Four readers will each win a crocheted hat pattern of her choice from Adrienne Engar’s Etsy shop!

MY REVIEW

I decided several months ago I would crochet/knit hats for all my siblings, in-laws, and nieces and nephews, and I’m using patterns from Adrienne Engar’s Etsy shop for every single gift.

She has so many different kinds of hat patterns and 3 of the 5 I reviewed use Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick yarn which is SO AWESOME. You can whip up one of her hats in about an hour with that yarn and the finished product is so cozy and cute and warm!

Here are my versions of the hats:

1 newsboy hatClassic Newsboy

I made this classic newsboy hat for my 10 month old nephew, so it’s a little small for Gus but so cute, don’t you think? This pattern uses a G hook and Vanna’s choice yarn so it doesn’t whip up quite as fast as the other patterns that use Thick & Quick but it was fast.

This was my first time doing a brim and the instructions are very easy to follow.

4 mohawk crocheted hat patternDiesel Mohawk

I couldn’t get Elliot to sit still with this crocheted mohawk hat on!

This pattern also uses a G hook and I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn (my FAVORITE because it’s so soft). I love the black and green from her listing picture, so we went with those colors too.

The hat pattern is pretty standard and very easy, and the only thing hard about the mohawk part is the eyelash yarn.

Gus is getting this hat for Christmas and he’s going to love it!

2 chunky earflap patternChunky Earflap

This pattern uses Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick yarn which makes the hat work up really fast and gives you a super warm finished product.

The chunky earflap pattern comes with a flower and ties, but this is for my little brother so I left those off. I think I’ll make me one with a big beautiful flower though, it’s so cute!

chunky roly brim crocheted hat patternChunky Roly Brim

Another chunky hat! This one has instructions for a rolled brim and a pom-pom on top, and it’s a great basic hat pattern. The sizing chart is accurate (at least for our heads) and the fit is great.

Because these hats whip up so fast, Elliot and Gus will both be getting one for Christmas!

5 bomber crocheted hat patternBomber

This is my #1 favorite hat pattern from Adrienne Engar’s shop. I love the bomber hat look, it works up fast, and is soo warm with large earflaps and the double thickness in front.

If you haven’t checked out Adrienne Engar on Etsy, DO IT NOW! Spend a few bucks and do all handmade hat gifts for Christmas this year. That’s what I’m doing…

Thanks to Adrienne for sponsoring today’s giveaway!

i like the classic newsboy. I can’t crochet, but my mom does a great job, so I’d send it her way with some yarn and a little “hint hint” note. ;)

I absolutely love Adrienne Engar’s hat patterns! They are absolutely gorgeous! Personally any of the hats are adorable!
I especially love the bomber hat, the anna, the asher & the chunky ear flap..

.I’ve been making hats for my kids for a while now and tons of them now that I’ve got a little girl to make all these adorable hats for! But none of them compare to these! Absolutely adorable!

28 Cat December 8, 2010 at 12:16 pm

honestly, she has TOO many cute patterns to choose just one favorite – so, i’d have to pick the bomber, and the owl earflap, and the silly monster. ALL too cute!

29 isabelle December 10, 2010 at 4:57 am

am I too old for the crocheted mohawk? :) I love the bomber hat!

30 Erica December 10, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Hey! I just found you on one of my late-night googling sessions (lol) for crocheting information. I Love the bear earflap pattern, we called my 3 month old “babybear” until we knew if it was a boy or girl, now it’s just Lillybear :)
