So So Soft
The Hygge Cloud Hat is made with Red Heart Hygge. This yarn is soft, a little furry, and has an amazing feel and look. I love designing with it!
A Matching Set
After I made the Hygge Cloud Super Scarf, I got a bunch of requests for a matching hat! These two really are the perfect pair – great for gifting, or a little pampering for you!
The scarf features tassels made with the leftover bits of yarn – but just as they are optional, you have options with this hat! Make a matching tassel, a pretty yarn pom, or add a faux fur one as shown here – it’s up to you!
Easy and Quick to Crochet
Crocheted top-down, the Hygge Cloud Hat works up in just an evening or two and is sized to fit most teens/adults. Want to make a custom size? Just stop increasing when you’ve got the circumference you want and start working even!

Helpful Links & Tutorials:
When working into the skipped ch or st of the row below, be sure to enclose the ch-1 (see tutorial linked above if needed).
The ch 2 at the beginning of each rnd, does not count as a st, and is only a turning chain. If preferred, skip the ch 2 and replace the first dc of each rnd (when applicable) with a Chainless Starting Double Crochet.
