This free crochet pattern is for a striped hat using the silt stitch. This pattern is made of a fold-over brim, basic crochet stitches as well as Brava yarn from WeCrochet. The pattern includes a full video tutorial for the silt stitch.
I love crocheting hats. It’s my favorite pattern to make and design. And yes it’s ironic, cause I live in sunny San Diego and never need to wear hats unless I drive up to the mountains. But I grew up in Germany and we had very cold winters and I loved wearing hats during those times.
This hat got inspired by me teaching the Silt Stitch during an exclusive crochet along in my membership “The Crochet Club”. I love it so much and even mentioned how amazing this stitch will look using 2 different colored yarn skeins to make a project. Well, here is the finished product!
Bottom Up Crochet Hat Pattern
Hats can be made in 3 different ways. Well, the Bottom Up Hat technique is one of my favorites. You start the hat by making the ribbed brim. Then you crochet rounds of a certain pattern and finish it up by closing the top and adding an optional pom pom.
For bottom-up hats, especially those which have fold-over brims I love to add pom poms. I must say this hat looks not only fun to make but also elegant and stylish, with one of my favorite yarn colors: purple! YAY!

Free Written Pattern for the Striped Hat with fold over brim
You’ll crochet the brim first. You can decide whether you will make it fold over or not. Then you will work from the bottom up to crochet the striped silt stitch section before adding a pom pom.
With the purple yarn Ch 20 (for the fold-over brim) or Ch 10 (for a non-folder brim). Learn more about how to make a crocheted brim here.
R1: starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc in each ch, turn
R2: 1 sc in the blo in each st, turn
Repeat R2 until you have it long enough to measure the head circumference.
Once you finished the brim, fold it in half and slip stitch the first and last row together to make a loop. Then start with the body of the hat.
Striped Silt Stitch Hat Body
To start with the body, first crochet one even round of sc all around the edge of the brim. Make sure to have a multiple of 3 stitches. For an adult hat, I had 63 sc stitches.
Now follow the pattern repeat below:
R1: With the white speckled yarn, crochet:
*[1sc, 2 dc] in the same stitch, sk 2, repeat from *
R2: With the purple yarn, crochet:
1 ATC (or ch 3 and count as stitch), 1 dc in each st, turn
Now repeat R1 and R2, until you reach the hat height as mentioned in the chart above, for the head you are making the hat for.
For an adult hat, I made 14 rounds, finishing with a purple round.
Now use your purple yarn and cut it so you have about 12 inches. Weave the yarn end around every 3-4 stitches through the last round. Then pull and close the hat on the top.
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Optional Add a Pom Pom
You can optionally add a pom pom. I made one using my pom pom maker and the purple yarn.
