Long Double Crochet Hat with Flower
This breathable hat is perfect for a fall or spring day. The textured long double crochet stitch creates air holes to keep your head from overheating when the weather is still mild. This is also a great stash-buster project, using approximately 150 yards of Color A and approximately 40 yards of Color B.
This pattern includes both written instructions in U.S. crochet terminology and an international crochet stitch symbol chart. This is an intermediate level pattern that will take about 2-3 hours to complete.
