Funky Hat

Introduction

This pattern came to me because of a photo I saw of my cousin wearing a similar hat. I thought I could design something like it quite easily, so I picked up an old pattern for a beret I had and altered it to fit the description I wanted. I then selected some recycled yarn from my stash and started to crochet. I worked it up in about two days because I was so anxious to see the final product. So far, it’s gotten great reviews!

The Pattern

Row 1: 6 sc in center of ring
