Crocheting in the round is really quite simple.

1. Chain 6 and join with a slip stitch ((I always do 6, but you can vary it a little))
2. Then do two double crochets in each chain, this will give your hat width
3. Keep going around with two double crochets in each stitch, until you have it as wide as you want.  It'll be a big flat circle.
4. Start doing one double crochet per stitch now.  This will give your hat length.
5. Double crochet around and around till your hat is as long as you want it to be.

That's pretty much your basic beanie. 

This is the pattern I used.  It's a pretty good guide:


I didn't do the ear flaps though.  Or the pom pom.

And there's some good YouTube videos out there too.

Crocheting in the round is really easy though

My Favourite hat to wear is crocheted on the flat. I make a chain long enough to stretch from my crown to where I want the hat to sit (remember to add the extra distance if you want a brim) and then I crochet rows until the piece will wrap around my head.I then either sew up the seam or crochet it.
Then gather one end by sewing it and pulling it tight and you are done. I use this pattern all the time as it is an easy one to size for the whole family, and I can try out all kinds of stitch patterns easily.
I have also added earflaps to it at times and other decorations afterwards.
For some reason it is one of the few hats that will stay on my head - most of them shoot off as if my head was buttered Huh

I learned to crochet by watching videos on YouTube!! You can pause and rewind and go as slow as you want. Try searcing The Art of Crochet by Teresa and you will have much luck!!
She taught me everything I know so far!

I love Jesus, My husband and my two girls..and crochet of course!<3

April Draven has a wonderful pattern for a convertable hat super easy and looks very nice when done. Her pattern is under the pattern section.
