Irish Hiking Hat

(3 customer reviews)


The only winter hat you’ll ever need.
With a double-thick brim and a clever texture, this hat will ward off chilly weather.

(Hiking in Ireland not a requirement, but it is recommended)

Using  a 6.5 mm hook, and Aran weight yarn, you’ll be getting requests before you finish your first one!


This pattern uses Tunisian crochet and traditional crochet techniques and was designed to be made with a regular, short crochet hook. For best results, use a hook without an ergonomic handle.

    I was one of the members of the tester group and I love this project! It’s so much fun to make and takes advantage of the inherent textures of Tunisian Crochet to the pattern’s advantage. It’s a great travel project because it’s small and quick. You’ll also have a fantastic looking, and practical, hat at the end. All you need is yarn, a regular plain crochet hook, a measuring tape and a darning needle. I highly recommend this pattern, you’ll make lots of these for everyone you know, and 3 sizes makes it a great gift for all.

    I second everything Norm said in their review! This hat was great fun to make. My husband swears it fits the best of any cap he’s worn. The slight curve at the crown allows the cap to pull down more securely over the ears and the back of the neck, keeping him snug and warn. He’s asked for another already!
