(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Z-Cap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • 2 DC-TOG
  • Single Crochet - SC
  • Double Crochet - DC

Pattern Description:

Not quite a slouch hat, not quite a newsboy hat; I present to you the Z-Cap! Use it to
hold a little hair, wear it slouchy, it's up to you.
This hat pattern is very versatile, and suitable for both beginners and intermediate
crocheters. I've included both the US and UK stitch versions.
The original design makes a lightweight cap. I've found that substituting the aran
weight for two strands of dk weight makes it more ideal for colder weather. Go down
a hook size if you need to cinch the rim in a bit more.


6 dc's and 3 rows = 2 inches.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Teen/Adult 21-22 inch circumference. 10 inches from top of hat to rim edge.
  • Adult Medium/Regular 22-23 inch circumference. 10 inches from top of hat to rim edge.


  • H hook (5mm) - for Teen/Adult
  • I hook (5.50mm) - for Adult Medium/Regular
  • About 137 metres/150 yds Aran weight yarn - OR About 274 metres/300 yds of DK weight yarn. ( Hold two strands together)

You Will Also Need:

  • Yarn needle to weave in ends.
