This quick, chunky hat is made using a size L hook and heavy single crochet, which is a variation on basic single crochet that adds extra chain stitches to the fabric. Those extra chains make the fabric thicker and also “lock” the single crochets in place, like with cluster stitches, preventing the single crochets from stretching out of shape. Worked in a coil, heavy single crochet makes an attractive and practical hat. When turned “wrong side” out, it also has a significantly less prominent horizontal line to it than single crochet.

This pattern includes instructions for four sizes, ranging from infant to adult.
