  5. hi teresa! awesome job! thank you for getting me back into crochet. i tried the single crochet but the hat turned out a little too stiff so i used a double crochet instead and turned out great. my daughter loves it! my son wants one now, too but will try the sc for his because he wants a stiffer hat.
