This Autumn Sky Hat Free Crochet Pattern is meant to complement the Autumn Sky Cowl. You will find the stitch used is the same throughout both pieces allowing you to coordinate your casual and stylish outfit. The Autumn Sky Hat uses the same Lion Brand Mandala yarn as the cowl. Making it a lightweight hat for you to have for the Fall.

Pattern Notes

  • Pattern is written in S/M. Changes for the L/XL are in parentheses26, please take note.
  • Ch1 does not equal a st. Join with a sl st to the first st of the round, skipping over the ch1.
  • Ch4 equals a dc plus ch1 – the beginning of your first V-st.
  • When crocheting the slip stitch rows in the band, crochet loosely so that you can easily slide your hook into the BLO of the slip stitch.
  • Use stitch markers to help you identify the first sl st of the sl st the row in the band.
  • When working the band, it will look slightly askew, this is normal and it’s due to the use of slip stitches.
  • I give instructions on seaming the band together but use what you feel most comfortable with when it comes to seaming. Important to note that you will NOT be cutting the yarn.
  • Play close attention to decrease rows in the body of the hat. You will be decreasing every few rows.
