Mini Puff Stitch Crochet Hat Tutorial

Mini Puff Stitch Crochet Hat Tutorial

I have a quick crochet hat pattern in what I’m calling the mini puff stitch for you today. I started with a traditional puff stitch, but felt it was a bit too much for what I had in mind. So I modified it to a smaller version. It gave the stitches just the right amount of interest to be repeated through the hat.

This hat is designed to fit teen/sm adults, but I created a new version of this hat here which is available in sizes 0-3mos up to Adult, if you’re looking for another size.

Materials:

Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn in Everglades*

Hook size H*

yarn needle*

scissors




Notes:

Finished hat measures 7 1/2″ tall, add more rounds after #22 for a longer hat &  it’s 18 1/2″ around at it’s widest.

Ch 1 doesn’t count as a stitch.

MP-mini puff stitch: insert hook in stitch, yarn over (yo), pull up a loop (2 loops on hook) yo and insert hook in the same, yo and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook),  yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook. Mini Puff Stitch photo tutorial here.

GAUGE:

Gauge is important to this pattern, adjust your hook size or tension accordingly.

4″x 4″ = 10 mb x 12 rounds

Love how the texture turned out in this one-not too much, just enough.

  • I am having troubles. Rows 6-7 says to repeat the previous 2 rows, but the stitch count doesn’t come out even. And since there are no stitch totals for the rows, I don’t know what the number should be. I have adapted rows 6-7
    Rounds 6-*{2 mp in the first stitch, mp 3 } repeat from *around, join with ss to first, ch 1.(35)
    Rounds 7-*{2 mp in the first stitch, mp 4 } repeat from *around, join with ss to first, ch 1.( 42)
    Is this what I should be? It feels small. I might end up going another increase row. Help, please

    • Hi Laurie,
      Thanks for reaching out. I would definitely add another increase if it seems small. This is an older pattern of mine and I have since rewritten it to fit larger and in all the sizes here: https://christacodesign.com/2018/02/26/pebbled-crochet-beanie-pattern/
      But I do need to update this older post, so thank you. I’m copying and pasting the changes here and I will update the post as well. I corrected the repeat error for 6 & 7 and I added the stitch counts. I added another rnd of increase for you too. I will update the entire post to reflect the corrections in the new Pebbled Beanie Pattern I linked. I hope this helps!

      • Wow! Thank you! I thought I was going crazy because I can’t read patterns well and I was drawing little diagrams trying to figure things out 😛
