Make the Cookies and Cream Hat with just one skein of yarn and this free crochet pattern. The black and white colorway combined with the moss stitch creates a lovely ombre effect. Keep reading for the free pattern.
Crochet a Matching Hat and Cowl
This Cream/Black colorway paired with the moss (granite) stitch creates a woven appearance that is so beautiful. This hat matches my Cookies and Cream Cowl, which is a free, one skein pattern that was part of my 2017 Seven Days of Scarfie collection. The Cookies and Cream Hat takes about half of a skein of Scarfie yarn, so make two or save your leftovers!

7 sts x 6 rows = 2” in BLO SC

Note: You will be working in rows first to make the ribbed edge of the hat
Row 1: SC in the second ch from the hook and SC across (12). Turn.
Row 2-50: ch 1, SC in the BLO across (12). Turn.
When you finish the ribbed band, fold it so that Row 1 and 50 are on top of on another. Working through the back loop of Row 50 and the front loop of Row 1, seam the two rows together by slip stitching across. Do not cut your yarn. Continue on to work in rounds along the “raw” edge of ribbed band.
Round 1: ch 1, SC around the top of the band working one stitch per row (50). Attach to first SC of the round with a sl st.
Round 2: ch 1, *SC, ch 1, skip 1, repeat from * around. Attach to the first SC of the round with a sl st (50).
Round 3: ch 2, skip 1, SC in ch space from previous round, *ch 1, skip 1, SC in the ch space from the previous round, repeat from * around. Attach to the 2nd ch from the starting ch 2 with a sl st. (50)
Rounds 4-22: Continue repeating Round 2 (on even rounds) and Round 3 (on odd rounds).

Round 24: ch 1, *SC2Tog around (20). Join to the first st of the round with a sl st.
Tie off leaving a long (approx. 12”) tail of yarn. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn back and forth through the stitches of Round 24. Pull tight to cinch the top of the hat closed. Make and attach a pom pom if desired. Weave in all ends.
