I enjoy making hats with texture so I really love this stitch. This hat is so versatile! You can use one or more colors. You can add a flower, button, or ribbon/bow. By leaving off the edging and only doing a single crochet edge, you can make it suitable for boys as well. This will be a great hat for warmer weather.
