Would you like to make a rib knit hat but don’t knit? Well, knitters can’t hog all the fun if you can crochet you can make a rib knit style winter hat to!
Years ago my husband needed some new winter hats or toques as we call them here in Canada. At the time I didn’t know how to knit but I loved to crochet. Most crochet hats look very soft and feminine and that really wasn’t the style my hubby was wanting. So I came up with an easy to make crochet hat pattern that looks just like knit ribbing.
- It’s a unisex pattern I’ve made many of these hats for kids, men, teens and woman alike and they’ve all loved the style.
- This hat keeps you warmer than most knitted winter hats because crochet stitches are thicker.
- This crochet ribbed hat pattern is quick and easy to work up! It makes a great beginner pattern to.
My favourite yarn for these hats is Bernat Roving. It’s a bulky yarn that’s 80% acrylic and 20% wool, it does need hand washing but works up quickly and stays soft. However, any bulky yarn that you love will work well for this hat.

Fold the hat in half matching up first and last rows. Slip stitch the seam together, fasten off yarn after last stitch.
Leaving a long tail weave a running stitch around the top edge of the hat, pull to gather. Knot yarn. If there is a small opening at the top sew closed with remaining tail yarn, knot off and weave the end in.
If you are having problems finding Bernat Roving yarn locally it can be ordered from Amazon. I find they have a better price than I can find locally.
