Cookie Monster Hat Crochet Pattern

It’s Fall and it’s Hat Season! And more importantly this month, it’s costume season! It’s one of my favorite times of the year and I thought it’d be the perfect time to show you guys how to create a Cookie Monster Hat – crochet style!

Cookie Monster Hat Crochet Pattern

I’ve had this Cookie Monster Hat crochet pattern in my wheelhouse for a while, but I thought it’d be great to release it as a free crochet pattern so everyone can partake in the fun. I’ve written it up in 5 different sizes from toddler to adult!

So please do transform yourself into a Cookie Monster with this very furry crochet hat, but beware, you may, all of a sudden, get an insatiable craving for cookies!

Cookie Monster Hat

I designed this crochet pattern by wanting to mimic the furry texture of the muppet so I knew the perfect yarn to use was eyelash yarn.

Crochet Cookie Monster Hat

When working up this crochet Cookie Monster hat, you will need to use 1 strand of acrylic worsted weight yarn, and 1 strand of the eyelash yarn. You combine them together and work the 2 strands as if they are 1.

As you work your hat, you may find that one side of the hat tends to get more furrier than the other side. So you’ll want the furriest side to be the outside of the hat.

ASSEMBLY
1. Weave and hide ends.
2. Stuff Eyeballs.
3. Sew Eyeballs onto Hat Base. I like to place the hat on a mannequin head and then play around with placement. Generally I like to sew about 7-8 Rounds from the bottom of the brim.
4. Sew Pupils onto Eyeballs. Sew towards center as if cross-eyed, and one eye should be sewn higher up and the other one sewn lower down. You do not want them to be symmetrical as you are going for the silly googly-eyed Cookier Monster look!
5. Hide and cut all ends.
6. Plop on the hat and eat a lot of Cookies!
