If you’re new to the Crochet Cancer Challenge, it’s the fifth annual month-long virtual event hosted by Sweet Potato 3. Every October, Christine works with crochet designers who offer up one of their premium (paid) crochet patterns for free for a short time in exchange for a pledge from the crocheter who uses the coupon code. By using the coupon code, you are pledging to crochet a hat to donate to a cancer center or to a cancer patient that you know. Since most of my patterns are available for free, I am doing something special for this challenge. I pulled together an ebook collection of 6 of my pom pom hat designs that would be appropriate for donating, and I’m offering the entire ebook for free for a limited time!

2018 Crochet Cancer Challenge with Sweet Potato 3Before I give you the coupon code, let me tell you a bit more about my new pattern, the Auntie Em Twister Hat, which is the final pattern in this collection.

Free crochet pattern: Auntie Em Twister Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn in 6 sizes by Underground CrafterIf you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that the half double crochet is my absolute favorite stitch. It’s so versatile! I wanted to design a pattern that alternates between the front and third (back) loop of the half double crochet to create texture, and I worked up some swatches. They were nice… but not enough OOMPH for my pattern for the Cancer Challenge! So, I decided not to join the pattern as I worked it in the round.

Free crochet pattern: Auntie Em Twister Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn in 6 sizes by Underground CrafterNot only does that mean that the finished hat doesn’t have a back seam (which makes it more comfy for a person experiencing hair loss), but it also gives the finished project a little twist.

Free crochet pattern: Auntie Em Twister Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn in 6 sizes by Underground CrafterAs a kid, my mom would always “make” me watch The Wizard of Oz when it was shown on television about once a year. I was pretty bratty about not wanting to watch “some old movie” but over time, it grew on me. I remember how happy Dorothy was to be back home (after all, there’s no place like it!) with Auntie Em and Uncle Henry. And, of course, the “twister” is why Dorothy was away from home in the first place. Hence the name Auntie Em Twister Hat.

Crochet Pattern: New Dawn Beanie

Profile of woman wearing multi-color crochet hat while looking downwards and standing against brick wall in a silver coat. | Free crochet pattern: New Dawn Beanie in Sprightly Spectrum Worsted yarn by Underground CrafterIt’s that time of year when I’m hoping desperately for spring. I designed the New Dawn Beanie for everyone out there who feels the same way! This fitted beanie is made with simple, textured stitches. A self-striping yarn in spring colors does all the colorwork for you. You can choose to add the optional mayapple flower motif for some extra spring! Best of all, it’s a one skein project!

I like the winter because I get to crochet and wear my crochet more than the rest of the year. But, it does get old after a while.

That’s why I decided an optional floral applique was in order for this pattern!

Smiling woman wearing multi-color crochet hat, standing against brick wall in a silver coat | Free crochet pattern: New Dawn Beanie in Sprightly Spectrum Worsted yarn by Underground CrafterThe spring colors brighten up my mood, and the self-striping Sprightly Spectrum Worsted yarn (available exclusively from Craftsy) does all the colorwork for me. If you’d prefer a simpler hat, just leave off the applique.

Crochet Pattern: Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat

Profile of woman in lacy crochet hat in chunky yarn | Free crochet pattern: Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn by Underground CrafterThough I tend to crochet unisex hats for my handmade gift closet so I can decide later who to gift them to, once in a while, I make a more feminine crochet hat to keep or to gift to someone special. For this hat, I combined a chunky yarn with one of my favorite, easy lacy stitches to make a feminine beanie topped with a bobble “pom pom.”

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links.Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Craftsy.

A few months ago, I was sent some of Craftsy’s (relatively) new yarn, Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky, to try. I had quite a few project ideas but I kept coming back to the idea of a hat.

Woman in lacy crochet hat in chunky yarn smiling and wearing silver coat | Free crochet pattern: Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn by Underground CrafterI’ve been burned by single skeins of super bulky yarn before. And, by “burned,” I mean that I’ve lost that game of yarn chicken. I had to stop my project at the last row, or pull it back and add stripes, or give up entirely.

Woman in lacy crochet hat in chunky yarn facing down | Free crochet pattern: Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn by Underground CrafterFor this hat, I actually won that game of yarn chicken, but barely. (As in, I didn’t have to “fasten off” because there was no yarn left after the last stitch.) If you’re less daring than I was, may I suggest getting 2 skeins of Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky for your version of the Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat?

Back of woman with silver coat and crochet hat in chunky yarn | Free crochet pattern: Chunky Double V-Stitch Hat in Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky yarn by Underground CrafterThe double v-stitch is one of my favorite, classic crochet combinations, and it combines well with this yarn. I didn’t have enough yarn for a pom pom at the end, so I designed a creative decrease that forms bobbles for the top. It’s much more secure, too, if you have the tendency to lose your pom poms after a few washings.

Crochet Pattern: Mock Bobbles Beret in 3 Sizes

Free crochet pattern: Mock Bobbles Beret in Sprightly Acrylic Worsted yarn by Underground Crafter | This textured beret is made with a combination of tall and short crochet stitches. Available in infant, child, and adult sizes.

The Mock Bobbles Beret updates a classic style with a pop of texture. This pattern uses a combination of tall and short stitches to create the look of bobbles in an easier way. I used a neutral color for my version but you could completely change the look with a vibrant or pastel yarn. Best of all, this hat is available in three sizes — infant, child, and adult — so you can make a matching family set.

Last year, I made the Mock Bobbles Cowl. I had a lot of fun playing with mock bobbles (which, in my variation, are a combination of triple and single crochet) and I knew I wanted to make a hat using the same stitch pattern. But what shape or style of hat? My maternal grandmother used to crochet berets, and as a child, I had one in an off-white color. When I got this sample of Sprightly Acrylic Worsted from Craftsy, all of the ideas came together and I started working on this beret.

Then, you will decrease towards the crown to get a snug fit on your head when wearing it.
