Granny Stripes Hat

This is a really nice crochet granny stripes hats. This free pattern is for adult women. I decided to try this pattern from a different perspective using one of the latest yarns by Yarnspirations. This yarn is Bernat Super Value but there is a new version as of 2015. It’s called Bernat Super Value Stripes.

Bernat Super Value Stripes

The very convenient thing about this yarn is that the colours stay the same colour for a long stretch before instantly transitioning to the next colour. There are 8 different colourways to choose from in this new yarn brand. See the examples below. The blue version is Bernat Super Value Stripes Meadow and the brightly coloured version is Bernat Super Value Stripes Spice.

If you decide to use this yarn instead of the recommended Bernat Super Value regular style. You will use about 60% of a ball to make one of these adult hats.

The brim is just using Bernat Super Value. I used the colour Grass for the brightly coloured version and Navy for the blue version.

Suggested Change – Sizing

In the picture above, you will notice the blue version is slightly bigger. It’s not a zoomed picture, it is bigger. The blue version is the original pattern. I’m a loose crocheter, so it was too big for my head.

In the video tutorial, I also talk about this as being one of my issues. So I show how you can change the pattern to make it smaller. So if you are loose like me, if you don’t follow the instruction in Round 6 and just skip over it, you will end up with a smaller hat. Round 6 is a growth round of making it the final size. However, it takes several more revolutions after this round before the hat starts to show it’s true size.

Word of Caution – I noticed when making the brightly coloured version that I thought I might have been wrong to eliminate Round 6. However, once I got to the brim area, I noticed it was fitting perfectly. I was having self doubt during the making of it whenever it was going to be too small. I wasn’t giving the yarn a chance to relax and get to it’s full size.

If you are unsure if you are a loose crocheter and do Round 6. Mark that round with a stitch marker. You will realize about half way to the brim that it will be too big for you. You can pull out your stitches back to Round 6 and eliminate round 6 completely and then continue as normal.

  1. I am looking for written pattern for the Granny Stripes hat. Thank you in advance and thank you for all your beautiful patterns and for sharing.

  2. Just finished and love it. I did put in the sixth row, so either I have a big head or, I am a tight crocheter. Mikey is an excellent teacher, he makes me feel like I can crochet anything. I am also color choice impaired, wish Diva Dan would put some groupings together. Didn’t have this yarn, but sure am going to order it, it’s beautiful.

  3. Perfect thank you wish we could get this yarn locally in the UK, I can get some red heart like Detroit for example , I usually use an aran or dk we don’t have the array of colours in aran as in dk and I love aran thickness thanks again Mikey x

    • How do I get a written pattern. I love the granny stripe hat. Along with all your lovely patterns. Tuturiols dont work for me I am a paper person. . Would love a down load version . Please help me .. tha is again

    • I’m wondering how do you make this bigger. I made one that seem to be too small. I know this because I did all the round in pattern. My hat came out 10″ long by 8 1/2″ wide. I think it going to be too small for my boyfriend. I use mandala sparkle and now working on another one in Bernat Pop. I think the Bernat pop is going to be small too. I use a us h / 5.0mm

      • Increase your hook size up. I would also do a gauge check as well as you might be a tight crocheter on the specific yarn brand. I received your email in our helpdesk as well and that’s what I would say to you via email as well.
