Free crochet pattern: A Beginner's Textured Hat in Knit Picks Swish Worsted by Underground Crafter in 7 sizes from newborn through adult large. | This simple hat uses mock bobbles to create texture. It's the companion pattern to A Beginner's Super Scarf.I debated whether to repeat the texture throughout the hat and decided it would be more dramatic if I didn’t! (Also, the mock bobbles “pop out” on the wrong side of the hat, so it would be require a bit more finesse to get them to face the right side on a hat worked in the round.)

This beginner-friendly hat is available in 7 sizes from newborn through adult large, so you can make one for you and as many as you’d like for your family and friends!
