Are you a super fan of the TV show Riverdale?
I totally am!
My favourite character is Jughead of course! So let’s make his crown beanie shall we?
Hi beanie on the show is actually knitted. But I can’t knit… so …. crochet it is!
Skill level for Jughead’s hat:
Easy. Simple crochet stitches.
Supplies Needed for Jughead’s Hat:
– A pattern for your favourite hat (beanie)
– Crochet Hook. I used size J because that’s what I used for the hat. You can use whichever size you used to make the hat.
– Worsted Weight yarn in grey (I used Bernat Premium in Medium Grey Heather)
– yarn needle for weaving in ends
– Scrap felt in white and red for the details on the hat
– needle and thread to sew on details or hot glue to attach them
To start: Crochet your hat using your favourite pattern
To Make Crown:
– Chain 6
Single Crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each ch to the end (5)
ch 1 and turn. Sc 5 to the end of the row.
ch 2, turn. sc in 2nd ch from the hook and each stitch to the end (6)
Turn, ch 1 and sc 6
ch 2, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each stitch to end (7)
ch1, turn, sc 7
ch 2, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each stitch to the end (8)
ch 1, turn, sc 8
ch 2, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each stitch to the end (9)
ch 1, turn, sc 8 leaving the last stitch unworked.
ch 1, turn, sc 8 to end of row
ch 1, turn, sc 7, leaving last stitch unworked
ch 1, turn, sc to the end of the row (7)
Continue until you get to 5 sc:
ch 1, turn, sc 6 leaving last stitch unworked. Ch 1, turn, 6 sc to end of row. Ch 1, turn, sc 5 leaving last stitch unworked, ch 1, turn, sc 5 to the end of the row.
I did a couple of rows of sc 5 to space the crown points out a bit. You can decide if you want them closer together or not.
Continue working up and down the points of the crown until your piece can fit all the way around the brim of your hat.
Make sure to end at the bottom of a 5 sc row
Crochet the 2 short ends of the crown piece together.
ch 1, sc evenly up to the top point of crown to clean up the jagged edges.
sc into the top stitch, ch 1 and then sc again into the same top stitch to form a little point.
sc evenly back down the point. Keep going in this manner until you’ve cleaned up the entire top.
Starting at the back seam, crochet or sew your crown to the edge of the hat.
Cut a tiny rectangle and a red circle from felt and sew or glue them in place on the crown
This pattern is free to use. Please don’t copy and sell it as your own pattern (I’m not a crochet expert and this pattern hasn’t been tested so it’s not really worthy enough for a paid pattern). You may sell the finished hat if you’d like. I’d appreciate a mention as the pattern designer, but it’s not necessary. Jughead is probably a trademarked character, so sell finished products at your own risk.
I’d love to see your Jughead creations! Why not post them in below or if you’ve come here from Ravelry, I’d love to see them posted on there too.
