Please note that the Lion Brand Yarn Company will be performing inventory from Tuesday, June 2nd through to Friday, June 5th. Regular shipping will resume Sunday, June 7th. We ask for your patience regarding the shipment of orders during this time. Thank you for your understanding!

Lion Brand® Keppi
Pattern #: L32138B

Whether crocheted or knit, the hat will vary in finished length according to your tension. Therefore the pattern states to work even until almost all the yarn is used.  The largest size will be shorter in length than the smallest size because more stitches have been cast on or chained in the beginning. To make a longer hat or a slouch hat, we suggest purchasing an additional ball.

Sparkle Crochet Hat

Lion Brand® Keppi


14 1/2 half double crochet = 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Leaving a long beg tail, very loosely ch 51 (59, 63, 67, 69).
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across - 50 (58, 62, 66, 68) sts.
Note: Place marker in last st, you will now be working in rnds, this will be the beg of rnd marker. Move the marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 1: Being careful not to twist sts, sc in first st of Row 1 and each st around.
Rnds 2 and 3: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 4: Hdc in each st around.
Repeat Rnd 4 until almost all yarn has been used.
Top of Hat
Decrease Rnd:
([Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook) around - 25 (29, 31, 33, 34) sts. Remove marker and fasten off. Thread ending tail through last rnd, pull tight and knot securely.

Thread both of the yarn strands of pompom into yarn needle and weave to inside of the top of Hat, then through pompom - this stitch stabilizes the pompom. Draw strands back through to wrong side of Hat and knot securely.
Use beg yarn tail to sew ends of Row 1 together. Weave in ends.

Sparkle Crochet Hat Reviewed by Rebecca Diak on 2015-01-05 *
I found the number of chains were completely off. Too long and needed to make less to accommodate the size. I agree that the frilly yarn is not good for the border. Need to use regular yarn.
