Plaid Hat

Hats have always been one of my favorite things to crochet because they are quick and they actually have a useful purpose. Plus, there are so many different styles of hats. And, since it is getting cooler where I am from, it is the perfect time to start making hats for the upcoming winter.

I love buffalo plaid and I really love trying to put different colors together than the usual red and black. I decided I wanted to try and work it flat and seam the side and the top, instead of working it in the round.

I used We Crochet Galileo which is sport weight and a d-3.75 mm hook.

This pattern has instructions for sizes newborn to adult. Each size is separated to make it easier to follow.

This pattern is being featured on October 28th, in 12 Days of Christmas Patterns, hosted by Fosbas Designs. For more information and to get the code for you free pdf copy of this pattern click the button below:
