Winnie the Pooh Crochet Hat Pattern for Toddler (+ sizing guide)

2:30 PM


I'm getting ready for winter and Halloween by making my son some hats of his favorite characters. I started with Winnie the Pooh. :D

I usually don't work with bulky yarns but I found the perfect color for Winnie the Pooh in that weight. It's Loops & Threads Charisma in Yellow. Not too light or too orangey!

I made this hat to fit my almost 2 year old and he has a head circumference of 19". There's more information on sizing and gauge below. I also added a little guide at the end of the pattern so you can make it in a different size.

Note I've only made this pattern once and it hasn't been tested. This pattern isn't as detailed or photo heavy as my other ones. But if I keep writing up patterns this way, I think I'd be able to offer more free patterns. :)





Materials & Tools:

Abbreviations & Stitches:
  • ch - chain
  • dc - double crochet
  • sc - single crochet
  • sc2tog - single crochet 2 stitches together

It fits my 2 year old.

Sizing Guide:

If you'd like to make this in a different size, here is a mini guide.

If you don't have measurements, you can use ones from these sizing charts:


1. Take the head measurement and minus 1 or 2 inches for negative ease.
Example: 19" - 2" = 17"

2. Start working the pattern and after a few rounds, measure the stitches per inch and multiple it by the finished measurement.
Example: 2.5 stitches per inch x 17" = 42.5

3. Figure out how many increase rounds you need to reach that number. Depending on the number, you can round the number up or down.
Example: 10 (starting number) x 4 increase rounds = 40
Since my number is already two inches negative ease, I decided to add another increase round to add 2 more stitches to get to 42.

4. Now work even in double crochet until you reach just about the height you want and leave some space to do the red single crochet edging after.
Example: I did 5 rounds to get to 6 3/4 inches. 

5. Next the earflaps! This isn't exact-- it's just some guesswork here. Decide on how many stitches you need for each earflap and the spacing between them. They're positioned to be closer to the back of the hat with more stitches in the front than the back.

6. Now you can add the edging and other details. You may need to size up or down the eyes, ears, snout, and nose.


If you make this hat, I'd love to see it! Please add it on Ravelry or post photos in the comments.
