This is my favorite crochet hat pattern ever. I made one for my teenage daughter and it is the only hat she wears. Now her younger sister is asking me to make one for her. I love that it is crocheted but has the look of a knit hat. The pattern is easy to follow and the hat is warm and stylish. I may even make one for myself!
