These little pilgrim hats are so quick and easy to make that you can make at bunch really quickly!  I think these would be really cute place markers at your Thanksgiving table!

Crochet Pilgrim Hat

Pattern created by Gayle

Pilgrim Hat 11-2-09 021 (Medium)

Size: Approximately 2 inches tall


  • Worsted weight yarn.  I used Red Heart Super Saver, Color:  Black
  • Worsted weight yarn.  Small amount of Gold or Yellow.  I used gold.
  • Stitch marker (I use a small piece of a contrasting color of yarn)
  • Crochet Hook – Size G

Gauge: Not important

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch, sc inc = single crochet increase.

Notes: This hat is made in rounds.  Rounds are worked in continuous spirals, do not join.  Do not turn at the end of each round.


  1. chain 2.
  2. 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Mark first st for beginning of round and move marker up for each round.
  3. 2 sc in each sc around – 16 sc.
  4. In back loops only, 1 sc in each sc around – 16 sc.
  5. Working in both loops again, 1 sc in each sc around for 4 rounds – 16 sc in each round.
  6. In front loops only, 1 sc in each sc around – 16 sc.
  7. Working in both loops again, *sc inc, 1 sc in next sc* around – 24 sc.
  8. *sc inc, 1 sc in next 2 sc* around – 32 sc.
  9. Sl St.
  10. Finish off and weave in yarn ends.

Pilgrim Hat 11-2-09 002 (Medium)

Belt  – to go around Hat (The belt is not worked in rounds.)

  1. Ch 21 (Depending on your gauge you may have to chain more or less.  Make the chain long enough to go around the hat as shown in the photos.)
  2. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain.
  3. Finish off leaving a yarn tail long enough to sew belt onto hat.
  4. Using a small amount of gold or yellow yarn, sew a buckle onto the middle of the belt by making a rectangle with straight stitches.  I knotted the gold yarn and hid the yarn ends in the belt.


  1. Sew the belt onto the hat with the yarn ends.

You are finished!

    OHMYWORD – that hat is SO cute! I should really learn how to crochet. Is there a difference between crocheting & knitting??
    Happy Friday!

    Hi Angela!
    Yes, and it’s a pretty big difference (at least to me it is!) Try picking up one of those learn to crochet kits and a skein of yarn, or check out some videos on the internet.

    wow! i love the hat on the monkey! did you design the hat because it was a good idea, or for the monkey?

  • 12 Gayle // Nov 20, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Hi lizzie!
    Thank you! I designed the monkey last year and the hat this year. I didn’t design the hat to fit on the monkey on purpose. It just worked out that

    Thanks for sharing this pattern! I crocheted a Tom Turkey, but he looked like he needed a little something. This pilgrim hat was just the thing!

    Gayle: This hat is just what I was looking for. I make and sell doll clothes giving 50% of all sales directly to charity. Recently I began “dressing” my wine bottles (yes, yes I did) and this hat fits perfectly with the turkey I designed. Since that time I have had requests to purchase the wine bottle covers, but cannot sell this one without your permission. If you contact me directly I am happy to send you a photo. Thank you for your consideration, your permission goes a long way toward helping others in my community. Kathy
