Crochet Tutorial: Winter Winds Ski Cap

Crochet Tutorial: Winter Winds Ski Cap

When we get the opportunity to create something special for the pint-sized ones in our lives, and you have one of the cutest little guys on the planet here to model, you do what you can to make it all worthwhile! He even picked out a name for this latest creation! The Winter Winds Ski Hat! I used Deramores Chunky Yarn for this project, and it was absolutely divine! Soft, warm, and oh, so wonderful! The best combination anyone can ask for!

-I used Deramores yarn, but you can use any worsted weight or chunky yarn for your project.
-The hat I demonstrated in the video and wrote this pattern for is for a child size, but you can increase more to make a bigger hat if you need to. You can also stop the increases sooner to make a smaller hat. (See video tutorial for verbal instructions on sizing)
-The number in parenthesis ( ) at the end of each row means the amount of stitches in that round.
