Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern

Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern
Allen Williams I wasn’t expecting to crochet any hats today but this one snuck in to my afternoon. We started Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day here in Canada) by visiting Michael’s Crafts Store as it was having a two-day sale. Not wanting to take an MSG-induced nap, I decided to put this green and blue variegated yarn to use. I made the hat as suggested in the pattern (size K hook, worsted weight yarn) but I found the hat a bit too tight for a normal adult head. You can really see the crocheted rib style in this photo (and I love the colors in this variegated yarn): It’s only mid-afternoon so I’m thinking there’s time to make one more hat before dinner (assuming I’m not distracted now by blogging). Back to crocheting for me but I hope everyone is enjoying this public day of recognition for the armed forces, regardless of how you are spending the time. Although a thank-you is not nearly enough for the work you’ve done and continue to do, I hope you know how much it means to me! Related:  HatsCrochet 4
