lion brand® wool-ease® thick & quick® gold medal crochet hat

You don’t need to be a world champion at crocheting to make this super-cute, super-chunky hat. (Adorable pom-pom FTW!) Our simple pattern below will help you emerge triumphant with your very own, totally medal-worthy version!
Step 1
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
   -  Finished Circumference: About 19" (48.5 cm); will stretch to fit a range of sizes.
   -  Finished Height: About 12" (30.5 cm).
 
GAUGE: 8 single crochet = about 4" (10 cm); please be sure to check your gauge.
 
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 2 - Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn, Solids – Fisherman
 

HAT:
Chain 23.
 
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across (22 single crochet).
 
Row 2: Chain 1 and turn. Working in back loops only, single crochet in each single crochet stitch across.
 
Repeat Row 2 until your piece measures 19" (48.5 cm) from the beginning. 
 
Cut the yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread the yarn tail through the eye of a blunt needle, then weave it through the ends of the rows along one long edge.
 
Pull the yarn tail to gather the top of the hat, then knot the yarn securely. Sew the sides of this piece together to make the hat.
 
 
FINISHING:
 
Pom-Pom
 
Follow the instructions that are included with each pom-pom maker set to make a pom-pom. If you prefer to learn by watching, check out our pom-pom video, here
 
Once your pom-pom is complete, use its long ends to tie it to the top of your hat.
 
Weave in all remaining yarn tails and trim away any excess yarn.
