This pattern is a great introduction to post stitches. It works up over just a couple of evenings, and if you’re a more-experienced crocheter, the pattern is intuitive enough that it makes a good on-the-go project. This crochet hat also happens to be my favorite type of accessory. It’s perfect for a man because it isn’t overly fussy, but a woman may just want to make one (or more) for herself, too.
