Easy Peasy One Skein Hat
Easy Peasy One Skein Hat
This image courtesy of charmedbyewe.com

With just one skein of yarn, you can work up this Easy Peasy One Skein Hat in no time! With any standard worsted weight yarn, work in the round to create this simple, classic crochet hat. Use half double stitches throughout to create a dense, thick construction to keep your head warm and the cold out. This pattern is just for a solid color hat, but if you have experience with changing colors, you can easily use as many colors as you want. Multiple sizes are provided, so make one for every member of your family!

Notes:
•The pattern instructions are written so the seam of the hat runs straight (read more about it here)
•The hat can be started with a Magic Ring or with the instructions given in Round 1
•The starting chain 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

Okay, this is looking to me like a stash buster hat that could be made in stripes, or sections, or with a big band across the middle. Crochet a flower and add it to the side, or use a brooch or big button or two on it. I love that the directions include all different sizes - takes the guesswork out of sizing the hat!

any chance you have a video tutorial somewhere? i am new to chocheting and find it easier to visualize the pattern

OMG, I love this hat. The pattern is so easy to follow. I will be making several of these hats for my charity shipments. It will help me use up my scrap yarns.

Love that this comes in a good selection of sizes - will definitely be making several of these for family. I'm planning some simple embellishments to pretty it up too.

This is the kind of simple hat that I want to make in a bunch of different colors. Love its classic look!
