Mini Crochet Hats
It's that time of year again when your list of gifts to give get longer and your time to make something gets smaller. I love making things for everyone on my list, but I know I can't get them all done. That's when I grab my crochet hook and try to whip up something fun and that is also quick. This year I have a few gifts that I made and can share with you.
First up are these very simple Mini Crochet Hats. They can be used for ornaments, gift tags, gift card holders, or even as a doll hat.
-Worsted Weight Acrylic Yarn (I used mini balls from Knit Picks Brava), 22yds total (8 yds of the Main Color, 6 yds of Color A, 4 yds of Color B and C)
-I/9 (5.5mm) hook
Around 2" wide and 3" tall
Not critical, if yours is larger or smaller it still will be cute!
Make an adjustable ring with Main Color.

Want to make these in person with me? I am teaching Learn to Crochet Top Down Hats at the Mt Lebanon Library this Saturday at 10:30am. It is part of my current series of classes on Learn to Crochet. All you need is basic knowledge of how to single crochet and double crochet. I bring the yarn and hooks. Registration is at their website.
