Crochet a Simple Hat

Let’s make a simple basic crochet hat together. It’s super easy my friends. I know you’ve seen many awesome crochet hats in your internets searchings, but you have to start somewhere. I’ll give you the basics to get you started on your hat making journey. We will be using a double crochet. Let’s do it!

FINISH OFF sew in loose ends

Through my 15+ years of crocheting, I have made it my goal to show the world we are more than just doily and blanket makers. And as a curious DIY crafter, I’m always getting into other projects away from the hook and yarn too.
