This hat was inspired by one that’s been floating around various crochet forums but without a pattern so I kept working and re-working the design until I finally figured out something similar. Add crocheted flowers, buttons, or other trims to add some sparkle to the hat. Leave off the brim for a beanie or change colors every round!

While the pattern is written using size 5 crochet thread, it can also be worked up using thicker or thinner thread, just make sure the measurements for the size being made are followed. Included sizes are from newborn to adult female. Also included is a simple flower pattern but feel free to use any flower pattern you like instead.

Named after my maternal grandmother, Dorothea Theresa.
