It’s a super quick Hat to make and is part of my Spiral Series which also has cute matching fingerless mitts and a Cowl in 2 styles, long for double wrapping or short. All feature the same fabulously eye-catching spiral shell design that’s very simple. It really is, I promise. They make great gifts, both individually and as a matching set.
What do you think of the fluffy pompom? It’s crocheted! Can you believe it? You can find it free on my blog:
Back to the snuggly Spiral Hat…
Already got the pattern? Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
4.5mm and 5mm Hooks (or to suit tension, gauge is provided in the pattern).
Aran/Worsted weight yarn (approx. 75g -100g) see next paragraph for suggestions
Scissors, sharp small embroidery type is ideal, aren’t these just beautiful.
If you need crochet hooks I highly recommend the ergonomic hooks by Knit Pro Waves, they’re really comfortable to use and it’s so easy to find the size you need quickly because of the different colours on the handles! They do a lovely set too, complete with case in Pink or Green if you’re thinking of a gift or to update your crochet hook collection.
For your yarn I know we all have our favs and it’s ok to use whatever aran weight yarn you like. I highly recommend Women’s Institute Soft & Smooth aran at Hobbycraft (not affiliated). It’s beautifully soft and non-pilling which means your mitts stay looking new for much longer than they would if made with standard yarn. I love this because it means so much more wear and therefore less waste in the long term. A wonderful alternative and popular choice that is also non-pilling is Universal Yarns Uptown Worsted.

The hat and mitts duo were published in the September 2019 (#66) edition of Happily Hooked Magazine and the Cowl (short version only) was in the October (#67) edition. All were very popular patterns and voted as the CAL of the month. If you are interested in a magazine subscription, Happily Hooked is a wonderful magazine with a support group on Facebook that’s absolutely incredible.
All three patterns are Intermediate level but many beginners have made them too. I am always here to help if you have any problems at all.
