If you’re like me, you’ve got a couple of weeks of free time coming up. I love to spend this time relaxing and hanging out with family. But you know I can’t stay away from crochet for too long.
That’s why I also plan to work on some small projects here and there, just for the fun of it. When you work in crochet, it can be easy to forget what a passion it is. That’s why I crochet for fun every chance I get.
Some of the easiest and most fun patterns to work on (in my opinion) are crochet winter hats. I love stitching up different designs and shapes, and they make great gifts. Plus, they’re fast.
If you'd like a chance to polish your crochet skills and techniques so you can have the most polished and professional crochet hats, check out this great Crochet Fundamentals class.
If you want to make the most of your free time, or just take some time for yourself, check out these 21 crochet hat patterns. I’m sure there’s at least one you’ll love
Nicholas Slouch Beanie
