Crochet this hat pattern with every color of the rainbow for an instant pick-me-up this holiday season. This brightly colored winter crochet hat uses six different shades of yarn, so there are a few simply color changes involved. Otherwise, this pattern uses very simple stitches and is worked in the round, making it fast and easy to make. Sizes are included for sizes preemie through adult, and the color combination can always be switched up as needed, so you can stick with the rainbow pattern or go with a different option as a gift for someone else. 

Note:
•Starting chain of each round does NOT count as a stitch
•Each round is started in the same stitch as your starting chain
•The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first stitch of the round, not the starting chain
•Back Post Increase: For a less bulky increase, work a regular HDC into the base of the BPhdc (the strand that goes around the post of the stitch below)
•Change color on every Back Post round; carry the yarn inside the hat or fasten off, whichever you prefer
