The Loopy Love Blanket was last week’s free crochet pattern, and it includes 7 sizes. This week I’m sharing the Loopy Love Hat, which comes in 5 sizes to fit newborns to adults!

Now there's a Loopy Love Hat! Get the free #crochet pattern for the hat in 5 sizes - and the blanket in 7 sizes! From mooglyblog.com

The Loopy Love Hat uses the same stitches as the Loopy Love Blanket, but working in the round without turning – this creates a lovely swirling effect! If you prefer a more exact match then you can turn after joining every round. After making the baby size blanket I had more than enough to make the baby/toddler size hat (though it was cutting it close on the color I used for the blanket edging). So there should be enough left over to make the smaller newborn size hat as well.

You might be able to squeak out the child size with the leftovers too, as long as you use the blanket edging color as the least used color in the hat. If you’ve got the yardage to spare and prefer a slouchier hat, just add more rows in the section where you’re working evenly!

    Hi Tamara! I’m itching to make this baby hat for a 3-months-old girl already! But I only have sock weight yarn with nice colours for it. Do you think I can simply go up a size and follow your pattern straight or I’ll have to breakdown and recalculate the numer of stitches in each round? The number of rounds can be a work-as-I-go. Thanks!

    Good Evening,

    I love this pattern. I would love to make it for myself in an adult size but I would like to use an amazing hand dyed sock yarn that I have. Its a super wash merino sock yarn… What would be your suggestion for this? Should I increase any particular row to make sure it fits me?

    Thank you so much for your time.

      Tamara Kelly says

      Thank you Bernice! Sock yarn is thinner than light yarn usually, so I would bump up a hook size or two until I was able to get gauge with the yarn. :)

    I like this hat pattern. I have used it twice with worsted weight yarn and have found that for a teen/small adult size stopping the increasing size after the round with 18 ch-3 loops works and for a large adult size stopping the increase after the round with 21 ch-3 loops. I have noticed that the very top tends to stick up somewhat in a point when using worsted weight acrylic yarn; the second time I made a Loopy Love Hat I made some passes through the first two rows with the yarn end I was hiding anyway, and that helped minimize the “point!” :-)

    This is a good school/team colors pattern! I made this hat and a scarf from the Loopy Love Blanket pattern with the New Orleans Saints colors of black, old gold and white. Also made a two-color one with school colors of green and gold.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love Moogly. If you knew how much I loved your site… It might be considered scary.

    Thanks for having such a wonderful site.

    Love this hat! Have made several. But for the Newborn hat, you need to put one extra dc in Round 14 in order to come out with 46 sts total at the end of the round. Following the instructions for Round 14 as is only gives you 45 sts total. There needs to be 46 so that the last two rounds of alternating fpdc and bpdc come out right.

    How do I start this hat if not using the Magic Circle technique? I have not tried that yet and prefer to start it the normal way. Than You

    Jolene says

    is the base supposed start as a triangle. I’m having a problem with the very start. It seem to have several stitches after the last dc. It looks like its missing another combination Thank you

    • 27

      Tamara Kelly says

      It is somewhat triangular at the start, yes! Using a stitch marker to mark your first st of each row can be a big help!

    Hi,
    I LOVE THE LOOKS OF THIS & started, but got tangled up with all the yarns.
    CAn you explain how to carry up the floats? I did this with another hat no problem, but this has got me stymied.

    • 29

      Tamara Kelly says

      You do have to move the skeins around a bit to keep the yarns from tangling. If it gets to crazy, you can always cut them too!

    thanks for this pattern! I made it for myself as a slouch hat with a thin yarn, just used a crochet hat sizing guide to make sure it fit. i used a 3.75 mm hook for yarn that called for a 3-3.5mm to get a lacier effect and went for as many rows as necessary to get it to be longer and slouchy ( i didn’t count, just tried it on occasionally, then went down to a 3mm hook for the brim. thanks again, i love my new bright mustard hat!

    Jean says

    I am struggling with the joining of the rounds . It says to join with slip stitch to the ch-3, however, there is a sc that must be skipped over to do this, or am I reading it wrong?

    Darcy Palmer says

    Dear Tamara,

    Thank you so much for your patterns. I love them. Every one that I’ve made has come out great. I’ve made a least half of dozen Luscious One Skein hats, as well as matching scarves, boot cuffs and gloves. I just made a Loopy Love hat today and it’s so cute!

    Thanks again for sharing your patterns for free!!!!

    Does this pattern come in a video form? I’m having a lot of trouble following these written instructions. No I am NOT a beginner. TIA
