Pattern: Cozy Winter Hat

This is a hat pattern I made up myself based on one of the first hats I ever made without a pattern, about 2 years ago when I learned to crochet. It’s super simple and works up really quickly. It’s also very easy to modify to fit specific heads. **New Years 2020 Update! I’ve added…


My co-worker recently had a new baby. I wanted to make her a hat that would last through the winter, but my favorite baby hat pattern was for newborn-sized hats. I also wanted to do something a little more festive since she was born right around the holidays. So I made up this pattern to…
