This crochet hat pattern is inspired by our first pet – Elliot. You might be scratching your head and wondering, “How does a crochet beanie pattern come about from a pet? Well, Elliot was our beta fish. He had a beautiful bowl with rocks in the bottom that were different shades of green and blue. This fishbowl hat doesn’t feature a beta fish, but it’s still just as fun.

This crochet hat pattern fits kids 6-12 months old, but other sizes are available. You can find that crochet beanie pattern here.

Crochet Hat Pattern Step-by-step

Goldfish Appliqué
Using an f crochet hook and yellow/gold yarn, ch 7 (photo 1).
Row 1: sc in the second ch from hook. hdc in the next, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next, sc in the next. ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. sl st in the same stitch. (Photo 2)
Row 2: ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. Sl st in the BACK of the first stitch on the opposite side of the fish (photo 3). hdc in the next stitch, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next stitch, sc in the next. ch 1, sl st to the first stitch of the previous row. Cut yarn and leave a long tail for sewing on the hat.

Grass Appliqué (see photo 4): 
Using green yarn and an F crochet hook, ch 7.
sl st in the second ch from the hook. sc in the next 5 stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 10. sl st in the second ch from hook. sc in the next 8 stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 6. sl st in the second ch from hok. sc in the next 4 stitches. Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing on the hat. When you’re finished you should have three “blades of grass” as shown in photo 4 above.

Braids: 
For each side of the hat, cut 9 strands of yarn (I do three strands of 3 different colors) approximately 40 inches long. Fold them in half and pull the “loop” through the hat. Pull the loose ends through the loop to attach the yarn. Separate each color to make three strands. Then braid and knot at the end to secure. Cut yarn to make the ends even.

Crochet Hat Pattern Close Ups

Once you have your hat made and the grass and goldfish finished, you’ll need to sew on your buttons. I suggest placing them on the hat first to see how you’re going to want them arranged. After you’ve sewn on the buttons, use a tapestry needle to sew on the grass and fish. I used a french knot to make the eye on the fish and the bubbles coming up from his mouth. This is a great tutorial on how to make French knots on crocheted or knitted items.
