Well, it is that time of the year when we have to think about making hats and other autumn/winter accessories. And I must admit – I love this period. I think it is probably the most inspiring time of the year for me. The weather is still nice but the heat is gone and you can finally enjoy crocheting again and create, create cute stuff for your little ones and loved ones. What can be better than that?!
Today I released two new hat patterns. They are easy and fun to make and you kind of get addicted, especially to the Pearl Cloche Hat. I created it for my friend’s daughter, but fell in love with the design and already made 5 or 6 hats. I think it is perfect for fall, still light, but so classy and versatile.
The Buttoned Brim Hat I created some time ago. I love buttons on crochet items and think they really make it stand out from the crowd. I usually think hats don’t suite me, but this one is another story, so don’t think it is just for kids – it looks wonderful on adults as well, and if you have “complicated relationships” with hats – try this one!
Tell me in the comment section – what’s your favorite hat style? Cloche, pom-pom hats or hooded cowls? My favorites for fall are cloche hats, but for winter – hooded cowls are the best!
Patterns for both hats are for special price today on Craftsy and Ravelry!

Have a great week and happy crocheting!
I’m with you on the cloche, but I love sunhats with a gently flared, large brim, too. But, yes… hoods and neck warmers — especially the one-piece ones — are the way to go when those cold winds blow! Your hooded animal cowls are really beautiful and practical — best I’ve seen — but everyone has their version of them and I, for one, am getting a little tired of seeing them. I’d like to see a few more and different patterns of simple hooded scarves like the pink one you made awhile back for your daughter. They are so practical for school or any event, or just playing outside! (This would be the longer scarf, not the earflap style hats, although those are perfect for babies and toddlers.) 🙂
Totally agree with you. I have some more projects for hooded scarves in works. 🙂
P.S. I love both of these little hats for the stitch techniques — very pretty! The buttoned cloche is my favorite. Hope to find time to make it someday! 🙂
I like both patterns very much. I think if I had to pick I would pick the Buttoned Brim Hat, I seemed to have less problems with top down hat patterns. I also have very short hair so the buttons seem to do more to accent my face.
Thank you! Actually both hats are worked from top down. I totally agree about the buttons. They work for me too, though I have a lot of hair! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Hi Vita, I love your patterns and this hat is adorable! I can see it winding up in my Ravelry library soon. ☺️ My favorite hat is a slouchy. Every thing about it screams warmth and coziness. Regardless if you use a lightweight sport yarn or a chunky superwash merino wool my heart will melt faster than snow in Texas.
