This is an easy hat that you can make for boys or girls depending on the colors you use. (It's my favorite boy hat.) The size of the pattern is for a child, and it stretches so they can wear it for awhile. The hat has "ridges" along the hat which are easy to make.
You can change the look of the hat with flowers, buttons, ribbon, etc. if you're making it for a girl.
I have been creating crochet patterns for about 9 years. In the beginning my patterns were pretty scary, but I think all the years of practice (and forcing my kids to wear my creations) has paid off! Hopefully you think so too.
