This pattern includes all 10 hat sizes evenly ranging from Newborn to Adult. Plus, 3 & 4-in (8 & 10 cm) flowers. Instructions are clearly written, separately for each size. Format is easy to follow. Directions for felting and shaping are included.

These hats are soft and pack-able which makes them great for traveling. They are fun to make, durable, and hold their shape. Flower brooches can be added to clothing and other accessories, too!

Please note: Hand sewing with needle & thread is required to complete the flower/brooch.

Flower will appear smaller against a larger hat; larger against a smaller hat. Actual styling will vary.

Crochet first. Then, do the felting process with your washing machine. Hot water, detergent, and agitation will cause stitches to shrink, cling, and tangle together to form a solid fabric that you can shape and let dry.

Basic stitches and crochet knowledge required.
Abbreviation key with descriptions + instructions for felting, provided.
