(I was going to submit this pattern to Crochetme, but it looks as though they aren't taking submissions anymore, so, you guys get a sweet tutorial)
I make these hats when I need to whip something out quickly, you can make one in less than an hour. They are perfect for the snowboarder, or the person with the cold head in your life.

Yarn: Lionbrand Wool Ease Thick and Quick
Hook Size: US Size M

Round 1: Chain 2, make 6 Half Double Crochets (HDCs) into first chain, joing into the first HDC to Join.

NOTE: To Join, slip stitch into the first HCD of round, then chain 1

Round 2: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, and 2 HDC in each stitch around. Join.

Round 3: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next, *2 in next st, 1 in next st* around, join.

Round 4: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next 2, *2 in next st, 1 in next 2 sts* around, join.

Round 5: 2 HDC in the stitch you joined the last round to, 1 in next 3, *2 in next st, 1 in next 3 sts*

After these rounds, you should have a circle that looks something like this:

HDC 7 more rounds.

Now, work a round of slip stitches in each stitch around (but do it VERY loosely, or your hat will be too tight to put on). I just did that because it gives a nice border to the bottom of your hat.

Slip stitch into first stitch of round. Fasten off, weave in ends.

I wanna swap! I can knit and crochet pretty much anything (hats, wristwarmers, scarves, Check my blog to see).

Thanks for sharing your pattern and the helpful pics! I just whipped up something in HDC today, and now I feel like I can tackle this. And, I love how it uses my favorite size hook and thick yarn so I can finish it before I get distracted by something else.

I have plans to make a series of "science-themed" hats to wear at bus duty next year (gets pretty cold out there!), and this hat looks like the perfect "foundation" for me to build upon.  Cheesy

Thanks again for sharing!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
