Put a Lid On It

Beanies, bonnets, tams, berets, fezes, hoods, skullcaps, bowlers, fedoras, helmets, Stetsons, skimmers, pillboxes, crowns, derbies, and caps.  There's no doubt about it - folks like their hats!
In my opinion, hats are one of the best things to crochet.  Hat patterns can be super simple, perfect for a beginner.  Or they can be ornate and complicated - a great challenge.  And, of course, every level in between.  Hats can be made in any color, in many patterns and designs, from a vast array of yarns and materials, and can be adorned and decorated in any number of ways.  The possibilities are endless!
Best of all, hats have a purpose!  They look good, they keep you warm, and they show your style.  They also make wonderful gifts.  Yep - hats make outstanding crochet projects.  Time to get stitching!
Here are some great free patterns to get you started:
