Crochet this easy ribbed hat in your school colors (or your kids' / grandkids' school colors, as appropriate.) The hat is sized for high schoolers, college "kids"  and adults, but the pattern can be easily adjusted for other sizes too.

Crocheted Bookmarks

School and books go hand in hand, and it's always nice to have a few bookmarks around for keeping track of how far you've read in any given textbook. My advice: make several of these for each student or teacher on your gift list.
