The Mountainside Hat is the first pattern from the Mountainside Collection. Designs in the collection include a hat, cowl, wrist warmers (fingerless gloves), and a cup cozy.

The Mountainside Hat can be made as a traditional hat or a messy bun style.

The Yarn

The yarn I used is Lion Brand’s Hometown Bonus Bundle in the colorways Aspen Tweed (white tweed) and Salem Creek (pink and charcoal). Any super bulky weight yarn will work; Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, Loops & Threads Cozy Wool, and Loops & Threads Lush Alpaca are great options.

Supplies Needed

For the hat you will need:

– Approximately 100 yards of #6 weight yarn
– M/9.00 mm crochet hook
– Yarn needle
– Scissors
– Measuring tape
– Pompom (optional)
– Elastic hair tie (for messy bun style)

Stitches Used

Ch – Chain
Cl(s) – Cluster(s)
Dc – Double Crochet
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Mc – Magic Circle
Sc – Single Crochet
Sl St – Slip Stitch
St(s) – Stich(es)
YO – Yarn Over

Gauge and Final Measurements

Gauge: 5 Cl x 5 rows = 4″ square

Final Measurements: 8″ tall x 11″ wide

Stitch Definition

Cl(s) – Cluster(s):
[The Cl is comprised of a Dc and Hdc together.]

YO, insert hook into next St, YO and pull up a loop, YO, pull through first 2 loops on hook, YO, insert hook into SAME St, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through all 4 loops on hook. Cluster Completed.

Pattern Notes

When doing the Ch 1, pull up the loop a little higher than you normally would. This helps to not have the first cluster tight and have the seam noticeable.

  1. Good morning, I have not been able to use the coupon code on any patterns since day 3 or 4. I am putting it in properly as I am copying and pasting the code given. It’s getting rather frustrating. Please advise. Thank you.

    1. Sorry for any inconvenience. The only thing that I can think of is that due to time zones the code may have already expired.
