Crochet The Hide n Seek Hat



Hide n Seek

A crochet hat pattern designed for a
new born to 3 months and also for larger sizes too!
 There is a really nice texture in the hat which is suitable for both male and female, making this a perfect, unisex hat design.
 The pattern is a repeat of just 2 stitches on one row, then the next row has the same 2 stitches but in reverse, very clever use of the dc and fpdc.

The yarn weight is worsted/Aran/10 ply
 and the crochet hook size is a 6 mm US J/10.
The hat will keep you warm on the coldest of days.
The hat works up quickly and is perfect for the seasoned charity hat maker.
Please enjoy this pattern and as always it is a free pattern in which I love to share.
