How to Crochet the Easiest Hat Ever

Christmas is a month away, so now’s the perfect time to get started on your handmade presents! I love giving hats as a gift. They’re (relatively) quick to make, fun, and a necessity on cold winter days.

When people think of beginner-friendly crochet and knitting projects, a scarf usually comes to mind. This hat is as easy to crochet as any scarf! It’s simply a rectangle that’s seamed at the side. Then, a running stitch is made to gather the top of the hat. Finally, a pom pom is added.

I included both a video tutorial and the written pattern below.

This is a great new yarn I just discovered at Michael’s. It’s made from recycled plastic bottles! It’s wonderfully soft and plush and it comes is a variety of jewel-toned colors.

Chain 24 (28) sts

Turn the chain over and Single Crochet in the back ridges of each chain.

Once the row is finished, make a turning chain and turn the work over. Single crochet in the back of each chain. Repeat, making a turning chain each time you finish a row. Work until your piece measures 17 (19) inches. Cut the end of the yarn, leaving a long tail.


Fold the piece over and sew the side seam. Turn the piece inside out. Make a running stitch around the bottom of the hat. Pull to gather. Attach pom pom and weave in ends.
