In the Designer's Words: "This beginner-intermediate hat pattern can be worked up with less than one skein of yarn and in 2-4 hours! A pretty, almost lacy design, and yet a warm winter hat. The hat is nice and stretchy, so don't worry if it looks a little small as you're crocheting."
One of the best ways to make crochet hat patterns that stand out is by creating them out of unique crochet stitches that add texture to your winter wear. This how to crochet a hat tutorial allows you to add winter warmth to your wardrobe in a unique feminine way. Using the always-popular shell stitch, the Stretchy Shells Crochet Hat Pattern is an intermediate crochet pattern that is sure to become a wardrobe staple this winter. Unlike many other shell stitch patterns, this one can be worn!
NotesThe hat is nice and stretchy, so don't worry if it looks a little small as you're crocheting.
