Everyone needs to have a good, quick, easy hat in their crochet pattern arsenal. This is that pattern.

All stitches have their place, of course, but if you are just looking to bust out a hat in an hour-ish, you really can’t go wrong here.

If you’d like to brush up on your double crochet, a tutorial is but a click away: Double Crochet Video Tutorial
