4-in-1 Flopsy Hat

A friend of mine asked me to make a gift for a one year old girl. We decided that crochet shoes and toddlers don’t work so well together. The only reason crochet shoes are cute is because they are so small, once they get bigger they lose their cuteness. So we settled on the idea of a hat and I began exploring patterns and trying out options. This was my first creation.

It’s half wool (which gives it it’s rustic feel) and half cotton (keeping it light and cool). I used a 4mm hook and made it up in htr (hdc if you are American). For the flower I used this pattern. I quite like the way the flower can come on and off and how you can button up the one side to give it different looks. It ended up being too small for a 0ne year old, but fits a little pinky who’s 6 months.
