Ice Queen Crochet Hat Pattern

Ice Queen crochet hat
Since movie Frozen and queen Elsa are very popular in my house, my neighbourhood and my country, here is my version of the Frozen Elsa inspired crochet hat. Almost every little girl that I happen to know likes the pretty Ice Queen with her long white braid and her magical ice powers...

*Hat shown in picture is a 3-6 Years size on a 6 year old model.*

Updated February 2015: I added two more sizes to this pattern: 7-10 Years old, and 11 Years old - Adult. Enjoy!




Yarn used: Caron Simply Soft Acrylic yarn in colours “Blue Mint” and “White”. Any worsted weight yarn would work.
Hook used: 5 mm (H)

Abbreviations:
CH – chain
ST – stitch
SC – single crochet
Sl ST – slip stitch
Cl ST – cluster stitch
YO – yarn over

In this short video I show and explain how to crochet a Cluster Stitch. (Written explanation following).
To work Cluster Stitch – YO, insert hook in next ST, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO, insert hook in same stitch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
Pattern: 

Updated Oct. 13, 2016: I have created a short video showing how to start the hat and make the first round:

Size 0-6 Months
Use hook H
Round 1: With aqua colour CH 4 (if you can start with a magic loop use that rather than CH4). Cl ST 11 times in 4th CH from hook. Sl St in top of CH4 to complete round. (11)
Round 2: CH 3. Cl ST 2 times in each ST around. Join with Sl St at top of CH 3. (22)
Round 3: CH 3. *Cl ST 2 times in next ST, Cl ST 1 time in next ST*. Repeat from * to *. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (33)
Round 4-6: CH 3. Cl ST around. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (33)
Round 7: Place marker. For the ribbing work *two SC in first stitch, one SC in next stitch*, repeat around (50), do not join, continue working in spiral.
Round 8-10: SC in each stitch around in back loops. Crocheting in back loops gives your ribbing a nice ribbed look.

Elsa hat pattern
 
For the snowflake appliqué I used this great free pattern by Attic 24.
I left a long tail and sewed the snowflake to one side of the hat. 

 
To attach the hair cut about 30-40 strands of yarn that are about 2 yards long. I suggest wrapping yarn around some piece of furniture (I used a chair).
Secure strands (two or three at a time) by looping them around the bottom single crochet edges where you want your braid to be – I suggest using the same side where you sewed the snowflake appliqué. Then add more strands above the bottom edge strands.


Braid yarn, tie bottom of pony tail with another strand of yarn – I used an aqua piece of yarn.



 Enjoy!
