This pattern is available for free.

The Basic Hat is part of my Hats Worked Flat Series of free patterns.

This pattern is crocheted in one piece and is worked back-and-forth in rows.

This hat is crocheted with medium weight 4 yarn and it is fitted to the curve of your head.

I’ve including two length options for you as well. One to the base of the earlobe (you will see it on my daughter Darla in the photos below) and one which is more slouchy (the one Drew is sporting).

There are video tutorials in the post to explain how the stitches are worked and how you assemble your hat - I created them when I crocheted The Bulky Hat. I hope you love this design!

You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern - just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size of your project will also be different.

Have fun with your yarn! Rhondda
