Tapestry Needle
Any 2 worsted weight yarn


Magic Ring
DC- double crochet

Special Stitch: Loop Stitch: here is a tutorial on how to do this stitch:

Note: Use a stitch marker to marker the beginning of each round.
Double Note: Chain at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch.


Using Main Color (A), I Hook, and Magic Ring
Round 1: 6 Dc in the magic ring DO NOT JOIN (Use stitch marker)
Round 2-3: 2 Dc in each stitch around.
Round 4: *1 Dc in first stitch, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 5: *1 Dc in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 6: *1 Dc in each of the next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
Round 7: *1 Dc in each of the next 4 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * around.
You May Continue to Increase Here for a Bigger Hat.
Round 8-18: 1 dc in each stitch around.
Ear Flaps:
Row 19-25: 1 Hdc in each of the next 10 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 26: Hdc2tog, 1 hdc in each of the next 4 stitches. Hdc2tog, 1 hdc in last stitch.
Row 27: 1 Hdc in each stitch across

Finish off and weave in ends.

Row 28: Count out next 20 stitches from the beginning of the ear flap, join and Chain 2. 9 Hdc in each of the next 9 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 29-34: 1 Hdc in each of the next 10 stitches. Chain 2, turn.
Row 35: Same as row 26.
Row 36: Same as row 27.

Finish off and weave in ends.

Mohawk (Loop Stitch):
Depending on the size of the hat, the starting chain may be different. For my hat I did chain 51. What I did is measure from the front to the back of the hat and making a chain accordingly. If you did not increase more during the making of the hat then Chain 51 should work just fine.

Using J hook & Both colors A and B:
Chain 51
Row 1: 1 Loop Stitch in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across. Chain 1, turn.
Row 2: 1 Sc in each stitch across. Chain 1, turn.
Rows 3-6: Repeat rows 1 & 2 twice.

Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Sew on Loop Stitch to the middle of the hat between the ear flaps. Cut the loops.

Braided Tassels:

Take 6 strands of each color, weave into the last row of the each of the ear flaps and braid. Knot at the end.

I understand that this might be a bit confusing so, email me at if you have any questions.

**Thanks Crochet Me for the tutorial on the loop stitch!


  1. This is really cute! My g-nephew had a mohawk this summer, and might like this hat for the winter! Thanks for the pattern!

  2. i love ittt! i have been wanting one of these.... but their $20 :)

  3. I started making this hat and it seems really it supposed to be that way? I am on round 11 or 12.

  4. I have found that if you crochet this too loose, you will have a hat made to fit 2 people's heads. I wanted to make a rainbow mohawk hat and so I am, I screwed up the first time around because it was TOO LOOSE. Make it as tight as you'd feel comfortable with.

  5. i don't really like working in one continuous round. is there anyway to join each round?

    1. if you join your roumds, you will have an ugly crease in the back. use a stitch marker and mark the beginning of each round. that way, you wont have to do any counting.

    2. on second thought. go ahead and join rounds at the last stitch in the previous round with a slip stitch. make sure your first stitch at the beginning of the next round is started in the slip stitch. go ahead and join rounds because once you put the mohawk will cover your crease........happy crocheting.

    3. I did join the rounds. Made this hat a year ago and it turned out fine with joining each round with a slst.

  6. I just finished all but the tassel portion of this hat. How long are the 6 strands supposed to be? Other than that I love it and hope my recipient will too!

  7. I cut the 6 strands for the ties 3 feet each and they came out perfect. What a wonderful project! Thanks so much for sharing!

  8. I was wondering what size this is for?
    Im making it for my 6 year old cousin but is this for an adult?

  9. has a nice collection of mohawk hats. Here's the link.

  10. I'm trying to make this hat and it's coming out huge!! It's too big around and too "tall". I'm using an I-hook, worsted weight yarn, and am following the pattern exactly. Where did I go wrong?

    1. It is probably a gauge issue. Your stitich may be more loose than the creator of the pattern. I think using a smaller hook woud help make the overall results smaller.

  11. where is the picture? i can't see it.
