The Making of Spiderman (Crochet Hat)

Collect your Supplies! Bright Red and Soft White are "Red Heart Super Saver" and the Blue and Black are "Impeccable"

 Make a swatch...I don't always, but with hats I have to. Its amazing how much a different a knot can turn out with a different brand of hook, a different brand of yarn and a different set of hands.
 My swatch was 12 stitches wide and four rows measured 4" wide and 2" tall. So to make my 20" wide and 8" deep (toddler size to fit up until they are about 5 years old) I would need it to be 60 stitches wide and 16 rows deep.
So I made a simple beanie. HDCs.
SLIP STITCH into the first stitch of that row and chain twice.
I hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (This is Red Heart Super holds up well to being decorated)
Increase: Means to HDC two times in one stitch

Row 1:In a Magic Circle I crocheted 9 HDC. Then I cinched closed my magic circle. (9)
Row 2:HDC two times in each stitch (18)
Row 3:HDC around, increasing every other stitch (27)
Row 4:HDC around, increasing in every 3rd stitch (36)
Row 5:HDC around, increasing in every 4th stitch (45)
Row 6:HDC around (no increases on this row) (45)
Row 7:HDC around, increasing in every 5th stitch (54)
Row 8:HDC around, increasing in every 6th stitch (63)
Row 9-16:HDC around (63)
Fasten off. It should like the picture above. :) Minus the cute toddler. Unless you happen to have one, too.
 Attach the blue yarn. Single Crochet all around for one row. Fasten off.
 When you are crocheting with a new color...crochet over the tails that have been fastened off. It makes it much neater when you snip ends.
 Make an eye. This is the right one. I wanted it to be 1/5th as wide as the hat but my teenager says its a little too wide. Feel free to make yours a little smaller. But this is how I did it! :D

Single crochets...7 rows.

Chain 21.
Row 1:Single crochet in the second chain from hook and continue across (20), chain 1 and turn
Row 2:SC in the first stitch and the next 17 across (18), chain 1 and turn
Row 3:skip one stitch and SC in the next 16 stitches (16), chain 1 and turn
Row 4:SC in the first stitch and the next 14 stitches (15), chain 1 and turn
Row 5:skip the first stitch and SC in the next 13 stitches (13), chain 1 and turn
Row 6:skip the first stitch and SC in the next 11 stitches (11), chain 1 and turn
Row 7:SC in the first 10 stitches and Fasten off. (10)

Make another one for the other side. I made them the same and just used the flip side of one.

And here is a chart. I like to make them to simplify.

 The eyeliner. I wanted heavy eyeliner without making the already large eyes too much larger. So I Spike Single Crocheted all around. If you havent done this, its VERY simple. Instead of stiching into the row below thew one you are working on like you normally would, you insert your hook two rows down. That makes for a wider stitch without adding much more width and a fun spiking effect. At each of the four corners of the eyes SC three times in the same stitch. Fasten off and leave a looooong tail. This will be what you sew the eyes on with.
 Sew on the eyes using a yarn needle.
 Use a yarn needle to sew on teh webs.
 And here it is!

I love constructive critisizm. So, have asked everyone that has seen the hat what they think. So far only my teenager has noted changes that I should make. The eyes should be smaller. I will be trying again very soon. But, until is how I feel about critisizm.
 Mow the lawn...wash the car...Watch your brother. LOL
Haha...just kidding. No punishment for honesty around here. It was just chore day. He is happily playing videogames right now as I type. No teenagers were harmed in the making of my hat.


  1. Cool hat,thanks for sharing. I also love your post - LOL!

  2. Thanks AV! I had fun making it :D

    1. I kinda thought the same thing, but was going to go with it anyway because it's awesome! Nice that he feels he can be honest with you!

    2. yeah...what a great pattern, I will make the hat as a girl asked me today if I could make one. Thank you.

    3. i just finshed the eyes and i think they are fine ;) i still need to attach them and do the webs. i thinkyou did a faulous job and my son LOVES it!! he cant wait til i finish! i hop eim as talented as you whnit comes to doing the webs..........thanks so much for this free pattern!!

    4. I am so glad he likes it, Jennifer! The webs were a toughy for me.

    5. I've made this hat but in an ear flap style. My last step is the webbing. What is the easiest way to do this? I've tried different ways but it just doesn't look right I don't want there to be a lot of yarn on the inside of the hat.

    6. Wow, i think you did an awesome job! I just wish you did a video of your work so i could copy it b/c i'm slow with written directions, lol. Great job! I love it! :D

You've done really well photographing the hat, but I had a heck of a time with the web. I figured it out, but of course it wasn't nearly as nice as yours. If you have any tips you could add, it would be much appreciated :-) Thanks again!!!

  11. I used your eyes on a spiderman ear flap hat for a 4 yo spiderman freak. I thought the eyes were a little big so I used an F size hook. Can't wait to see his face when he opens it on Christmas! Thanks!

  12. I'm working on one now! i have a 4 year old who loves spider man!! thanks so much for the pattern! i will try to post a pic when its all finished! i only have the web left to do! :)
