Easy Crochet Baby Hat

"I love fast little crochet projects that I can work up in an evening. And this baby hat works up SO quickly - even for beginners. To make this easy crochet baby hat you'll need #3 / light-worsted / DK / 8 ply yarn. I used around 1.2oz.(35g) of yarn, so you can make several hats from one ball of yarn! And if you have any leftover yarn lying around (I'm sure, like me, you have loads!) then this is the perfect project to use up some of that stash. "
