Camel Stitch Hat Crochet Pattern

The Camel Stitch Hat is such a great design, not only because of the awesome stitch, but also because it comes with 3 brim options! You can make this hat with a ribbed brim, as shown above, a front post brim, or a bonnet style brim with tassels! The camel stitch is also a really fun, textured stitch to use that works up fairly quick! I have a tutorial on how to do the camel stitch HERE

The sample pictured above uses Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice yarn. This is a yarn that I haven’t used much in the past but I really love the tweed yarn options that they have so when I want a good tweed, it is my go-to. This colorway that I used in the photos is called Grey Marble!
