You can't put that on a steak and eat it!

I'm a beginner at crocheting and I'm kind of bored of the simple scarves I've been doing.  I decided I want to do something a little more difficult and try out a beenie style hat.  I've never done rounds or anything other than very basic stitches, so I'm looking for something pretty easy to help me learn.  It'd also be nice if it was fast.  I'm really into instant gratification crafting.  I want something I could finish in an afternoon if possible.  If I like the way it turns out I might make a bunch for my friends for Christmas.  So...any free online patterns you think I could do?  I'd also like any other easy patterns, even if they aren't hats.  Thanks!  Grin

this is my favorite to make (its PDF format). Its really easy just double crochets...I usually add another row at the top to make it fit my big head. The good thing about it is it stretches both ways so if you make it a little too big its ok.

And here is a great site for beginners to learn how to do different techniques. And if you look around there are bunches & bunches of patterns on there too.

Tehe.  Cheesy  Hooking.  It makes me giggle every time.

Thank you so much.  That hat is exactly what I'm looking for.  I think it will look pretty cool with the yarn I have.

Well, I just started!  It's been very easy so far.  The yarn I was planning on using was kind of fuzzy and hard to work with, so now I'm just using black.
