Half Wobbly Hat Crochet Pattern | Tw-In Stitches



In December of 2015, I shared the Half Wobbly Hat pattern using super bulky yarn.  Recently, I had the opportunity to make a hat for my sister using this pattern, but with a very different yarn.  I thought I might share the pattern with you in case you would like to make a Half Wobbly Hat in a worsted weight or other yarn!

Half Wobbly Hat Pattern


Supplies:

1 skein Red Heart Unforgettable or worsted weight yarn
I (5.5 mm) hook
1 tapestry needle

Stitches:

Chain
DC
DC2TOG
Slip stitch


Pattern:

Row 1: Using a magic circle, chain 2. Crochet 12 DC into the magic circle. Close the circle and slip stitch into the top of the first DC. (Note: it is very important that this beginning circle is a multiple of three.)

Row 2: Chain 2, 2 DC in each stitch around. Slip Stitch into the top of the first DC. (24 DCs)

Row 3: Chain 2, *2 DC in the first stitch, 1 DC in the next.* Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch into the top of the first DC to finish.  (36 DCs)

Row 4: Chain 2, *2 DC in the first stitch, 1 DC in each of the next two stitches.* Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch into the top of the first DC to finish.  (48 DCs)

Row 5: Chain 2, *2 DC in the first stitch, 1 DC in each of the next three stitches.* Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch into the top of the first DC to finish. (60 DCs)

At this point, stop and measure the diameter of your circle.  An adult hat should measure 6.75 in (adult small) to 7.25 inches (adult large) across.  You need to keep increasing until you reach that length. Depending on your tension, you may need to crochet additional rows to increase.

**Row 6 (if you need to increase to reach correct size): Chain 2, *2 DC in the first stitch, 1 DC in each of the next four stitches.* Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch into the top of the first DC to finish. (72 DCs)

*** If you need to keep increasing: Chain 2, *2 DC in the first stitch, 1 DC in each of the next 5 stitches, etc.


Row 7 (Wobbly Row): Chain 1. HDC in the same stitch (counts as one half of a DC2TOG). Skip one stitch and DC in the next. Chain 1. Start a DC2TOG in the same space, skip one stitch and complete the DC2TOG in the next space. *Chain 1, start a DC2TOG in the same space, skip one stitch and complete the DC2TOG in the next chain stitch.* Repeat from * to star around until you finish the last DC2TOG. Chain 1, DC in the same stitch and slip stitch to the third chain to end the row. The number of stitches you have will depend on how many times you increased.

Row 8 (Wobbly Row): Slip stitch into the chain 1 space.  HDC in the same space and DC into the next chain 1 space.  *Chain 1 and begin a DC2TOG in the same space. Complete the DC2TOG in the next chain 1 space.* Repeat from * to * around. Following final chain 1, slip stitch into the top of the first DC to join.

Row 9-12: Repeat Row 8. For a slouchy hat, you can repeat Row 8 for two or three more rows.






Row 13: Slip stitch into the chain 1 space. Chain 1. Crochet 2 HDC in the same space. 2 HDC in each chain 1 space around. Slip stitch to the top of the first HDC to join.


Row 14. Chain 1. 1 HDC in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the top of the first HDC to join.

Repeat Row 14 if you would like more of a band.

Fasten off and weave in ends. Viola!
