Crochet Edith Inspired Hat Pattern



If you are a fan of the movie Despicable Me, you may be a fan of this Edith crochet hat! I think the one she is wearing in the cartoon is supposed to look like it is knitted but I think you can create a similar look with crochet. Be sure to also check out my Minion Hat Pattern!





Materials:
-Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Pink and Pink Poodle.
-Size H Crochet Hook
-Tapestry needle


Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
HDC = Half Double Crochet


Before starting this pattern you will need to know how to crochet a ridge. There is a really great video on crocheting ridges by Maggie’s Crochet. HERE is the video tutorial. Around 3:00 minutes into the video shows where you need to make your crochet stitches to make the ridge.


Here is also a picture of how to make the ridge. You will need to crochet in the loop UNDER (on the backside) the top of the crochet stitches of the previous round. This pushes the top of the crochet stitch from the previous round out, making the ridge. The rounds where I say “RIDGE” is where you will need to apply this technique.


Another note about this pattern: The hats should turn out long/tall. Just like Edith’s hat sits high and comes to a point instead of being rounded/flat at the top.

Earflaps for 0-3 months – Preschooler
Earflap 1: 
Earflaps work as RIDGE: Attach light pink yarn anywhere on hat (attach on loop under the top of previous stitch). Preferably space the earflaps so the seam is in the back. See my puppy hat pattern if you need help placing the earflaps.
Chain 1, SC in next 10, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC decrease, SC in next 6, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 3: SC across (8 SC)
Row 4: SC decrease, SC in next 4, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 5: SC across ( 6 SC)
Row 6: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 7: SC across (4 SC)
Row 8: Make 2 SC decreases, chain 1, turn
Row 9: SC decrease, fasten off, weave in ends

Earflap 2:

Attach yarn on opposite side to make the second earflap.
Chain 1, SC in next 10, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC decrease, SC in next 6, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 3: SC across (8 SC)
Row 4: SC decrease, SC in next 4, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 5: SC across ( 6 SC)
Row 6: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 7: SC across (4 SC)
Row 8: Make 2 SC decreases, chain 1, turn
Row 9: SC decrease, continue to SC around the earflaps, when you get to the edge of the hat, Slip Stitch in those stitches and then continue to SC around the edge of the other earflap. Remember you are working in the loops behind the previous stitch to make a ridge. Fasten off weave in ends. 

Cut 6 long strands (of light pink), pull yarn halfway through last loop of the earflaps (you now have 12 strands). Braid and knot at the end of your braid. Trim ends of braided tails so yarn is even. Do this for both earflaps.

    Hi, I am having trouble trying to get the colors to line up in the back of the hat nice and straight. I must be missing something. Should I be joining and adding a chain before I start again for (Round 10)? Just a Beginner, Mary

  2. says

    Thank you so much for the pattern/s. My grandsons, granddaughters and nieces and nephews love this movie and the characters so these will be a real treat for them and for me to give them.

  3. says

    Love it! Simple, yet so cute! You're daughter is adorable!
    Wondering…how do you tie off your braids at the end of the ear flaps? I've been using and extra piece of yarn to do the tie off..

    Thanks!

    You're baby girl is so cute! In this and the Dalmatian hat. I am trying to make puppy hat into kiity hat right now, once I found out I translated the stitch wrong and corrected it. Next puppy hat will get the new ears, they look bigger. I like the muzzle too, thanks Sarah, if only I had my computer back and fixed it could print patterns.

    I love this pattern! I made my 3 month old this beanie today! I realize now that I totally messed up and did the RIDGE rows on the back loops instead of that inside loop you have pictured. Oh well, it still looks super cute. The raised lines just aren't as noticeable.

  6. says

    The hat is perfect and the model is beautiful. My " anti-pink " daughter loves the hat so much that she asked me to make one for her. Thank you for sharing! I can't wait to see the finished product. 😀 PLEASE let us know if you design the sweater too.

  7. says

    I'm Canadian, please use my hook sizes with yours in your patterns, it would really help. thanks. now to find the hook size on a conversion website and see if I have the yarn for this cute hat.

    I have tried patterns toddler/preschooler, child, and adult. None of these fit my 2 year old. Am I missing something?

  11. Peggy says

    This is the hardest directions I have come across for crocheting at this point and time of crocheting. If you reply to this, I have some questions for you. Thank you, Peggy

  12. Julie Mui says

    Not sure if you know, your minion pattern is coming up with an error message. Says it can’t be found. It’s my go-to base hat pattern.
    Thank you!

  13. Elaine says

    I love all your hat patterns!! I have found a recurring problem for me – when I am done, my hats have a diagonal “line” where I have joined each row. I took a picture, but I don’t know how to send a pic through this comment box. Some yarns seem to be more noticeable than others. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just how the pattern works up? Thanks for your help!

  14. Nichole says

    I love all of your patterns! I was a little sad today to see you pulled your minion hat pattern as I have used that hat pattern as a baseline for most of the hats I make :( has it been moved?
