Crocheted hats are a quick project to make and are great for staying warm when it’s cold outside.
It’s finally that time of year again here in Pennsylvania when I need to pull out some hat patterns to crochet! If you need a new winter hat, then look no further than the Andy Crochet Hat pattern!
Read on down to find this easy crochet hat pattern and get started today!
To make this simple crochet hat I used less than one skein of Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s choice yarn which is a 100% acrylic yarn that is available in a wide variety of colors.
Gauge + Hat Sizing
I am getting many messages about gauge. A guide to gauge can be found here on the blog. If you are experiencing any problems with gauge with the recommended crochet hook size, I would suggest sizing up a crochet hook or two to try to reach the correct gauge.
You could also take a look at our crochet hat size chart guide to make sure you make the perfect sized hat.
And please remember if you are using a different yarn weight, even a different yarn with the suggested weight outcome will vary. This pattern is meant to be a guide. Please be kind in your comments to me.
