This free tutorial is to help a crochet beginner learn how to start a double crochet hat. It is perfect if you have not worked in rounds before but you have a basic understanding of simple crochet stitches.
This pattern will not teach you how to make a complete hat. It is intended for someone who has a hat pattern that they would like to make but no clue how to start.
This pattern will show you how to start many of my character and earflap hats, it does not apply to the Sun hats or beanies.
I am a stay at home Mom with newborn twins and a 3 year old girl so my life is diapers, glitter and princesses right now. When my first daughter was born, I got back into crochet by making little hats for her. I love coming up with new ideas for cute hats.
