Five Petal Flower Toddler Hat – Free Crochet Pattern (Original Design)

 

About Pattern:

This pattern is written for simplicity in reading. I was inspired by a home decorating magazine – there was this gorgeous flower painting and I just had to make a hat with a flower border, that was my original design. You can work the border in the middle of the hat or at the bottom, any where, really. Feedback is always welcome!

Did you know?

  • Rows are worked back and forth, on the right and wrong sides of the work.
  • Rounds are worked on the right sides only, going around and around. You can join each round or not. Not joining will not create a seam.

 

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch 2 at the beginning of each round
  • Sl st to join at the end of each round
  • Always dc in same stitch as chain at the beginning of the round
  • Never work in the last st closest to starting chain at the end of the round
  • Repeat from * around
