This easy ski hat pattern makes a perfect weekend project or last minute gift idea. If you’re new to crocheting it’s also a great introduction to hat making! The Downhill Skier pattern is worked using a super bulky yarn, a large hook, and basic crochet stitches. Since it’s crocheted flat (in rows) from side to side you’ll be able to achieve the perfect fit.

Hat Pattern
Ch 21 (21, 25, 25), sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch to end, turn -- 20 (20, 24, 24) sc.

Row 1: Ch 1, hdc in each st across, turn -- 20 (20, 24, 24) hdc.

Repeat this row until piece measures 14 (16, 18, 20)” from beginning, or until piece measures desired length (this length is the circumference of your hat).

Last Row: Fold your piece so the long edges are aligned. Ch 1, sl st through next st working through both edges of fabric to hold piece together.

Continue from * across next 19 (19, 23, 23) sts.

Fasten off.

Attach yarn to one short, open end. Work 28 (32, 36, 40) sc sts evenly spaced around opening. Use the method of 2 sts per inch to evenly space your sc.

Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.

Cut a length of yarn about 24” long. Lace this piece of yarn through the sts 1.5 (1.5, 2, 2)” below unedged opening.

Pull yarn tight to create a gathered “pompom” effect and tie off as desired.
