Need an adult pirate hat


craftylady1956

Question

A few years ago I made a friend a pirate hat...pattern was on Raverly. Now I'd like to make another but pattern is no longer available.

I've hunted through all my saved patterns hoping I would've printed it out. I guess I didn't. HELP!! Thank you.

As I understand it the 'real' hats were hats with a wide brim, and the brim was tacked up to the hat in 3 places.  You'd want to do it in SC, tightly, to keep it from being too floppy.  So, any beanie pattern would work; stop above the ears, and then make a flat brim--for SC, that means adding 6 sc evenly spaced each round.

Here is one https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/three-corner-pirate-hat

A couple of kid sized ones you might be able to size up if its for a non-kid:

This is an older pattern for a tri-corner hat and the photos are not available but the pattern is there.

You could use a pattern for a plain sunhat with a brim that has a rounded top and just tack the brim up in 3 places.

As I said, you don't need a specific pattern for the pirate hat - look for a plain adult size beanie made in SC, made top down as most are, and make a wide brim--by adding 6 stitches spaced evenly each round.  That's all it is, except folding up the brim and tacking it down by following a photo.  It would be cool to borrow the scull and crossbones from one of the kid sized hats to sew on, tho.

Unfortunately he only one I found specifically adult sized was discontinued; I was looking for both free and not free patterns on Ravelry.

To make a hat in plain SC without a pattern - link to hat size charts from babies to grownups.  You need to do a little math; I'm going to use my head because the math is easy - my head is 22" around.  22 divided by 3.14 (pi) is as close to 7" as you can get.  So for me or anyone else with a 22" head, I'd make a flat circle* that is 7" in diameter in SC, and then work without increasing until it is long enough to reach a bit above the ears (look at the photos).

*as I said in the post above - start with 6 stitches, and add 6 each round.  Here is a 'recipe':

rnd 1: make an adjustable ring, and put 6 SC into it.  Or if you prefer, chain 2 and put 6 SC into the chain next to the knot.  Mark the beginning or end of rows so you can keep your place.

rnd 2: *sc in the next 1 stitch, 2 sc in the next;, repeat around (you should have 12 sc)

rnd 3:*sc in the next 2 stitches, 2 sc in the next;, repeat around (you should have 18 sc)

rnd 4:*sc in the next 3 stitches, 2 sc in the next;, repeat around (you should have 24 sc)

Continue as above, except each round adds 1 more plain stitch between increases, until you get the diameter you need (like 7" for my head), and stop increasing (but remember the number of stitches between stitches at the point you stopped, you will need it for the brim).  Keep going around on the same # of stitches until you reach the point you want to add the brim, then re-start the pattern of increasing 6 stitches all around at the next number of plain stitches between increases that you left off at the crown, spaced further and further apart by 1 stitch each round as before, until the brim looks the right size for folding up..  Follow the photos in the patterns I linked to sew the brim to the hat.

Or, I just noticed that one of the patterns I'd linked had multiple sizes, it is not a free pattern https://www.crochetspot.com/crochet-pattern-pirate-hat-5-sizes/  However, it is made exactly like I described above.  Pirates were a thing around 1700 plus or minus, and this pattern is a tricorn hat (brim folded up in thirds) which was in style then, not just with pirates.  Some pirate hats just folded the brim up twice, in the front ant the back; so I'd think the pattern would be the same except how you fold and tack it up to the hat part.
