I’ve been making this style ribbed hat for years now, its such a easy pattern and a very quick satisfying make, it's a great beginner project also makes great gifts for friends and family.
Ive made my hat in this gorgeous yarn from
Sirdar called smudge chunky beautiful chenille yarn, lovely and soft, the texture in the pattern is amazing.
Anyway it's a super pattern, all you need to do is crochet a rectangle around your lovely head, fold it in half, sew or slip stitch the sides
together to make a tube, sew around the top, pull tight to close, finish by adding a fluffy pom-pom on top.
I got the ribbed look by working treble crochet stitches into the back loops only, you can create similar effect with half triple crochet stitch
or single crochet stitch. Stroll down for written pattern.
