Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®
13 sc + 16 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm)
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
HAT Ch 33. Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 32 sc. Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each sc across. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 16 in. (40.5 cm) from beginning. Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through ends of rows along one long edge and pull to gather for top of Hat. Knot securely.
FINISHING Seam short sides of piece together to make Hat. Weave in ends.

Child's Easy Crochet Hat Reviewed by Kelly Schneider on 2013-10-11
I've made this hat in a variety of sizes (child, adult, and a bit larger for the bigger men). It works up so quick and works with every yarn I have tried. I tend to stitch a bit tight, so I changed the SC to a HDC and it came out so nice and stretchy but still warm and fitting. I recommend this to every crocheter out there!
