Shabby Chic Girly Hat

Hello Friends!

As promised I am here with a crochet project. I created this hat for an old classmate's daughter. Her little girl had a similar knit hat and she had outgrown it and liked it so much that she asked me to re-create the hat. I really love how the hat turned much so that I am thinking of making an adult-size hat for myself ;-) I just love the extra long tassels and the pearl embellishments. Adding these little extras to a hat really make it stand out. 

The hat was made using the base hat pattern from Sarah's owl hat pattern over at Repeat Crafter Me. Her hat patterns always fit perfectly and if you know a little bit about crochet it is very easy to change them up and create a completely different hat! As you can see, this isn't an owl hat, I just used the base pattern to create the striped hat and then added the lovely flowers. I always had so much trouble getting my hats to fit correctly but by using her hat patterns as a base, they always fit the way they should…so a huge thanks to Sarah! You cannot go wrong with any of Sarah's patterns! Go check out her blog…she has tons of free patterns and they are very easy to follow!

The pattern for the flowers and leaf can be found here. The pattern is in UK crochet terms but includes the US equivalent terms. This is a great flower pattern and the color combo possibilities are endless…and just think of all the places you could attach these! 

Thanks to all the crocheters out there who provide these free patterns, I am forever grateful. I am still trying to figure out how to create my own crochet patterns and when I do, I plan to return the favor and provide some of them free for everyone else to enjoy!

So, enough with my ramblings…here is the adorable hat!

Materials Used:
•Vanna's Choice Baby Yarn in Sweet Pea (green)
•Vanna's Choice Baby Yarn in Little Boy Blue (medium blue)
•Red and Natural colored yarn are from my stash (can't remember what brand!)
•Small beads or pearls (for centers of flowers)
•Small amount of embroidery floss (for sewing beads on)
•Sewing needle (for sewing beads on)
•Yarn needle (for weaving in ends)
•Crochet hook size H-8 (5.0 mm)

I really hope you all enjoy this hat as much as I do! I am doing my first ever link-up with this post! So excited about that! See the link-up details below. Have a wonderful day! Spring is finally in the air here in MN!
