Damon Hat – Free Crochet Pattern

Damon Hat

By The Firefly Hook

Named after a beloved literary character who is as complex as he is down to earth, this hat is delightful to make and yet just challenging enough to keep things exciting. The extra-cozy brim is made by connecting rows in a tube which are then joined to the rest of the hat which are worked in rounds. You can keep it simple as a classic beanie or add a pom for extra flair. Appropriately named, the Damon Hat was made for battling the freezing temps and emerging victorious. You will have the edge on a winter adventure with this delightful namesake.

This hat is the crocheted version of a knit hat from the

Drawn Designs Collection.
