Free Pattern: Robin Hat



Yay! It's time again for a new free pattern!

I have been working on this the last couple of days.. in between school runs, mad wednesday, housework (well not really... )

I have made this hat for me! I loved the first one I made, green, grey and white. But those are not my colors. So I made this one for me! And I will wear it all winter! And I hate selfies, so unless a really good one turns up you just have to believe me that it looks great (especially with the cowl and gloves I'll be making as well!).

I named it Robin, because it reminded me of the hat Robin Hood wears. My first name was Miss Dorothy, because of the spiral. But I liked Robin better.

So I hope you like it! And I would love to see pictures of your finished Robin Hat!

At this stage I have reached a diameter of 17.5cm. This should fit an adult woman according to the graph above. This means I need to add rows until I reach hat height of 22-24cm. I’m adding 10 more single color rows.

R11, at the end of Color A place a stitch marker. This spot will be your row marker. In the following rows, once you come close to this point, place a stitch marker. Don’t worry about the extra stitch you have left after the 20HDC, this is the extra stitch you added in R3. You will add that on in the end.

R11-R20,
Color A, HDC in next 20st of Color B
Color B, HDC in next 20st of Color C
Color C, HDC in next 20st of Color A - 60st






R21, 
Color A - no stitches
Color B - HDC until you’re even with Color A
Color C - HDC until you’re even with Color A



R22,
Color A, FPHDC in next 46st, 7 times: *2FPHDC, FPHDC around next post* 
Color B, HDC in next 67st
Color C, HDC in next 67st - 67st

R23,
Color A, HDC in next 19st
Color B, HDC in next 20st
Color C, HDC in next 21st, SC in same stitch as last HDC, 
6SC along short side, fasten off with invisible join,   - 67st

    1. Hi Cindy, for the brim on the hat you need the 3 different rows coming together at the end. Could you please tell me what didn't work out for you, maybe I can help you? If you would like to make a beanie with the spiral, you can, you have to start with 2SC, 2HDC, 2DC in your magic circle and build on that (you can even start with a higher number of stitches in your magic circle).

  6. Hi, the hat is gorgeous, I really like it. I just finished my hat (not this pattern, it's just from one color), and I would like to make a brim like this. Is it possible to make from one row (one color)? I'm beginner and I can't work it out.

  7. Hi Karolina, for this exact brim you need the 3 different rows to come together. What you can do for the brim is to add Front post stitches 3/4 of your hat (so if you have 60 stitches, you will add FP SC to the first 15 stitches and then FPHDC to the next 30 stitches and then turn and work HDC back 30 stitches etc etc and build up your brim like that.

    Hope this helps! Patricia

  8. Hola Patricia, me encanta tu gorro!!! querría hacerlo pero en un solo color lo malo es que no hablo inglés y no me aclaro con la traducción automática de google. No sé si tengo la buena suerte de que tú hables español y puedas darme algunas indicaciones útiles o quizás mostrar un gráfico para hacer el ala que queda tan bonita.
    En cualquier caso felicidades por tu creación y un saludo.

    1. Hi Elena, Thank you for your message. I'm sorry but I don't speak Spanish. I used google translation for your message. You can make it in 1 color, but you need 3 skeins of yarn to work with to get the rim right. I don't have charts yet. I will be looking into that coming year.
      Best wishes, Patricia
