Crochet Hats: The Perfect Graduation Gift

I still remember my graduation day. I remember the excitement of finally finishing and my excitement for the future. I also remember the fear. Now I had to find a full-time job and become a "real" adult. But I felt the support of friends and family. They celebrated with me, wrote me encouraging notes and letters, and gave me gifts that would remind me of their love even years after I found my dream job.

So, if you are looking for the perfect graduation gift, I would suggest a crocheted hat. From berets and beanies to stocking caps, you can find the perfect hat style and technique for any graduate in your life.

  A crocheted hat with a bit of slouch is very popular right now. Combining lace with this fashionable profile creates and elegant accessory for a fun afternoon with friends or a trip to that important job interview. Lace is also a great option for a recipient who will be living in a warm climate. Have fun with embellishments and add a dainty butterfly or a fabulous flower. You can use a pin for these embellishments, allowing them to be removed or worn on a jacket.

  I love a hat with a simple shape and a unique twist. Take a simple beanie pattern and add post-stitch cables, intricate colorwork patterns, or inventive bows. Choose a yarn fiber that will best show off the unique features of the hat, such as not using a fuzzy yarn like alpaca for a detailed stitch pattern.

  And don't forget the male graduates in your life. Men love a simple beanie that is not only fashionable but comfortable as well. Try crocheting with a superwash wool for those guys who won't handwash and picking a neutral color that match his entire wardrobe. Or pick a bright red or orange for an eye-catching accessory.
