Crochet Modern Gingerbread Hat Free Pattern

Crochet Modern Gingerbread Hat Pattern by Crochet For You.

Here is my version of the gingerbread hat. Rather than making a traditional hat design with the face of gingerbread I made this as a unisex hat to go with modern style. Add white stripes, bow and pompom. This hat is unisex and can be made in any size. 😀

The gingerbread hat made in toddler size. Follow the hat sizing guide-How to Crochet Hat in Any Size to make this hat in any size. Find more info in the note section and the pattern section too.

You can be more creative when adding embellishment to the hat. If you want to make this hat for a girl add a red bow between white rows. And pompom gives a winter and cozy look to the hat. With and without pompom and red bow, I styled this hat in 4 ways (scroll down to the bottom of the pattern see all 4 styles)

Finishing
Pinch at the middle of the bow and start wrapping the remaining yarn tail around the middle of the bow tightly. When finish the wrapping insert the tapestry needle through the yarn and sew a few stitches to secure the yarn end.
