So i had about 2 weeks off of school for christmas and my mother graciously blessed me with a bag full of yarn, sooooo I decided to make a funky hat since i couldnt find one that fit my taste.
Size 9 hook (Or "N" hook)
Size 6.5 hook (Or "K" hook)
Crochet sewing needle
Black worsted weight yarn (4 ply)
White worsted weight yarn (4 ply)
It's gonna be stretchy, for a childs size hat use a smaller hook. This is for a teen or young adult.
