You didn’t think I’d forget the ladies, did you? After sharing my roundup of 7 free crochet patterns for men in celebration of National Hat Day, I took the time to pull together a roundup of some of my favorite free crochet hat patterns for women. I hope you are enjoying National Hat Day in style by wearing your own crochet creations or with hook in hand!

Sea Breeze Summer Slouch by Lorene Haythorn Eppolite at Cre8tion Crochet: This beautiful hat is made with a reclaimed silk yarn, and Lorene has designed a matching Sea Breeze Summer Cowl (also free). Though it’s not summer where I am, perhaps it is where you are – or maybe you just want to get an early start on a lovely accessory.
Riptide Slouch Hat by Candy from Meladora’s Creations: Candy includes a written pattern along with right-handed and left-handed video tutorials, and progress photos to help you crochet this comfy slouchy.
Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie by Elena Hunt at Beatrice Ryan Designs: This hat pattern includes instructions for both solid and striped versions. Elena wrote this pattern as part of a series raising awareness of breast cancer in memory of her friend. She invites you to make an extra hat to donate to anyone suffering from or recovering from cancer.
Mystic Beanie by Kathy Lashley at ELK Studio: Kathy shares the pattern for a solid version of this hat, along with notes for changing it to a striped version. She also has several pictures showing variations that will really get your creative energy flowing.
Curtis Visor by Clare Sullivan at BobWilson123: This is super femme version of a visor would be great for an active lady. In addition to the video tutorial, you can also download a print version of the pattern here.
Slouchy Beanie by Kristin Omdahl on Styled by Kristin: This beanie is a one-skein project made with a sport weight yarn. Kristin includes an all crochet option as well as a variation with a knit brim in the pattern.
Miss Nancy Not Knit Hat by Debi Dearest on Dearest Debi: This mock knit hat can be made as a slouchy (or shorter, to keep it a one-skein project) using bulky yarn. Debi links to a video tutorial for a special stitch technique.
And last, but definitely not least, is the Chevrons and Stripes Slouchy Hat by me. (Add it to your Ravelry favorites or queue here.) This is another great stashbuster. The sample is in three colors, but you can use more or less depending on the scraps you have on hand. The clusters form chevrons, which is my favorite part of the design.
