For those who are looking for the Shy Butterfly Hat, free crochet pattern

Introduction: Easier than it looks! The little petals are made over 2 rows, with a simple dc row that separates each row of petals. If you can make a ch, dc and understand a cluster stitch, you can make this. There are 2 types of cluster st used in this pattern, the first is for the side way petal and the second for the top petals. I have never made a cluster over 3 st’s, however that is how the bottom cluster works, the top petals are 3 dc’s made  into the same space and the side way petal are made in the 1st ch of a ch 4 with only 2 clusters. You could also use this pattern as a christening hat, because just quietly the petals also look like a bit like a little cross.
