Warm crocheted hat

I had to take a break from embroidery, so I picked up a quick crochet project. I had a new skein of super Chucky that I decided to turn into a hat

After perusing patterns, I found this hat pattern (link at bottom) that said it could be made in 30 minutes, so I stepped up to the challenge. I don’t consider myself anything more than an average hooker, but this was an easy pattern. I really like how it worked the ribbing, which has always been an issue for my beginner brain when making a beanie.

The big question though… How long did it take me to make it? About an hour with the usual momma interruptions from husband, 2 kids and our 4 fur children, but with practice, I would be much faster at it. Don’t know if I could make it in 30 though .


Cute! It does look nice and warm!

Looks so warm and cozy! I don’t know that even an advanced hooker could make one in 30 minutes or under, but you never know. I may be up for that challenge because I have a skein of super chunky in my stash!


Looking just right for cozy season which is nigh!

I’ve been hit with hourly notifications on my phone of our impending freeze warning tonight. The Weather Channel is acting like it’s going to be a meteorological catastrophe. OY! Enough already…

And I might just wear my hat out tomorrow when I take my DD to school in the freezing temperatures to appease the weather gods. :laughing:


Very cute. I love the texture you got with the chunky yarn.

I taught myself from an “I Taught Myself Crochet!” book from Joann back in 2009. Now there are lots of videos to learn from, too. I love crochet!

Your hat is super cute. I almost want to see how fast I can make one now. Everyone says I crochet fast, but 30 minutes for a chunky hat seems a little crazy even to me. :crazy_face:

Editing to add… I worked it up. It took me 34 minutes, 56 seconds from start to finish for the adult size. I did not add a pom pom. I will make a post for my hat tomorrow when I can get better pictures.


I was going to ask whether the 30 minutes included the pom pom. Turned out very cute!

Nope, didn’t include the pom pom.
