Introduction: This little hat was designed with the male child in mind, nothing too fancy, just a little texture and a very simple technique makes this the perfect recipe, for a quick and attractive hat for the little man in your life. A sc, ch, sc, is all that it takes! Once you are comfortable with the way the hat is made, it may be time for you to experiment with adding more colors, a fine way to use up left over yarn or co-ordinate colors to match a favorite outfit you have. cats rockin crochet
