complicated for you but as you go along you will know that it is a very easy pattern. I love this stitch and I might make more project out of this stitch. So stay tuned.

  1. On row 13, am I working in between the previous rows v stitches or in the v stitches?

  2. This looks adoarable! I'm looking to make a Bronco themed hat for my son. He's 4. In order to make it smaller how should I do this? Thank you so much for sharing this pattern.

  3. Thank you also. Just adjust the number of rows in your ribbing to your son. It's a multiple of two (2), and I think 36 to 40 rows of ribbing would be fine. But make sure to fit it on him first before making the main hat. Just always remember that it's a multiple of two (2). Hope that helps and I hope your son would love his hat. Thank you again

  5. I've done 60 rows of the sc ribbing and it is way too small to fit around my small adult head. Has anyone else had this problem. I will just add rows but just wondering why it's so off. Thanks

    1. We all differ in tension and in how we crochet, and different materials(like yarns and hook size or even hook brands) yields different results,so there is a possibility that what you are doing won't be the same size as mine.. But this is actually the first time I encounter a problem like this with this pattern of mine. but don't worry you can add more rows if you want too as long as it is divisible by two or a multiple of two... you are good to go

  6. Ok thanks! I asked 4 more rows and am now doing the V stitch for first time and you are right it's easier then I thought it would be when I read the pattern!
