I love this hat pattern the most – the wool ply and the hook size work really well together to make a hat that sits just right. Once I start experimenting with smaller hooks for bigger hats I’m always slightly miffed that they come out just that little bit different.
This hat is super, super easy. One step up from a granny square, I swear! It’s just instead of squares, you’re working in circles. Simple double crochet stitches. Yay!
You can read my road to crochet dominance here… honestly, I taught myself from stuff I found on the internet. It really is that basic.
Once you nail the first few stitches, you can make anything. I’ve got so many ideas that I have to write them all down because I rarely get the actual time to make things!
Anyhoo, this hat is for about 3-6 month baby heads. Veggie Baby is 8 months old in this pic so as you can see, it’s a bit small for her.

*oh and a word about copyright on this – I’m very grateful to the internet for teaching me and being a fount of sometimes-free knowledge, which helped a great deal. Do what you like with what you make from this pattern, including selling the hats if you’d like. Just don’t sell my pattern, and it would be nice if you linked to me if you use it on your blog. But you don’t have to 🙂
