Additional Notes:
-ch-1, or ch-2 at beginning of round does not count as a st
-This hat can be made with or without pearl beads. String the beads on ahead of time if making the hat in a solid color, or string them onto color C after you finish crocheting the flower and leaves.
-Beads pose a choking hazard. This hat should not be used as a toy. The baby should not be left unattended while wearing it.
-If you are not sure how to incorporate the beads in the sc stitch, I have a video on my blog of another project where I follow the same technique.
