Looking for some easy and free crochet patterns? Hats are a great place to start. They take less time to complete than afghans or sweaters and often involve less complicated techniques.

If you're new to the world of free crochet patterns for hats, start with a beginner project.

Also consider creating a matching scarf to go with his new hat.
