Picture of Crochet Scalloped Edge Hat (From the Basics)


This project is about how to make a crochet hat with scalloped edges. This is a perfect hat for the summer. The worlds of crochet is so vast. There are so many of ideas and techniques. Crochet work are so beautiful to see and it brings back those days when granny's did lots of crocheting.

I have created a crochet hat with scalloped edges for a doll. The same technique can be extended to a baby hat or even an adult Hat.

I have started from the basics so that it would be easy for the beginners to start crocheting right away.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Anchor Mercer #40 cotton thread - White and Pink

(Each one is 20 gram)



Crochet Hook - 3.5-4.5 mm will be suitable

Step 2: Slip knot

To begin with crochet we start with the slip knot.

Wind the yarn around your fingers.

Pick up the thread with the crochet hook through the loop you just made.

Pull the threads so that the knot is pulled up to the hook.

The knot should not be very tight or you will not be able to work in ease with the hook.

Step 3: Chain Stitch (part 1)

Now after doing the knot we have do the chain stitch. Here I have done about 12 chain stitch.

Now this is how to do a chain stitch. Here we go.

The crochet hook is now in the slip knot.

Firstly, with the crochet hook pick up the thread as shown in the photo.

Now pull the thread through the slip knot.

Step 4: Chain Stitch (part 2)

The first photo in this step show the result after 1 chain stitch.

Continue doing the same for 12 -15 times.

Pick up the thread and pull it through the loop.


For making a bigger hat you can either use a thicker thread or increase the number of chain stitch.

The length of the chain stitch will decide the upper portion of the hat.
