Four different floral motifs unite to create this unique toque.
A large graphic flower is centered in the crown. The sides feature three diffeent floral squares. You chose which motif to repeat – once for child size or twice for the adult size.

The squares are approximately 4.5”/11.4cm each using a F/3.75mm hook and dk/light worsted weight yarn.

There are many possibilities for using colors. The hats shown use three, but if you decied on one, the dimensional flowers and will still bring depth and texture to the hat. Autumnal colors would make this
great for fall.

It may be insouciant and playful or quiet and demure.

Child size 4 squares= 19”/48.3 cm
Adult size 5 squares = 22.5”/57.2cm

Pattern includes direction for adjusting sizes.

I made this in wool/cotton primarily. I think this will be lovely in 100% cotton, and linen, or other warm weather yarns.
This is a 3-season hat (NE US, northern temperate zone).
