Crocheted Ski Hat

It has been really cold here these past few weeks and am I glad I finished my new hat that I started here. I used the same wool from my super thick knit scarf, but this time in black with the flecks of oatmeal.


My oldest sister has crocheted dozens of these this winter and when I saw them I decided to make my own. I have trouble finding a hat that fits. My mother always said we had 'generous' heads. Big, she meant big.
My sister had already adjusted the pattern for her own hat, so I used the same. It is a bit loose, just the way I wanted it. I hate messing with the hair.


They are styled after Peruvian ski hats. My sister has made lots with pom poms, crocheted flowers, snowflakes stitched on the crown, thin braids for boys, and in so many different sizes and colours. I hope to get to the wool store tomorrow because my boys and nieces have been asking for hats of their own. Luckily they work up fairly quickly.


I'm sharing this with Air Your Laundry Friday, Textile Party #18 at Freckled Laundry. It is an older post, but one I hope you enjoy seeing.

  1. So cute! I wish I knew how to crochet.
    Thanks so much for the encouraging words on my blog. I appreciate it, and it helps me to remember the whole reason why I started blogging in the first place.
    Thanks again.

  2. Elizabeth, I love it! I've had the urge to start crocheting for over a week. I'm STILL waiting for a book to come in from the library to get myself started. My grandmother started to teach me before she passed away but I've long since forgotten but I'm determined to make something this winter!

    Be well ~Andrea~

  5. Thanks for the advice about small spaces concerning my daughter's bedroom. I have passed the info on.
    cute hat!
    I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. I lost my mother many years ago. I hope that you and all of your family are able to remember all the good times.
