I was recently told about a website that has some easy and straight forwarded crochet and knitting patterns (www.favecrafts.com)
This is a good pattern for crocehting love caps:
Also, Youtube has some good tutorials that are easy to follow. Just type in "crochet hat". I am in the process of putting together a "love cap" tutorial booklet that will have step by step pattern for crocheting and knitting!
I am not too familiar with knitting, so I am not posting a pattern. If anyone has an easy knitting cap pattern, feel free to share! Thanks.
