Easy Hat

Last night my daughter informed me it was wear red day at school the next day, and she really wanted a red hat to wear to school. Luckily for her I had some red yarn on hand and was able to make her a quick hat after she went to bed.

This is a great pattern to have on hand for anytime that you need to make something quick. It can also be adapted to turn it into any other cute hat design. I already promised her that I would turn this one into a ladybug hat for her.
