This has always been one of my favorite crochet hat patterns. It’s a unisex pattern and works up to give a ribbed pattern. My favorite yarn lately for these hats is Bernat Roving. It’s a bulky yarn that’s 80% acrylic and 20% wool, it does need hand washing but works up quickly and stays soft. However any bulky yarn will work well for this hat.

Fold hat in half matching up first and last rows. Slip stitch the seam together, fasten off yarn after last stitch.
Leaving a long tail weave a running stitch around the top edge of the hat, pull to gather. Knot yarn. If there is a small opening at the top sew closed with remaining tail yarn, knot off and weave the end in.
