Easy Floppy Hat
FFor fun and relaxed style this winter, crochet a comfortable floppy hat in brightly colored yarn. This easy hat crochet pattern is great for beginners, worked in rows and seamed instead of rounds. Boys and girls of all ages will love wearing and showing off this cute hat. If you're feeling extra creative, you could even add little handmade pom poms to the two sides of the hat for a fun and whimsical embellishment. This Floppy Hat is also a great weekend project or something to crochet up quickly during a road trip or long flight.
