The Yarn

I used a light #3 acrylic yarn called Red Heart Comfort Sport. Unfortunately, the yarn has been discontinued, but other similar yarns can be used instead. Check out YarnSub for a list of possible substitutes.

The Stitch Pattern

Single crochet and half double crochet stitches cross stitches are all the stitches you need to make this quick and easy crochet hat and cowl set.

The rounds of cross stitches are separated with rows of single crochets to give you a pretty look on the fabric.

The hat is started at the brim, and worked in rows with a crochet ribbing until you reach the desired size for the circumference. Then you begin working in rounds until you reach the height that you want. Lastly, two rounds of decreasing by working two single crochet stitches as one over two stitches from the previous round.

Add a pom pom or leave it as is.
