The Forked Cluster Hat is an easy crochet hat pattern, worked in the round from the top down. For this hat you will need any #4/Medium/Worsted weight yarn in one or two colors. I decided to work my ribbing in a contrasting color but you can absolutely use one color for the entire hat if you wish!

The pattern is written for 5 sizes – Baby, Toddler, Child, Adult Small and Adult Large – so this is a great pattern to make in bulk for gifts.

The hat ribbing is added using the “join-as-you-go” technique which means minimal seaming 🙂 For the body of the hat, you use the larger hook size; for the ribbing, you will go down to the smaller hook for a nice, snug fit.
