Spring Crochet Hat-Free Pattern

Efflorescence Hat

This pattern is featured in the Spring Style Blog Hop. Please click the button below to be taken to the round up:


Spring has always been my favorite season. I love how it gets warm and  sunny and the flower start to bloom making the world colorful.

The Efflorescence Hat is made with a linen and cotton blend yarn, so it works well in  warmer weather.  It is also a quick and beginner friendly pattern.

There are a range of sizes from baby to adult, and each size is written separately to make it easier to follow.  You can also purchase an ad free pdf from my Ravelry store, if you prefer.

    I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but my stitch count is totally off.
    Rnd 1: 12 stitches
    Rnd 2: suppose to be 24 stitches. 2 hdc, 1 hdc repeat I get 18 stitches.

    I have the pdf, so I went to the blog thinking maybe the instructions would be different, and they are the same. Will you please help me obtain the correct stitch count?

    1. threefatescreation

      Row 2 is supposed to be 2 stitches in each hdc. And then each row would be followed as written. There is an updated version on Ravelry. If you send me your email I can send it to you directly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  2. Efflorescence hat
    I don’t know who transcribed this pattern, but it total worthless. Every row is incorrect except row one. Corrections need to be made immediately for those of us who have purchased supplies for this project.
