CROCHET PATTERN - Delaney Hat

The Delaney Hat is a fun & funky spiral-topped beanie that's perfect for the whole family. It can be customized in lots of ways, and is as fun to crochet as it is to wear!
I hope you enjoy this EASY and FREE crochet pattern! :)

Materials:  I/9 (5.5 mm) crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors

Yarn:  2 colors of Worsted Weight Yarn, approximately 75-100 yards each

Sizes:  0-3 Months (14-15”), 3-6 Months (15-17”), 6-12 Months (17-19”), Toddler (18-20”), Child (19-21”), Adult (21-23”)

Gauge: 7 HDC and 4 Rows = 2”

Stitch Guide:  BL - back loop, CH - chain, HDC - half double crochet, SC - single crochet, SL ST - slip stitch, ST(S) - stitch(es)  

Notes:
  • Pattern is written for 0-3 months with 3-6 months, 6-12 months, toddler, child and adult sizes in parentheses. 
  • Count your STS as you go along to make sure you do the HDC and SC in the correct places. 
  • Don’t fasten off at each color change. Carry the yarn along loosely.

CH 25 (27, 29, 31, 33, 37), turn.

Row 1:  HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each ST across, CH 15, turn.   [24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 36) HDC + 15 CH]

Row 2:  Work 2-3 SC in 2nd CH from hook and in next 13 CH (spiral made).  Change Color, HDC in BL of each HDC across, CH 1, turn.   [24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 36) HDC + spiral]

Row 3:  HDC in BL of each HDC across, CH 15, turn.  [24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 36) HDC + 15 CH]

Row 4:  Work 2-3 SC in 2nd CH from hook and in next 13 CH (spiral made).  Change Color, HDC in BL of each HDC across, CH 1, turn. [24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 36) HDC + spiral]

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 until 24 (26, 30, 32, 36, 40) rows have been completed, CH 1, turn.

Joining end-to-end, SL ST down entire length of hat through both layers, fasten off leaving a 12” tail. Turn hat right-side-out.

Using tail & yarn needle, weave in and out of the topmost HDC stitches evenly around the top of the hat, then cinch the hat closed so that the spirals form a “bouquet”. Fasten off the long tail. SC evenly around edge of cuff if desired. Weave in all ends. Fold up cuff & Enjoy!

Other Suggestions:
  • For wider stripes, change colors every 4 rows instead of 2. 
  • Work the entire hat in a solid, variegated, or self-striping yarn. 
  • Work every 2 rows using a different color. Use up your scraps!

    1. The curliques are made at the same time as the rows of half double crochet.

    1. You will put 2-3 single crochet in each chain. It causes the strip to curl

      Delete
  4. 2-3 sc means (after your chain 15, 2sc in 2nd ch from hook and do 3 single crochet in next chain, repeat down the chain.

    1. Is it 2 sc, then 3sc in the next alternating 2 then 3

      Or is is just 2 in the 2nd ch, then 3sc only in ea to the end?

      Very confusing

    2. 2sc or 3sc in each ch. 2 will make for a looser curl, 3 will be a tighter curl.

    3. I consider myself an advanced chrocheter. But I have bombed on this pattern. I'm making the child size hat. For some reason I have curlies both ends. Third attempt might be lucky. It feels like there's a step missing from Pattern or I'm missing the point. Love a pic of first few rows. Thanks

  8. I can't get my spirals to be as tight as the picture shows. What am I doing wrong? I put 2 or 3 sc in each chain.

    1. Gena,you can twist your spirals into shape or try using a smaller hook just for the spirals.
      Have fun!

  9. I love the look of this hat; and, if there were video instruction, I'd do one in a heartbeat. ALAS, I've discovered I just can't read and interpret written pattern instructions. I've had fantastic luck with You Tube video insruction. I don't suppose you have a video hiding somewhere?
