Crochet Hat Holder | Free Pattern
This crochet hat holder is inspired by macrame style. I turned this piece into a crochet pattern using the Alpine Stitch which gives me a boho vibe decor look. It makes a beautiful touch to your wall decor and also a perfect gift idea. This project is easy and fast.
If you enjoy my crochet content but you don't feel like to purchase my patterns it's absolutely ok.:) That's why my patterns are free on my blog so it can be available for everyone!
There's also another way though how to support my work with Buy Me a Coffee (my version is Buy Me Yarn, you know why:) ). It cost you even less than my actual patterns. You can check the link above or the button below for more details.
BIG THANKS for everyone who supports me by purchases, likes, shares, comments, tags or/and feedbacks! It means a lot to me.
If you are more a visual learner I've got you covered with my full video tutorial on my YouTube where I explain this pattern step by step.

ROW 57 - FPDC around the first regular DC from the previous row (technically it’s the 3rd DC from the previous row, it’s because we decreased the fist two sts into one of the SC row), then regular DC. You repeat it untilt the end of the row. Your last st is FPDC around the last regular DC from the previous row. Ch 1. Turn

ROW 61 - Repeat Row 57
ROW 62 - Repeat Row 58 (12 sts in total)
ROW 63 - Repeat Row 57
ROW 64 - Repeat Row 58 (10 sts in total). Secure the hat holder after your last st and leave a tail 8x long of the length of the last row. With this tail you will attach your wood ring.
How to attach a wooden ring
With your yarn needle you will sew the ring together. Align your wooden ring with your last row and insert your yarn needle to the first stitch around the ring from the back of the project to the front. Insert your yarn needle through one stitch twice. When you are at the end, secure it and weave in the end.
Don’t forget to weave in the other tails of your project.
