Veneto V-Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern

Veneto V-Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern




The Veneto Hat will keep you warm and looking stylish through the winter. Crocheted with the versatile v-stitch in bulky yarn this hat works up quickly, and showcases the yarn’s color.

To make them both, get the Veneto Scarf pattern also. This is my favorite crochet set. I adore this yarn. I kept a swatch of it in my purse waaaay past hat weather just so I could squish it. 

The colorways available in Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick & Quick are all so stunning. If you love a neutral they have gorgeous options, plus plenty of colors for those of us who love color!

I love working with squishy bulky yarn in the winter. Hats work up so quickly anyway, but put some chunky yarn on my hook and eccola a new winter perfect hat in record time. 

This hat is worked bottom up and looks great finished off with a pom pom.

Pattern Notes:

  1. This hat is worked from the bottom up. First you’ll work the brim in rows and sew it together to form the band. Then you’ll join your yarn to the top of the brim and crochet the rest of the hat in rounds. To join the rounds you will slip stitch (ss) the last stitch of the round to the first stitch.
  2. The pattern multiple is 3 + 2 for the foundation chain. I’ve provided all sizes here, but you may want to adjust for a custom fit, as every head varies 🙂
  3. The individual ‘V’ stitches measure 1″ tall and the ‘V’ stitch + ch 1 measure 1.5″ wide.
  4. If you’d like a little more stretch to your brim or find the starting row a bit tight, you might try starting with a foundation dc row in the same number of stitches as Row 1, instead of a starting with a chain.
