Lattice Hat

Yesterday, I finished a really pretty looking Lattice hat. It is not my pattern, but I would like to give credit to Sarah Arnold for uploading it on Ravelry (link to free pattern is here).

I absolutely love her pattern. I was completely overwhelmed on how many people loved this hat.

However, it is not a pattern for a beginner and has some difficulties within it. But because I made it before and needed to make another one anyways, I decided to take several pictures along the way and make a video on the most difficult part of the pattern as I had trouble finding a video on how to do the Lattice Treble Cluster (LTC) myself before.

Furthermore, I was asked multiple times to please make a video which I was happy to create.

Side note: I was in contact with Sarah Arnold regarding me making a video as well as posting pictures to teach a part of her pattern. She gave me permission to do just that. Thank you Sarah!


So lets go right in it. Be sure to have the pattern already available while viewing the pictures or video below, as I will not retype the pattern here (due to copyright law).

The picture below shows that after row 3:


See the picture below for repeat sequence of row 4:



Row 5’s repeat sequence is shown on the picture below:


For row 6 see my picture below how this repeat will look like:


Row 7 is seen on the picture below:



Following row 7, this will be row 8:


The next steps are shown in the video below:

Following the rows that include the LTC, you will add the rim of the hat using fpdc and bpdc, see my tutorial on how to do that stitch here.

The hat will in the end look like this:



I hope this short tutorial using photos and a video was helpful for this pattern. Again, this pattern is not mine and credit goes to Sarah Arnold. I really love how this pattern looks especially using a caron cake. Really pretty.

    1. Hi Christina,
      First of all, I need to mention again, that this is not my pattern, but Sarah Arnolds. Secondly, yes, you can make this a toddler size. This is how I would do it: Measure the head circumference of the toddler you are trying to make it for. Divide that number by 3.41 which gives you the diameter of the hat size you need to make. If you have ever done a hat before, you properly know that after a certain amount of increases you do not increase anymore and stay at the same number of stitches per round. So, while you are increasing measure the diameter of the circle you are creating. Stop increasing when you reached the preferred diameter size. Then you go right into the part where it says do double crochets in each stitch (row 8), following with row 9. The only thing that should be different between the original pattern and your pattern would be the amount of stitches per round and the amount of single crochet placed between the LTC’s (you might only have 1 or 2 you are placing there). Try it out. To figure out whether you have the correct amount of single crochets will be seen by looking at where the LTCs tip is. Is it in the middle between 2 LTCs (or fpdc if it is the first time doing the LTCs)? Is it creating a symmetrical diamond? Once you see it does, keep going with pattern repeats (just adjusting the amount of single crochets) until about 1 inch from the amount of hat height you want/need as you need to attach the rim of fpdc/bpdc after that. I hope this is clear. If not, please let me know and I will try to be more clear.
      Another way to “shrink” the pattern would be to use thinner yarn and a smaller hook size (like a 3mm for example). You can try that out too and see if that helps. Important is always to check the diameter of the circle before the rows start that would not be increasing the stitch amount per row/round anymore. Does that make sense?
