I have been looking for an easy hat pattern that I liked and would be fun to make.
Crochet Geek on YouTube has uploaded an instructional video on how to make a crocheted puff stitch hat.
This is great for me because I prefer crocheting over knitting.
This is a good tutorial video for beginners or those who need a little refreshing.
Crochet Geek demonstrates the first step and then replays it in slow motion so you can see exactly where the hook needs to go and how to maneuver it.
This happens a few times at various steps in the video. So if you get the hang of it the first time, you can skip through the slow motion replays.
Or, if you would rather take a look at the written instructions, Crochet Geek has posted them on their blog as well.
