It appears I have paper on the brain at the moment. Not satisfied with paper-cutting, I’ve taken to re-creating paper in crochet form.
This crochet paper boat hat pattern includes instructions to make a range of sizes for the daintiest newborn photo prop through to a full-of-fun adult size.
The paper boat hat is worked seamlessly from front to back with turn-ups to create the shape. While it is suggested you use white or cream as newspaper colours, some variegated yarns can produce nice print effects so don’t be afraid to experiment.
YOU WILL NEED up to 200 m (218 yds) Aran/WW yarn in main colour, a 5.00 mm hook, a needle for neatening ends and a stitch marker.
An optional life preserver trim is provided and will require oddments of red, white and brown yarn.
Pattern is written in UK terms with a table of US equivalents provided as applicable.
Pattern is fully tested.
While this hat was designed to look like a paper boat, it also makes a great pirate dressing up hat when worked in black. So, to make this an option, I have included a BONUS skull applique in the download section for you to use. The skull applique pattern can also be purchased separately here.
