I found an old crochet hat pattern I wrote to teach crochet classes about 11 years ago. Jeremy aptly named it Hatkuna Matata. I have just uploaded it to Ravelry, and also to my crochet patterns page.
If you would like to use it to teach someone how to crochet please do!

blp – back loop only ch - chain
dc – double crochet flp – front loop only
hdc – half double crochet rnd – round(s)
sc – single crochet sl st – slip stitch
st – stitch(s)
Hakuna Matata ~ it means “no worries”, a great philosophy, and a good basis for this hat. Easy to create and even easier to wear, and you will look good too! This hat can be made for men, women or children by adding or omitting extra repeats of round 5 in the crown. Embellish it as you like with big buttons, flowers or leave it simple.
It is literally faster to crochet this hat than it would be to go to the store and buy one. Take that Walmart!
