Free Robot Crochet Hat Pattern (All Sizes!)

[2]

Hi guys!  I’m Katy and I am the blogger behind Wild & Wanderful [3].  If you follow me on Instagram [4], it wouldn’t come as a shock to you that I’m here to share a crochet pattern with you.  (Because it’s possible that I’ve been a crocheting fool this winter!)  Crocheted hats are what started me in the wild world of handmade-to-sell all those years ago and they still hold a pretty big place in my heart.  Plus, what better way to keep your hands busy during these colder months?

I have a 6-year old son who likes to live out loud and often requests special Momma-made items.  He brought a robot book home from his school library recently and this hat was born from his love of reading about our binary friends.  It’s your lucky day, because I decided to write up the pattern for sizes newborn – adult.  So now you can join us in our robo-love and make one for yourself!  Let’s get started.

PomPom

My favorite way to make pompoms quickly is by using my hand!  4 fingers is a great width to use for a decent sized pom.

[7]

1.) Wind the yarn around and around (and around!) your fingers.  The more you wrap, the fuller the pompom’s poof will be.

2.) Once you’ve reached that desired poof, carefully slide the yarn off your hand.  Take a piece of yarn and tie it directly in the center.  Make the knot is as tight as you can get it.  I often secure the knot, and then switch my strands to the other side, and create a second tight not…just for safe measure.

3.) Take your scissors and cut through the loops on each side of the knot.

4.) Fluff your new yarn ball…cutting the ends to make them more even if necessary.

And you’re done!


I am a big fan of attaching the eye and mouth pieces using Fabri-Tac glue.  It’s quick to dry, works fast, and holds really well.  You just have to be careful when applying it because it will stay wherever it falls.  You can also sew the pieces on with a tapestry needle and matching yarn…it just takes longer and I tend to take the lazy way out.  (Everything else, the ear bolts and the pompom, is attached with the tapestry needle and matching yarn and secured tightly that way.)
