Crochet Capelet No 2
This would be a great project for a beginner wanting to try a bit of shaping. Worked flat from the top, simple increases give it shape.
Using about 246 yards (500 grams) for the S/M, 360 yards (750 grams) for the L of a chunky yarn like Magnum by Cascade or Big Wool by Rowan and with a Q (15-16mm) hook in a couple of hours you'll be done!
