Owl Pattern Knit Hat (Free Pattern)

Owl Pattern Crochet Hat (Free Pattern)

Most people tend to prefer either knitting or crochet over the other, but this often leads to difficulties over wanting to make something that only comes in the opposite form of fibre art that you’re comfortable with. Luckily, however, this owl pattern is available to knitters and crocheters (and of course to those of you who know how to do both).

This hat from Julie Measures would be a perfect gift for someone with a love of owls, birds, nature, or the Harry Potter series, and provides the creator with enough of a challenge to make it interesting with the cable owls, whichever way you decide to go, although the crochet pattern does have a note that doing the cables is a bit trickier than in the knitting pattern.

There’s also a YouTube video for the crochet stitching as it does require a little more effort. It walks through the various stitches, including skipping stitches, working in the front and back of skipped stitches, until the cable owl is complete. You can subscribe to the channel for more help with the various stitches in multiple projects from Julie Measures.

Of course, depending on which pattern you use, you’ll need various sizes of crochet hooks, double-pointed needles, or circular needles, as well as an array of yarn (worsted seems to be a popular choice) and buttons, in addition to scissors and a tapestry needle.

If you want the knitting or crochet pattern for the owl hat, they can be purchased and downloaded on Julie Measures (knitting pattern available here, and crochet pattern available here). Remember to watch her how-to video for the cable stitches on the Julie Measures YouTube channel. We also¬†found a few free patterns as well, including a free knitting pattern for the Give A Hoot Beanie from Blue Betty’s Blog, and a free crochet pattern for the Double Crochet Hat with Cable & Owl Variations from Coudre de Couer.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
