Winter is coming! No one wants to admit it, especially me, but it's true.
My kids love when I make them hats because it's easier for me to make what they want instead of aimlessly roaming stores looking at hats that are ok, but not really what they want.
I made this rainbow slouch hat for my daughter a few years ago and while it still fits, it is very well worn and she could use a new one. It's about that time of year to crochet hats so we're not scrambling to find something on that first cold day.
You can certainly use any color combinations you (or your child) wants, but I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't love a rainbow.
