Meet your new favorite hat. Seriously, this yarn-obsessed-busy-lady LIVES in this hat. Wake up with awful bedhead hair? Need something to calm frizzy flyaways? Looking for a casual yet sleek hat to up your hipster game? LOOK NO FURTHER. This hat can do it all.

This is the listing for a braided edging on the band of the hat, using a silkier and slightly thinner medium-weight yarn.

Four sizes are included in the pattern:
• SMALL: 21.5-22” head circumference = 11” height
• MEDIUM: 22.5-23” head circumference = 11.5” height
• LARGE: 23.5-24” head circumference = 12.5” height
• EXTRA LARGE: 24.5-25.5” head circumference = 14” height

This is an easy to intermediate crochet pattern, and you will need to be familiar with (or become familiar with) the following stitches:
• single crochet
• half double crochet
• double crochet
• crocheting in back loops and both loops

You can decide to have one color yarn for your hat, or incorporate many! Directions are given for all four sizes to have a six-colored ombré design, or a one-color solid look.
