One Good Pattern Deserves Another
First came the Smokestack Cowl, then the Smokestack Boot Cuffs – and I heard your requests for a matching hat! The Smokestack Hat is a slightly slouchy beanie that compliments the cowl and cuffs perfectly.
But of course, it stands alone as well! The Smokestack Hat features 3 sizes – from Teen to Large Adult!
More Red Heart Gemstone
I’ve really enjoyed designing all three of these patterns in Red Heart Gemstone. This yarn has a great feel and is super easy to work with.
Once again, I’ve chosen the Onyx colorway, which highlights how unisex this pattern is. But this yarn comes in 18 gorgeous colorways, so mix it up and go for your favorites!
Pom or No Pom – Dress Your Smokestack Hat Your Way!
Of course, the colorway isn’t the only option – you can make a yarn pom, use a furry pom like these ones I love – found on Amazon! – or leave it plain… it’s up to you!

CSDC – Chainless Starting Double Crochet
If you would prefer to not use the CSDC, you can ch 3 or use your preferred dc substitute.
Skip the stitch behind the post stitch – it is considered worked into already.

BRIM INSTRUCTIONS (ALL SIZES) – use smaller hook:
Row 1: Ch 6 (8, 10), blo sc in the 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch, sc2tog in the next 2 sts of the last rnd; turn. (6 (8, 10) sts)
Row 2: Skipping the sc2tog, blo sc in each remaining st across; turn. (5 (7, 9) sts)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in blo sc in each st across, sc2tog in the next 2 sts of the last rnd; turn. (6 (8, 10) sts)
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until 1 st of the last rnd of the hat remains, working the last sc2tog into the last and first st of rnd if needed.
Repeat Row 2.
Next Row: Ch 1, sc in blo sc in each st across, sc2tog in the last and first last rnd sts; turn.
Final Row: Skipping the sc2tog, blo sc in each remaining st across; break yarn leaving a 12″ tail.
Sew the Brim edges together using the whip stitch, joining first and last rows. Be sure to work into the BLO of the last row to maintain the ribbed look.

I have questions on rounds 7,8 & 9. R7 – are you supposed to turn at the end? R8 – repeat round 2? This makes the hat huge! And R9 – the CSDC at the beginning is in the first dc of the round below. Shouldn’t you start w a fptr? And with turning round 7, it puts this round backwards?
I apologize, there was a typo on Rnd 8, it should have read Rep Rnd 6 – I’ve edited the pattern to fix it.
There is no turning in this pattern until you get to the brim.
Rnd 9 is correct, it starts with a CSDC so that the post stitches are offset.
The video tutorial should be going live on Thursday!
Awesome! Thanks for the quick response 🙂 I can’t wait to finish.
