Easy to Crochet Toddler Hat {Free Crochet Pattern} {Video Tutorial}

Easy Crochet Hat

Anastasia Popova

Hats are one of my favorite projects to crochet.  This hat is easy and quick to make.  It is worked from the top down in spiral rounds so there is no need for chaining or joining rounds with slip stitches.  The hat starts with four rounds of increases and then is worked straight down.  The main stitch used is double crochet stitch and the hat is edged with reverse single crochet.  I am using bulky weight yarn so the hat is very quick to make.

The video tutorial shows how to crochet this easy hat step by step.

Skills Required:

  • Basic stitches (mostly double crochet)
  • Adjustable ring
  • Increases
  • Crocheting in the round

Finished size(s): To fit an average toddler.
