This hat is so easy to crochet and complements a handmade scarf perfectly! I have always preferred to make, rather than purchase, hats because it allows me to coordinate better with the jackets and sweaters I wear. And they make awesome gifts if you are looking to get ahead on Christmas presents this year!
In this video, I will teach you the step-by-step instructions to crocheting a hat of your very own, showing you just how easy it can be. You only need a few items to get started. Choose a medium-sized yarn (I am using standard Red Heart yarn), any color that you having sitting around or that coordinates with your outdoor attire. You will also need a crocheting hook (5mm). That’s it…you’re ready to get started!
I crochet the hat using the double crochet stitch and will teach you how to taper the ends to allow for closure at the top of the hat. I will also teach you how to make a pom pom for the top and how to adjust hat size if needed to fit your own head. Hope you enjoy!
