Easy Crochet Hats To make today
I love crocheting up simple & beginner friendly hat designs so I thought you’d like to do the same too. Crocheted hats make great gifts, are perfect for donations and use up very little yarn, which means you can make a lot! Most of my simple designs are born out of necessity because no fail it is always a day before we need to go somewhere or I need a gift, so I have to crochet something up quick. A quick crochet hat always does the trick!

Most of the beanies and hat patterns on the blog use basic beginner friendly stitches such as the single crochet or half double crochet stitch. I do have a beginner stitch tutorials on the blog which I will list out below if you’d like to become familiar with them.

4 Crochet Hat Patterns for Beginner Crocheters
This beginner-friendly hat was one of my first crochet hat designs a few years ago and still is one of my favorites to date! It does use Lion Brand Woolspun (which is no longer available, which makes me super sad), but any yarn can be used with a similar weight.
The Leigh Crochet Hat uses Jeans yarn from Lion Brand (which is fantastic!), was designed for a great cause and worked up fast! Let me know if you decide to make this one! The Leigh is a FREE crochet pattern that you can download in my maker shop yarnmamas.com too!
The pom striped hat is PERFECT for beginners to crochet because it uses just one stitch! If you can single crochet, then you can make this hat! I also wanted to mention that I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick from Lion Brand for this entire hat.
This beanie is super easy to make and uses just one cake of yarn! The color change in the yarn means no weaving in multiple ends! This pattern uses Caron Cupcake yarn, which is excellent to work designs and looks great in almost any pattern.
