Knitting and crocheting are definitely not just your grandmother's hobbies anymore. These simple crafts can be used to create creative, fun and, most importantly, warm winter hats.

Many of these hats can be bought, but if you've got an eye for knitting and crochet, you can make them yourself as well! If you know of a good design (or have made one) that's not on our list, please share it with us! And vote for your favorites so everyone can see them too.
