High Altitude Aviator ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

My son kept asking for me an ‘airplane hat’ so I designed this one and I’m happy to say he loves it! Though, I did persuade him to use these colors, I thought they matched his jacket well… but now he wants different colors. A mother’s job is never done! But I’m glad this aviator is quick to work up, because the baby doesn’t give me much time to work these days and it’s COLD here in Wisconsin! Enjoy this free aviator crochet pattern and keep warm if it’s cold where you’re at!

Repeat Row 2 {1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5} more times. Do not finish off but continue to Edging below.

For sizes 6-12 months and 3-10 years: Ch 1, slst loosely in next {5, 9, 11, 13, 17, 21} sts across brim,

R1: Ch 1, turn so you’ll be working down raw edge of brim, work 2 sc in each row end, work 2 sc in each raw edge of ear flap, sc next FC,

*for tie, continue. For no tie, omit directions that are underlined*

(If you’ve used the main color, sc across top of brim.) Next, finish off and weave in ends.  Lastly, sew 2 buttons evenly on brim.

In addition, sew brim to hat. In pictures above, the first Row was used as the ‘turning row’. Row 2 matched up with the last Round of the hat.

**Do not leave children unattended as buttons may be a choking hazard.
