Basic Blythe Earflap Hat - Free Crochet Pattern!

Dear Jill,

I am loving the new Blythe releases! And the descriptions are hilarious!

Today I thought I'd share with you my Basic Earflap Hat pattern! In the pics below I have jazzed it up with a badge and a button, but you can do what you like with it. I don't even mind if you sell them on, as long as you don't pass the pattern on as your own work :)

I hope you enjoy!

Basic Blythe Earflap Hat

Basic Blythe Earflap Hat - Free Crochet Pattern!
You Will Need:

. DK yarn (2 colours)
. 4.5mm hook
. Approx. 1m of lace
. Button Badge
. Buttons
. Yarn needle


· St/Sts – Stitch/Stitches
· Ch - Chain Stitch
· Sc - Single Crochet
· Slst - Slip Stitch
· Inc (Increase) - 2 Sc into 1 St
· ** - Marks a group of stitches to be repeated until the round is completed


No gauge, just keep your stitches nice and tight to avoid gaps in your work. Also try the hat on your doll as you are making the hat to see if it is fitting

Finished Size

Made to fit all Blythes and Blythe Clones

Other Info

· Work in continuous rounds; in a spiral, unless otherwise stated. Don’t join at the end of a row; just keep going
· Use stitch markers or a piece of scrap yarn to mark the start of every round. Replace at the start of the next round as you go along. This will help you keep track of where you started, and saves a lot of time if things go wrong!
· I write my patterns in American terms, so Sc means Single Crochet; Dc means Double Crochet etc
. The number at the end of each round is the number of stitches you should now have
. Using a thicker yarn than DK/bigger hook than 4.5mm will result in the hat being a considerably different size to that shown.
