Practice your half-double crochet stitches with this super easy ribbed hat! It features a tapered top that reduces bunching, making it perfect with or without a pom. This hat is perfect for beginners and is worked in half double crochets and slip stitches. The pattern features 10 different sizes from preemie to adult large and includes instructions for how to make it slouchy or brimless.

The pattern features a photo and video tutorial. It’s available for free on my blog:
