Peppermint Swirl Cap
This is a chunky crochet cap you can make in about 2 hours of free time. You can practice changing colors or choose to make it in one color. Choose red and white for peppermint swirl or your favorite team colors! It takes only small amounts of yarn, so you can use leftovers from your other projects.
A small brim is pinned up with two buttons. Crochet tightly in chunky yarn, it doesn't require any insert or starching.
