Are you looking for the best crochet hat patterns out there that use worsted weight yarn? You are in the right place! I’ve put together a list of more than 15 worsted weight hat patterns that are perfect for crocheters of all skill levels!
Are you a hat person?
I’m guessing you probably are if you came to this post. 😉
And you’re not the hat person, there is probably someone in your life who IS!
That’s how it is for me. Personally, I don’t wear a lot of hats, so if I’m crocheting a hat it is most likely going to be for a loved one.
Whatever reason you’re looking for a crochet hat pattern today, you’re going to find a bunch of cool ones in this list! The best part is: all these hats use worsted weight yarn.
What is worsted weight yarn?
Worsted weight. Though the term sounds a little strange, it’s not hard to understand at all. Worsted weight yarn is considered a “classic” yarn weight. It’s not too thick, and not too thin, so it is also considered to be perfect for crochet beginners.
Another way you can think of the word “worsted” when it comes to yarn is medium weight. It’s not bulky, and it’s not thin and lacy. It is right in the middle!
What type of yarn is best for hats anyway?
While you can use a variety of yarn weights when crocheting a hat, worsted weight is by far the most common. Worsted weight yarn and crocheted hats are just two things that work well together, you know? Worsted weight yarn makes for a warm hat, without it being too bulky on your head.
Because it does make for such nice hats, I decided to put together this list of patterns. So without further ado, let me know you over 15 crochet hats that use worsted weight yarn!
