For a while now, I have been promising my husband I would crochet him a hat. Well...I finally did it...and, just in time for the cold weather!
I used a mix of dark heather gray and black yarn made of 25% Merino wool 75% microdenier acrylic fibers. The yarn acts and feels lot like acrylic (as that makes up most of the yarn) but the wool gives it an extra bit of warmth.
I loosely followed this pattern. It was super simple and easy to follow. A great project for a beginner! You cannot really see it from the picture, but it has a solid black band near the bottom of the hat. I put this lower on the hat than the pattern suggests.
Thanks to Crafty Christina for the pattern! Happy crafting!
You can also find the hat on Ravelry!
