Quick Crochet Hat Pattern For Charity
This hat pattern is a great make for your charity gifts or friends and family. The top-down technique makes it super easy to adjust for any size you need, it can be made with a variety of yarn fibre for that perfect feel, and works up super quick!
About The Comfort Beanie
This year I chose to do all Cancers for the Crochet Cancer Challenge and chose a lovely lavender/purple yarn.
I wanted to focus on everything this year. So I wanted to design a quick and simple pattern that would be an easy quick make for all sizes, all charities, and all skill levels.

- ch(s) – Chain(s)
- hdc – Half Double Crochet
- hhdc – Herringbone Half Double Crochet
- st(s) – Stitch(es)
- slst – Slip Stitch
- Rnd (s)- Round(s)
- US Terminology
- All beginning ch1 do not count as a stitch
- Hat is worked top down
- You can adjust the height of the hat by adding or subtracting the number of rounds in the repeat section
- It is most important to reach measurement then round count. If you do not match round counts for the correct measurements do more or less rounds to meet the correct size. Follow the same increase sequence if you need to add more increase rounds
