As many of you know, I have my own yarn line with Red Heart, Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™. Of course, I seriously love this yarn and want to use it for as many projects as possible.

My studio has an entire shelf FULL of this 100% washable Merino yarn, and it serves as my inspiration wall. Often, I will look at the shelf, mix and match colors, and get a spark of inspiration for a design. Something like that happened just a couple of weeks ago when I searched for the perfect colors to make a winter hat for me!

This Free Crochet Hat Pattern Was Born

Once I chose the colors, I sat down and whipped up this super cute hat.

I used the basic single crochet ribbing for the cuff and a traditional V-st pattern for the body of the hat. Those are simple stitches, and I combined them to make a wonderful free crochet hat pattern that is easy, fun, and a perfect beginner crochet pattern.

Here is a great free pattern review video with a very useful tip from my friend Ellen Gormley about this hat.
