A whimsical beret style hat fashioned from clever crochet crocodile stitches, the Oak Sprite Hat is a must-have woodland accessory! This full-length crochet pattern is sure to spark the imagination -worked from center to brim using a special textural crochet technique, it’s topped with a quick and easy crocheted stem. Evoking the life of the forest, in brown it’s a beautiful acorn cap, in greens it reminds me of a thistle blossom - I’ve even heard hedgehog!

Written pattern, special stitch instructions, and tutorial photos are all included to make this adorable acorn hat, one adult size following the written instructions but notes are included for how to modify for baby/toddler. If you are unfamiliar with some of the crochet techniques and are a visual learner, I also offer this pattern as a video tutorial linked in the pattern or through my blog.
