FREE Adult Crochet Hat Pattern (looks like Knit)

Looks like Knit But its Crochet Warm Cosy Winter Hat (FREE Pattern)

A Beautiful Cosy Crochet Hat FREE Pattern   Being Warm at this time of year is essential. I find a lot of the basic crochet hats quite drafty. Here in South West Scotland winds are strong and it's chilly. SO I am always looking for a good thick warm hat. It makes it even better when its a fast, easy pattern.  Worked in Rows, using the amazing 3rd loop stitch of the HDC aka...Camel stitch.  Which makes this hat look like it's been knitted. But Its definitely crocheted.     You can BUY A PDF of This Pattern  From Ravelry Thank you for your continued Support   CLICK HERE

This is brilliant. Such an enjoyable crochet project. I love simplicity of this crochet pattern.   BUT please NOTE: this is not a beginners pattern,  .  I would like to think if you have mastered simple pieces increasing and decreasing, you will find this a very easy project.  It is made in basic shaped pieces and then sewn together.
You should have experience in shaping for pieces front and back and neck edges. I have already answered many questions in the comments section please read through the WHOLE pattern before commencing.

This can be made for a boy or a girl, but really the pattern gives it a really cosy texture and my niece loves her son wearing this hooded cardigan whilst out and about.
