I found this free Crochet Hat pattern online and just had to crochet it. My version of the hat is above, I used Caron Soft baby yarn to make my hat and scarf for a gift item for an adult. I really like how the hat turned out. It is easy to make and I even crocheted a scarf from the rib pattern portion of the hat to match.
A couple of things when reading the pattern. I wasn't sure how to close the hat even though there were directions so I played with it a bit. Once I read the directions a couple of times when I got to that point it all came together better. The instructions are clear I sometimes read ahead too far when crocheting as long as you take this one step by step it should be a breeze. I crocheted my hat in one evening! This hat can turn out a variety of ways depending on the yarn you use but each time it still a great hat!
