Mountain Ridges Crochet Hat- a free pattern

This free crochet hat pattern has been a LONG time coming! I have wanted to make a matching hat ever since I made the Ribs and Ridges scarf! But a few tries ended up in my WIP pile until I finally decided to try again and I am so so happy with the result! The Mountain Ridges Crochet Hat made me think of getting a Christmas tree up in the mountains so that is what I named it 🙂

You will need:
Size 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (I used I love this yarn from Hobby Lobby)
5.0, 5.5. 6.0 hook depending on the hat
Pom pom (use this tutorial to make your own or buy one here!)
Yarn needle to sew in ends.

You can find the matching Ribs and Ridges scarf pattern here.

When you make this hat, the chain two does not count as a stitch. You will attach each round in the first stitch.
Gauge:
(6.0m hook and I love this yarn) 13 sts by 8 rows of DC equals  a four-inch square
(5.5m hook and I love this yarn) 14 sts by 9 rows of DC equals  a four-inch square
