This crochet hat ornament is quick and easy to make, making it an excellent project for beginners and experienced crocheters. You only need a small amount of sock-weight yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook.

You’ll need to create a brim using the slip-stitch ribbing technique, then continue in the long double crochet stitch pattern crocheting in the round through the body and the crown. Once finished, you can add a pom pom to the top of the hat for some extra flair. >> Use these simple and easy-to-use mini pom makers by clover <<

To finish the ornament, you will need to create a hanging loop by chaining a few stitches and attaching it to the top of the hat. You can add other embellishments, such as a crochet snowflake or ribbons.

This miniature winter crochet hat ornament is a fun and festive project that’ll bring a smile to anyone’s face. Hang it on your tree or give it to a teacher, friend, or loved one. It’s sure to become a treasured part of your holiday traditions.

SPECIAL STITCHES 

⭐️ Long Double Crochet (Ldc): Work a double crochet (dc) in the st indicated one round below the previous round worked. This stitch will be worked around the previous round worked.

⭐️ Long Double Crochet 2 Together (Ldc2tog): *Yarn over, insert hook in st indicated one round below the previous round, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * once more in next st indicated. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.  

⭐️ Long Double Crochet Decrease (Ldc dec): Yarn over, insert hook in st indicated one round below the previous round, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, insert hook in next st indicated, yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.  

NOTES

  • Use a small hook, smaller gauge, and thinner yarn for small ornament size.  Use larger hook, larger gauge, and thicker yarn for the gift card holder (medium size). 
  • Project is worked by changing colors at the end of every round in the body and crown.  Change colors in the following order: A, B, C for small ornament and A, B, C, D, E for medium ornament. 
  • Change color at join at end of round, leave the old color hanging out. When it is time to rejoin with a new color, float the old color up the side of the work to use it.  Insert hook into first st, fold in new color, pull through st and loop on hook.  This will join the round together and change the color. Then continue in pattern leaving the new old color just hanging out. This method will create a float at each color change up the inside of the hat.
