Hi! This original pattern design in US crochet terms may not be distributed or sold as your own, but feel free to sell finished hats made from this pattern!

level: intermediate

skills: know how to ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), hdc (half double crochet), fphdc (front post hdc, which is the same as regular hdc except after the initial yarn over you insert hook not into the top loops but in & around the post itself & out the front, pulling body of st (stitch) toward you, then continue with yarn over & pull through so you have the three loops on the hook, then yarn over & pull through all three loops on hook as usual; if needed, youtube search ‘front post half double crochet’ for helpful video demos), & bphdc (same as fphdc except the hook is inserted from behind & around the post itself & out the back, pulling body of st away from you)

hook: K/6.5mm

yarn: two skeins bulky weight Loops & Threads Charisma yarn in complementary colors

As a crocheter for 20 years now (yowzah) & a former professional proofreader, you can crochet this with the confidence that it has been gone over with a fine-tooth comb!

Feel free to contact me anytime with pattern-related questions & I’ll typically get back to you within 24 hours.

Enjoy!
