Winter Wishes Ear Warmer – Crochet Pattern

My top selling pattern in 2020 was the Winter Wishes Scarf. The texture is amazing and it is a fun design so I decided to add to the collection and make a coordinating Winter Wishes Ear Warmer pattern.

The ear warmers are made in a rich mustard yellow and show off the amazing textures that are created in the stitches.

About the Winter Wishes Ear Warmer Pattern

The pattern comes in three sizes from child up to adult. The ear warmers work up quick with a worsted weight (#4) yarn and is crocheted with a size I (5.50 mm) hook.

Switch up the color, add striping yarn or ombre for an entirely new look. Check out some of the samples made by my pattern testers below:

Waves of Hope Hat – Crochet Pattern

The intricate details details of the stitch work shown in this gorgeous wave stitch shown in the Waves of Hope Hat. I love the simplicity of the design, a solid look with no interruptions. But, the pop of texture seen in the woven fibers is unbelievable.

The Waves of Hope Hat

My fall back design is hats, I have been designing hats since Sweet Potato 3 began. I love how some can be so unique and have different looks based off of the way you make them: bottom up, top down and side to side.

I try to design a few of each hat types every year. This year I was looking through my top selling patterns and my Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon kept popping into my mind (check it out HERE). I think it is so popular because of the way the texture in the stitches just pops.

So, I decided to replicate that stitch in a design that you can make for just about anyone of any age, not just infants. The Waves of Hope hat comes in sizes for children up to adults. It’s a simple adjustment to alter the size of the hat. It can be worn slouchy, or just fold the brim for a more traditional look.

The Wave Sttich

I made a quick video tutorial on how to work the Wave Stitch you see in the hat. I think you will love this stitch, just make sure you work those slip stitches loose. Check out the tutorial below:

Materials Needed for Waves of Hope Hat

  • Crochet Hook Size H (5.00 mm)
  • Worsted Weight Yarn (#4)
  • Approximately 190 -225 Yards in Main Color
  • Sample made in Mighty Stitch / color: Mint
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape

Dotty’s Dream Hat – Crochet Pattern

I love designing hats, especially when they are being made for someone specific and you have them in mind as you pick out the stitches and look you are trying to achieve. This year, I was honored to design a hat for my daughters dance teacher. I named the hat Dotty’s Dream Hat, check it out below:

Dotty's Dream Hat

Dotty’s Dream Hat Inspiration

You may be wondering why this hat is designed for her dance teacher. My daughter took dance for 5 years from Dotty and absolutely loved it. She decided to take a break and returned a few times but never liked the teachers like she liked Dotty, eventually she would quit. Dotty is great with the kids, she is kind and makes them want to work hard to be better.

Unfortunately, in late December Dotty found out she had breast cancer and was about to begin a long journey. Dotty has been such an inspiration to so many young girls and now she had a personal battle to fight!

Breast Cancer Awareness

The Design

The hat was designed with Dotty in mind including her cancer battle and her dancing spirit in mind. The easy part was picking these lovely pink yarns to use in the samples. I am so grateful to be able to say that Dotty finished her last chemo treatments just this last month. We will continue to pray for her recovery.


Next came the little details in the band of the hat. These small stitches matter, but I didn’t want it to be the same as every hat I design. Just like in dance, there is usually a certain flow that needs to happen but you want it to be different and to stick out so others will remember it. The band is made using a stitch that will work up more quickly than a traditional slip stitch band.

I made a quick video tutorial on how to work the Double Slip Stitch of the band. I think you will love this technique, it is fun and works up quicker than the traditional slip stitch bands. Check it out for yourself below:

Body of the Hat

Next came the main body of the hat. I wanted to have a feminine look to the stitch work. Something a little delicate but still creates some warmth. The repetitive stitches create a lovely look, don’t you think:

Materials Needed for Dotty’s Dream Hat

  • Crochet Hook Size G (4.0 mm)
  • Crochet Hook Size I (5.5 mm)
  • Worsted Weight Yarn (#4) – approximately 180-225 Yards in Main Color
  • Sample (brighter pink) made in Lion Brand Jeans / color: Bermuda
  • Sample (lighter pink) made in Mighty Stitch / color: Blush
  • Yarn Needle, Scissors, Measuring Tape

FREE Merino Thick & Thin Newborn Hat Patterns

Newborn photographs are one of the most treasured keepsakes you will ever have so you must have the right props. The fresh and delicateness of newborn life is embraced with the uniqueness of Merino Thick & Thin yarn but it doesn’t take away from the focus of the newborn.

Crocheting with custom dyed yarn will not only result in a new love of yarn to crochet with, but you will also find these hats to work up quick. As you crochet you will feel the luxuriousness of the yarn in your fingers and be so excited to put it on a newborn baby.

Three Different Merino Hat Styles To Choose From

Each hat design has a different personality, but they all share the sweet look to them. The uniqueness of the thick and thin yarn creates almost a bubble like look to the fabric that is crocheted. It naturally tightens and loosens between each stitch.

The Merino Thick & Thin Hat pattern styles that I will be sharing with you include a Pixie Hat, a traditional Beanie and a Pixie Bonnet style.

Which style do you want to make? The great thing about these patterns is the minimal amount of thick & thin yarn they use. For Instance, with one 90 yard skein, I was able to make one hat of each design.

  8. Ch 2, hdc in each st across, fasten off and weave in ends
  9. Continue to tassel instructions

Adding Braid / Ties & Tassels to the Bonnet

There are 2 options that I have used for the ties and/or tassels. I usually use whichever one I have enough yarn for. If you are running short of yarn, check out the top row of images in the above graphics. Those hats demonstrate the ties/braid option resulting in using less yarn because they feature a small braid and small tassels. However, in the bottom image there are longer tassels with no braid.

Ties / Braid Option: Begin to create this option by taking 2 strands of yarn and measure about 3 feet long, then fold the yarn in half. At the fold, join with a slst in the front lower corner of the bonnet. After that step, complete as many chains as possible leaving enough yarn for a small tassel (usually about 15-22 chains), tie them off and trim up the tassels to have even ends.

Tassel Only Option: To complete the longer tassels, take the remaining yarn and fold it in half, continue folding in half until you have about 4, 6 or 8 strands, just make sure it is an even number. Split them in half and then place them in 2 separate piles. Take the first pile and fold those strands in half, now, at the fold, pull through the front lower corner of the bonnet. Continue by tying tightly with a scrap piece of yarn around the folded area and then repeat on the other side with the second group of measured out strands.

Cross My Heart Hat & Gloves Crochet Pattern Set

I am always in search of a classy, cute, unique gift set I can make. My Popular Cross My Heart Scarf & Headband has always been a favorite of many, so I added a lovely hat and fingerless gloves!

I love how beautiful the stitches in the entire Cross My Heart Collection are, and they show off perfectly in the hat and fingerless gloves.

Cross My Heart Crochet Pattern Hat & Gloves

All About that Hat (Cross My Heart-that is)

The hat is designed to have a little slouch to it, this just enhances the look of the plush stitches as the fold in the creases that create the slouch.

The hat is made from the bottom up, with the band being crocheted in an almost knit looking stitch. This streamlined stitch is soft and creates just enough elasticity to shape the hat.

The hat comes in many sizes from toddler up through adult, so go ahead and make one for everyone in the family!

Fingerless Gloves

I have to admit, I love fingerless gloves and think they are one of the most practical accessories to wear. My hands are always cold, but I need to be able to use my fingers freely. So, fingerless gloves are a must!

Just like the hat, the gloves are made with the same plush stitches that create this unique crocheted fabric. The gloves work up quick and come in sizes from toddler up through adult. These gloves can make a great last minute gift idea.

The Sprightly Yarn – my new favorite!

I made the Cross My Heart hat and fingerless gloves in Sprightly Acrylic Worsted Weight yarn. I have had the opportunity to design with this amazing yarn on multiple occasions and I really enjoy working with it.

The yarn comes in many beautiful colors (I used Dusty Rose) which we all love. The yarn is the perfect weight for most projects, is very soft and washes up well. Check out the entire color line of Sprightly yarn by using this (affiliate) link by clicking HERE.

Were you can get the Cross My Heart Patterns

You can get the Cross My Heart Hat & Gloves as a set, which has a discounted price because you are getting both patterns together. But, if you already have one and only need the other, you can also get them separately.

Have you seen the rest of the Cross My Heart Collection? It includes so many fun pieces including a vest, scarf, headband, a triangle shawl and of course the hat and gloves.

Make it in a solid color or 2, 3 or more fun colorful stripes for a fun and playful look. Then you can choose to add a pom or a jingle bell to make your hat fit your personality. The natural curve is crocheted right into the tip so it actually stands up all by itself.

I love when you can crochet a hat that can have so many looks to it. This crochet pattern is just that, the possibilities are endless.

  • newborn

  • 6-12 month

The hat is made using the popular worsted weight yarn. I love working with #4 weight yarns because they work up quick and are nice and warm for crochet hats.

Elf Hat Crochet Pattern

The curve stands up!

You got it! This photo was not photoshopped with someone holding the curve up. The curve is crocheted in the hat by alternating single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches. This adds a cute whimsical look to an already dreamy holiday.

Emerald Stone Crochet Hat Pattern

We are entering into the month of October and that means so much to me. October is Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us have unfortunately been touched by this horrible issue in our lives. Unfortunately, I lost a wonderful and amazing uncle 6 years ago to cancer. The Emerald Stone Hat was designed in honor of my uncle.

Emerald Liver Cancer Awareness

This year I wanted to focus on Liver Cancer in my hat design, the color of the awareness ribbon for liver cancer is, emerald. I find the emerald color beautiful. It is deep, rich in color and striking to look at. The meaning behind the emerald brings the color more meaning as well.

The emerald has extra benefits for those who align with its star sign, which may have helped many after ancient heroes discovered these traits giving psychological benefits: brings courage to face difficult trials, eases feelings of worry, enhances the benefits of reuniting with loved ones.

https://www.karmaweather.com/astrology-gemstones-crystals
Emerald of Hope

Explaining it a little further:

Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.

Emerald Stone Hat

The Emerald Stone Hat, was made in a beautiful “emerald” color. While I was working up the stitches I kept thinking the design was looking like stones in a river bed. I find rivers to be peaceful and soothing to the soul. Emerald Stone Hat was easy to name due to the look and meaning behind the Emerald Stone and the connection to Liver Cancer and honoring my uncle.

Emerald STone Hat

The Emerald Stone crochet hat pattern comes in 3 sizes: child (3-12 years old), youth/womens, and adult/mens. Easily customize the hat with an oversized button or attach a pom to the top for a more youthful look.

Cozy Twist Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern

Are you in need of a fun last minute gift idea? Well, I have you covered! How about a Cozy Twist Ear Warmer that can be worn 2 different ways…

Some days you may not be sure you want a full beanie or just an earwarmer…. Now, I have designed a fun option just for you. The Cozy Twist Ear Warmer is an oversized, or extra wide, Ear Warmer. This is perfect for wearing a messy bun, a pony tail or when you just want a little extra warmth.

cozy twist ear warmer crochet pattern

PLUS, the design for the Cozy Twist Ear Warmers gives you 2 ways to wear it. Simply button it up along the seam to create a full ear warmer that nearly covers your entire head. OR, just “twist” before you button and you will get a fun twist in your ear warmer.

The crochet pattern comes in sizes for Toddler, Youth and Adult. Debating what yarn to use? The Ear Warmers can also be made using a DK weight yarn or a thin Worsted Weight Yarn. Just make sure you check your gauge and adjust your hook to make sure the final size comes out just right.

I chose a fun variegated yarn that I just love. This design would also look great in an ombre yarn and of course the bold stitches would really stand out in a solid yarn. Each ear warmer you make can have a totally different look.

I will say, it is getting harder to design unique crochet hat patterns. But, when I stumbled on designing the Braided Single Crochet stitch I knew it would make a fun band on a hat.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Hat Crochet Pattern

One of Sweet Potato 3’s most popular patterns, the Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set, just got a new accessory! Because, every baby blanket needs to have a coordinating hat, you get to add that to your Sleep Tight collection.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Hat

The Sleep Tight Teddy Bear hat features the stitches that crocheters have come to love after making the blanket. The braided V Cable is so unique and fun to crochet and that stitch is featured in the hat band. A video tutorial is included in the pattern to help demonstrate each step in creating this textured stitch.

The main body of the hat uses the same stitches that are in the “pillow” section of the blanket. Therefore, the body of the hat works up fast and are very soft and warm. Add a pom if you like to add a cute whimsy touch to your finished hat.

Of course, each hat must be adorned with the sleeping teddy bear that everyone has fallen in love with.

The hat pattern comes in multiple sizes ranging from newborn, 3-6 month, 6-12 month, 12-24 month up to child (about 12 years old).

Love Bug Crochet Hat Pattern {FREE}

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I would like to take a minute and share my Love Bug Crochet Hat Pattern with all of you.

Love Bug Crochet Hat

Holiday’s are a fun time to sport a cute “themed” hat. It is an easy way to show that you enjoy a holiday and crocheting a cap is a cute way to do just that. The Love Bug Hat is very adorable with its dangling antennas topped with hearts.

About the Love Bug Hat Pattern

The Hat pattern is a basic beanie made in the popular worsted (#4) weight yarn. Any brand will work fine with this pattern as long as you make sure to match your gauge. The amount of yarn needed will be determined by what size of hat you decide to make.

The Love Bug Hat pattern comes in sizes for newborn, 3-6 month, 6-12 month, 12-24 month and child.

Another option is to omit the antennas and attach the hearts on top of the hat. This gives you a cute loving teddy bear hat which is just as cute as the love but.
