October 2021 rings in the kick-off with hat month here at The Crochet Crowd. Crochet hats are charity builders. We did the 30 days of hats back in 2014 and thought it was great exposure for hats that slide under the radar.

Not all of our choices will have matching tutorials but I know many of you are comfortable with reading patterns as well.

I have three all-time favourite hats that I actually wear myself. 

  1. 5 Star Beanie Crochet Hat with Pom Pom
  2. Crochet Nor’ Easter Hat (in our book)
  3. Crochet Spiral Step Hat

As the month goes on, I will keep adding more hats that you may have never seen before. Stay tuned. 


Crochet this incredible and easy-to-follow Stepping Texture Hat (IN BROWN) pattern. It doesn’t take much for you to see the stepping texture causes a spiral feature to appear on the hat. It reminds me of cabling to some degree.

I also did the Stepping Texture Hat in gray in pre-made pom-pom. I double-stranded medium #4 – 4 ply yarn using Red Heart Heat Wave. I gifted my hat to Sarah at the local farmer’s market as they were doing outdoor displays during the cooler fall months and thought the gray which suited her styling with the neon green pom would be a splash of colour.

    Stepping texture was one of my first hats. Works up amazingly easy. I absolutely love the work you do. Very appreciative of everything that comes from the crochet crowd.

    Stepping Texture is my go to hat to make. It always works up beautifully and so easy to make once you get the concept down. I’ve made this pattern in adult to toddler size.

      We don’t provide notifications for the website as that would require us to collect your personal data which I don’t believe in doing on our system. When we do challenges, we immediately delete emails after a draw.
