Even novices can get in on the hatmaking fun, because these chic headgear patterns use only the most basic crochet techniques--and go forward one skill at a time. Yet the finished items look as good as something bought from a stylish boutique. A saucy brimmed hat, with a black yarn ribbon and bow trim, is positively adorable. The attractive striped helmet takes its inspiration from Peruvian colors, and has a flap to keep ears toasty warm. Liven up any outfit with a whimsical square cap in an array of pinks. From the sophisticated to the zany, the traditional to the unique, there's a style for everyone.
