This pattern is available for free.

An easy crochet hat pattern for kids, that is simple and quick enough to make in an evening. It is soft and cosy but lightweight enough for warmer weather. The free crochet pattern is more like a ‘recipe’, that you can adjust to suit any size you like. The instructions are for 3 sizes but the finished piece is stretchy enough to suit lots of little heads! 

The pattern is a perfect way to use up scraps of Worsted Weight yarn in your stash. The hat requires no shaping - simply make a rectangle, then use a length of yarn to gather the piece at one end to close the crown. You will finish with a single crochet border and a fluffy pompom.
