Crochet Snow Queen Hat Pattern

You guys requested it and now I am delivering my version of an Elsa crochet hat! AKA Snow Queen so I don’t get sued by Disney :) This is really just a very basic hat pattern with a crochet tiara sewn on the front. I have included the pattern for two different tiara sizes that could easily be turned into stand-alone crowns. I will also show you a picture tutorial on how to create the yarn braid. I hope all my Frozen fans enjoy this pattern! 
Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn in Turquoise blue and white. I used Loops & Threads Impeccable (sold at Michaels) in White and Aqua.  I used almost a whole skein of white for the 6-9 month size so if you are making a bigger hat you will want to buy at least two skeins.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Snowflake buttons by ArtMinds (found at Michaels)
– Mini Snowflake Ornaments (found in Michaels new Christmas display) 
Abbreviations:

Chain 38, HDC in second chain from hook and rest of way down chain, chain 1, turn (37 HDC)
Row 2: SC in first 8, HDC in next 6, DC in next 9, HDC in next 6, SC in last 8, chain 1, turn
Row 3: SC in first 3, HDC, DC + chain 2 + DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC+chain 2+ DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC, TC, TC+chain 2+TC, TC, DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC+chain 2+DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC + chain 2 + DC, HDC, SC in last 3.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat.
When finished you could also sew the ends together to make a stand-alone crown.

To make even larger Tiara/Crown, add 12 chains to starting chain and make an additional crown hump to either side of the crown. A single crown hump pattern is as follows: SC in first 3, HDC, DC + chain 2 + DC, HDC. One crown hump is equal to 6 stitches… one hump on each side equals an additional 12 stitches.

Sew on snowflakes if desired.

Now that you have your basic hat completed, sew the Tiara onto the front. You can sew all the edges down or just the sides and bottom (as I did).

To attach the hair you will want to start cutting strands of yarn that about 2.5 yards long or 48 inches when folded in half. Secure strands by looping them around the bottom single crochet edges where you want your braid to sit.

Then add more strands above the bottom edge strands to make the braid thicker and the hair fuller. You could really add as many as you want. I think this hat would look great with more hair but you have to decide how heavy you want it. I didn’t want it to be too heavy for my daughter. I also didn’t want it sliding off her head.
Next you will want to twist the edge of the hair like the picture below. Tie the top of the pony tail with a with a strand of yarn and add a large snowflake if you want. 

Braid yarn leaving it loose at the top and then making the braid as tight as you can at the bottom. Tie bottom of pony tail with another strand of yarn and add a smaller snowflake. You could add as many snowflakes as you want to the braid and hat :)

    Wow Sarah…I thought I had to make a pattern like this…and there it is! You made it! Wonderful and pretty! I can only thank you for your kindness on sharing your patterns with us!!!! I made almost all your hats and they are all appreciated!

  2. says

    Love the pattern, but I can't make the tiara pattern work, it is a hot mess when I make it, and I never get to the last stitch on row 3, usually have 6 or more stitches left…..not sure what I am doing wrong

    Row 3: SC in first 3, HDC, DC + chain 2+ DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC, TC, TC + chain 2 + TC, TC, DC, HDC, SC in next 3, HDC, DC + chain 2 + DC, HDC, SC in last 3. – See more at: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2014/09/crochet-snow-queen-hat-pattern.html#sthash.OY3Mp92z.dpuf

    this is just gorgeous! my next project for sure. I do have a question though…do you know approx how many strands of yarn you used for the hair and correct me if I'm wrong but if I read this right you measure each strand at about 96 inches? thanks!

  4. says

    Love the hat! Saw it yesterday and had to make one for my Frozen lovin' niece. Just finished and will be mailing it off to her this week. Yours is way better, but thankfully my niece never notices any mistakes. I love all your patterns, maybe I'll try the animal alphabet next?!

  5. says

    Hey Sarah- love you and your patterns and your generosity in sharing your patterns! As Gramma to 3 boys and one princess, you are my "go-to" source for inspiration and design- Thank you so much!! Keep up the wonderful work!

  6. says

    I think that the amount of "hair" you put on this hat is perfect for your daughter. It looks sweet and simple, not overdone. Working on my own "snow queen" hats as we speak. Thanks for sharing this tutorial and pattern with us.

    Thanks – My Daughter, Princess Elsa 😉 will love it for her halloween costume (And likely many more occasions thereafter!). The lenght of the braid, following what I interpreted your length to be, ended up VERY long though. I will have to cut it down probably 12" from the finished ends – so I should have read it as 48" THEN fold in half, rather than 48" ONCE folded in half! Oh well – easier to trim than add 😉 Thanks for all your great patterns. My kids love when they see me find something new (always for them! haha).

    Thank you so much for another easy wonderful pattern,your patterns are very easy to make the way u have written them .i always come back and make your patterns 100%reliable ,thank you soo much!

    Thank you for this pattern. I made this for my daughter yesterday. She loves it. I made crochet snowflakes. And I used a yarn that I had . I used red heart white for the hat portion which worked up fast. And silky soft deep tourquoise for the tiara. And I used a sparkly white yarn that has like an aura borealis tinsel thread running through it for the hair and the snowflakes. My daughter absolutely loves this hat. Much better than what you find in the stores and for less money.

    Does anyone know what the size should be for the width for a child? I have the guage right for the height but something doesn't look right for the width.

  11. says

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I've made the child size for my 5 year old today and she's thrilled. We're attending an outdoor screening of frozen tonight and it might be cold so a beanie will help to no end :) I'm just whipping up some free standing lace snowflakes on my embroidery machine to adorn the plait.

    Thank you so much for this beautiful, yet simple to follow pattern. I’ve had no problems doing it for a little 5 yr old cancer patient who has lost all her hair. She’s going to love it! It’s adorable!!!

  13. Kathleen says

    Thank you for this pattern! My granddaughter’s birthday is two weeks away, and I can easily have this done in time for her Frozen party. It’s so pretty, and I can adapt the colors. Also, she will be more likely to wear this hat outdoors, which we grandmas love. Great pattern!
