Child's Crown Hat

Image of Child's Crown Hat Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This hat sort of looks like a crown and would look great in any color for either boys or girls. It can be made in an evening so it is a quick gift idea. If you need to make the hat bigger or smaller just change the size of the hook and perhaps even the thickness of the yarn used. This is also the first time I am featuring a stitch that I did not make up. This is a well known stitch but some of you may not have tried it before.
