TC - Triple Crochet
FHDC - Foundation Half Double Crochet
Foundation Single Crochet

Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn - Light Weight 4 ply or 3 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle

Row 1: Work 25 Foundation Double Crochet, 5 FHDC, 5FSC

Row 2: Work in the loop below the top of the stitch (this creates the rib effect) in each stitch across. 1 SC in each of the next 5, 1 HDC in each of the next 5, 1 DC in each of the next 25, Turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, 1 DC in each of the next 25, 1 HDC in each of the next 5, 1 SC in each of the next 5, turn.

Continue rows 2 and 3 until you get the width of the cap.

Sew the two edges together working through the same loop that was used to create the rib stitch on one side and through the top stitches on the opposite side. This will push the stitches to the front.


  1. thank you Teresa!!!!!! I do have one little question, can you start this without the foundation crochet? I just cant get the hang of that thing. lol

  2. Harold,
    You can use a chain instead.

  3. i love the hat! i've made a version of it and will be posting a few pictures on my blog. i changed the ribbing and really like the way it turned out. i used a cotton yarn and it came out a little small so my daughter gets it instead of me!

  4. Hi Teresa
    I am making hats for charity and want to know what the average size head is (so I know how many rows to do). Can you help me? Maybe send me a private email? bp01604@gmail.com

  5. Hi. I'm looking at the video for this hat and I'm getting a headache. I consider myself a visual person but I just can't picture this.

  6. how do you come up with the design for the hats?? where do you get your inspiration from??? >.<
    P.S. I love your hats

  7. Hello Teresa, my name is Angel. I am making this hat for my 10 yr old son. I am using your YouTube video and your written directions. I have been folowing your instructions and was doing very well then my stitches started becoming less. I took pictures of my first try and took it out and started again but still keep loosing stitches. I have a web cam if you would like to chat I took the pictures on my phone if you would like to take a look at them and give me your advice. Thank you my email is angshr8@hotmail.com and I also have facebook, tagged, myspace, yahoo, and aol.

  8. somehow I keep ending up with more stitches! Lack of counting, I guess. I've ripped it out numerous times and started over. It's coming along!

  9. Thank you for the pattern. Your directions were excellent and it turned out great. http://itsaboutartanddesign.blogspot.com/2013/01/ribbed-crochet-winter-stocking-hat.html
