This free crochet pattern is for the Chunky Knit-Like Hat that is inspired by the hat Team USA was wearing at the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea in 2018.
It seems that the hat not only looked awesome and cozy, but also turned into a new crochet trend over night. Well, I loved it as much as everyone else, so I had to make one for myself as well.
And I sure love it. It so easy to make. And furthermore, it is not made like the other ones. My pattern may not look exactly like it, but it is made in a round whereas the other ones seem to be made flat first.
And yes, the pattern does come with a video tutorial. I show exactly how you can achieve the knit-like effect when crocheting the waistcoat stitch and the half double crochet.
And did you see the huge fluffy pom-pom? I love it. Believe it or not, I made the pom pom using my iphone 7 Plus. Haha. It was the perfect size for it. And it turned out great, right?

1 wst and 1 bp hdc x 2 rounds = 1 square inch

Ch 40, slip stitch the ends together to make a circle (tutorial to prevent twisting is HERE)
Round 1: Ch 1, 1 sc in each st, sl st to the first st (40 sts)
Round 2 – 25: Ch 1, * 1 bp hdc, 1 wst, repeat from *all around, sl st to the first st
Fasten off and weave the end through the top rim, then pull tight to close the hole.
To make the pom pom, I wrapped my yarn around my iphone 7 Plus.
Then tied the strands together in the middle before cutting them on the loops to make the pom pom fluffy.
Also I gave it a quick “hair cut” to look even and then attached it to the Chunky Knit-Like Hat.
The final hat looks like this.
