The Berry Hat

The Berry Hat by Hookoflove

This hat is worked from the bottom to the top.

The stitch used is the Raspberry stitch. I simply love this stitch. Doesn’t it look yummy?!

Instruction is given for a fitted hat.

To achieve a slouchy fit, work 3 or 4 more rows before decreasing

The Slouchy Berry Hat


Yarn: 1 skein of Lion Brand Heartland

Crochet Hook Size: 4 mm for the band and 5 mm for the body


beg = beginning

blsc = back loop single crochet

Ch= chain

CL = (1 sc, 1 dc, 1 sc) in same designated stitch

hdc = half double crochet

sc = single crochet = slip stitch

st = stitch

sk = skip

sctog = single crochet 2 stitches together (decrease)

Making the Band of the hat -ribbing

with  4 mm hook

Ch 9

Row 1 :  1 sc in each st (8 sc), ch 1, turn

Working on back loop of stitches only

Row 2: 1 blsc on each sc across, ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until band measures 19 inches when lightly stretched. To make a child size hat make a smaller band. for adult size hat make the band longer. When lightly stretched the band should fit around the head of the person you are making the hat for.

Fold band, sew the band or slip slitch to form a ring (matching the 8 sc of the foundation chain to the 8 sc of last row)

The Body of the Hat

working CL on the band

The hat is crochet using the Raspberry stitch
The raspberry stitch is worked on the wrong side of the work. 
The band does not have a wrong or right side. Choose the side you like best and make it your right side

Attach yarn to the side of the band that would be the inside of the hat

Round 1: Ch 1, work 30 CL evenly around the band, to 1st sc

Round 2– ch 1, CL in same space as, *sk next dc and sc, CL in first sc of next CL, repeat all around, sl. st. to the first sc (30 CL)

Round 3 – 15 as Round 2

Start decrease  (for a slouchy hat work more rows before stating to decrease)

The decrease is done on the right side of the work. Turn your work, right side facing out.

Note: use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the row. As the opening get smaller and smaller this will help you keep track of the starting of next row.

Round 16– ch 1, 1 sc in same space, *1 sctog next 2 stitches (sctog will be done on the dc, and  sc of previous row), 1 sc in next sc, repeat from* around, to 1st sc
