As I’ve said before, hats are one of my favorite projects to work on for quick gifts. This simple hat is crocheted crown down and uses post stitches to create the 8 little cable ridges that meet up with the ribbed brim.  The pattern is available in 4 sizes, so you’ll be sure to find one to fit a child in your circle of gift giving.

There is one error in the pattern. For Sizes 12 months (4 years) only, Round 9 (10): the instructions between the brackets [ ] should only be repeated 4 times, not 8.
