Give a Hoot. Crocheted Hat Free pattern for Kids and Adult

Give A Hoot01

I’ve received several requests to create a boy’s version of Garden Party hat, and pretty excited to offer you my very first pattern for boys.

Make the perfect boy’s gift when you stitch this superb hat! This versatile piece was designed specifically with boys in mind. Available in sizes X-Small/Baby, Small/Toddler, Medium/Child, Large/Woman, and X-Large/Man, the easy pattern consists of dc, FPdc and BPdc stitches, and is worked in the round with lace weight yarn (2 strands held together) or with one strand of DK weight yarn. Edge it in a contrasting color of your choice and add a quirky owl applique to make it truly one-of-a-kind! This FREE pattern is sure to bring a smile to the lucky wearer!

PS. Girls also allowed ;o)

    There is a typo in the Brim section. Should FBdc be FPdc instead?

    Thanks so much for sharing the pattern!

    • Alla says:


      brim is using both: Fbdc and FPdc sts.

      • Rell says:


        What is FBdc? I did complete the hat and loved it. Thanks again.

        • Alla says:

          Rell, please see pattern’s Special Stitches and Notes, p. 3 to find stitches explaining. Thanks.

          • Rell says:

            I did look at that page. And I know the FPdc. I couldn’t find FBdc which is why I said typo. I still didn’t find FB but no worries. Hat is done. Thanks again.

            • Alla says:

              Oh my, looks as I lost my mind ;) I’m so sorry Rell! You are perfectly right – it was a typo. Sure BPdc (not FBdc – hehe, looks as I discovered a new stitch – aka “Facebook dc” :)

              I’ve just updated the pattern.

              (Note to myself: never answer questions before first cup of coffee or after last cup of tea ;)
