Hats, glorious hats. We really love hats. They keep your head warm. They make you look cute. And they’re super fun and easy to make.
We’ve got shell patterned hats. We’ve got camo hats. We’ve got fun, slouchy beanies. Any type of beanie that you would want, we’ve got it for you to choose from. We even have a BB-8 hat.
There’s no way the teen or kid in your life won’t love the hat you pick out for them. It’s even more special when you’ve made it yourself.
You’ll probably want to make one of these hats for yourself, too. You can match with whoever you’re making the hat for. Get ready to get your head in the game.
Simple Double Brim Hat
The simple double brim hat is – as it says – very simple: it’s entirely made of single crochet stitches which makes it a great project for beginners as well. The pattern works up quite fast because the hat is made with a big crochet hook. The hat keeps your ears double warm and looks great when using another color on the inside.

This hat is so named for its color and the lines that go around it. If you are into watching house remodeling shows – you’d understand!
Greene Pom Pom Hat
You’ll love the texture of this hat. Before you attach the pom pom, you can choose which side of the hat you want to use (it is completely reversible at this stage). Here three colors were used to achieve a color block look but this hat would be really beautiful in a solid color as well.

Super Quick Fair Isle Beanie
Fair isle crochet involves creating colored designs and shapes in the background of your project. It’s a very savvy crochet technique to learn because you work behind the background to create the shapes vs casting on and off. The motifs incorporated into the background are simple yet unique.

Faux Mistake Rib Watchman’s Cap
Here’s how to crochet a hat that both looks like a mistake rib watchman’s cap AND has the stretch of one. The solution was to crochet the hat in rows from the brim to the crown, combining stitches of different heights and working in the back loop.
Shell V Shell Crochet Slouch
This Shell V Shell Crochet Slouch is a very easy pattern to follow and the name of this slouch explains everything. The combination of shell and v stitch makes the body of the hat and give it a great openwork texture.

Do you love crocheting bobbles? The texture it gives to hats, blankets, and just about anything else is fun and adds great visual interest.
