An old college friend of mine just became a proud daddy for the first time. He requested I make him and his new son matching hats. Well, I took it one step farther and made nearly matching hats for the whole family.
One of the first things I crocheted successfully was a simple hat. No pattern. No plan. Just start crocheting and see how they come out. That's how I made all of these hats and I enjoyed every stitch.
Not only were they quick to make but I forgot how much fun it is to just crochet away without a pattern or stitch count to keep track of.
I hope the new family enjoys wearing them as much I enjoyed making them.
