My sister in law photographer wanted a pair of these hats for a twin photo shoot. So I looked at some pictures of these hat and decided to make up my own. Here is what a did. It’s kind of 1/2 Tutorial, 1/2 Pattern.

Materials - A size I crochet hook, 1 skein of each color. I used Lion Brand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton in strawberry & almond. This yarn is marked as level 4 worsted weight. It had a bumpy texture and seemed closer to a level 5 in bulkiness to me.

This hat is 37 inches from end of tail to bottom of the ribbed brim and about 12 inches in circumference.
The pattern is sized for an infant, but there are directions on making the hat bigger.
