Amy gave this pattern a 10/10 and let her kids pick their favorite colors for their hats. They turned out so sweet. My favorite one she made was the toddler crochet hat that was very brightly colored. Her daughter calls it the princess crochet hat.

Isn’t this the most precious thing for beanie patterns. I love that the top of the hat comes with these sweet little flowers and leaves but you can also easily take them off if you don’t love them on your crochet project or want to do a boy oriented one. 

It uses simple stitches like double crochet and single crochet. It is a child size beanie. You might be able to do larger sizes if you know how to adjust patterns. You could also check out our crochet hat size chart and adjust using it. 

Tammy did the pattern for the team and here was her email back to me. “The adorable hat came together beautifully, and the flowers turned out great too. I love how the hat looks in her photo, and mine turned out just like hers, which is exactly what I was hoping for!”
