Chevron Ski Hat

The Chevron Ski Hat, free crochet pattern, makes a very warm stocking cap that totally covers the ears in two layers. It is the chevron stitch that makes it so warm, and the gathered top traps heat.

I live in ski country on a mountain that is 7,800 feet above sea level. Our Winters are darn cold and the extra warm protection is needed. I call this a Ski Hat because it stays in place, over the ears, even during high wind. The extra wide brim, that covers the ears, acts like ear warmers, only there's a hat attached.

This pattern includes instructions for Small, Medium, and Large so you will get a comfortable fit no matter what size you require.

To Change Colors in the Chevron Ski Hat
At the end of the row, cut your first color and leave about a 4 inch end (you'll use this to hide the ends later). Tie on your second color also leaving about a 4 inch end.

People are not gentle with hats. They get pulled on, stuffed in bags, tossed in corners, etc. I knot these ends for security in the color change. When knotted they won't pull apart.

Starting the Cuff for the Chevron Ski Hat

The cuff, of the Chevron Ski Hat, needs to be just a touch larger so it folds over nicely.

Place a stitch marker on the top of the 3rd and 6th chevron. These will be increased by one stitch on either side. This slight increase will make the cuff fold over nicely and stay in place.

Skip to the last stitch, 1 single crochet (sc) in the last stitch.

Change color to your 1st color.

Cuff Rows 8 - 14: Repeat the instruction above for Cuff Rows 2 - 7. DO NOT CUT YOUR END YET, there is special measuring for sewing the Chevron Ski Hat together.

Hiding the Ends for the Chevron Ski Hat - All Sizes

First, measure your last thread 3 - 4 times the length of the side. Then cut it. You will use this length for sewing the Chevron Ski Hat together.

Hiding the ends is just as important as cutting and tieing them with a knot. You want these ends to be securely buried in the work so they are less likely to come out with all the tugging, pulling, and washing. I use the 3 direction rule (see below). I know ... it's tedious work ... but you will be glad you did this.

Make sure you are working on the back side of the Chevron Ski Hat. This is different on main hat and cuff.

Thread your yarn needle with one loose end. Work in the same color as the loose end. Catching the back of the stitches thread your needle through about 3 - 4 stitches.


Going in the opposite direction, one row away, go back down about 3 - 4 stitches.

Going back in the opposite direction, one row away, thread through about 3 - 4 stitches. Pull the yarn tight, snip the end close, stretch the fabric back and the yarn will disappear inside the fabric.

Chevron Ski Hat Sewing - All Sizes

In order for the Chevron Ski Hat to lay flat and comfortable on your head, I highly recommend using the mattress stitch to sew the back seam.

Make sure you start on the outside of the cuff, as it will be when you are wearing it. In other words folded up. You start on this side for strength in the seam.

The mattress stitch picks up one thread (on either side) in one direction, followed by the next thread (on either side) in the opposite direction. Back and forth. Stop every 4 stitches or so and pull the thread tight, while holding the fabric (so the fabric doesn't bunch up).


When you get to the first white stitches (or second color) bring your sewing needle to the other side. Simply push the needle down and through.

Continue with the mattress stitch, on this side, for the rest of the Chevron Ski Hat.

Gathering the top of the Chevron Ski Hat is pretty easy. Make sure you are working on the inside. Pick up the top 3 stitches of each chevron and slowly pull them tight. When the top is gathered, put a few stitches, back and forth, over the gather to secure it. Knot your end thread. Trim and hide this thread (see above).

Chevron Ski Hat Options

1. If you (or the person you're giving this to) is very active, I suggest tacking down the top of each cuff chevron. This will stop the points from separating from the hat or curling down.

2. You can add a pom-pom if you like. I'm not a pom-pom sort of person so I left it off of my hat. Click here to see how to make pom-poms.
