Shell Stitch Crochet Hat- Free Pattern
A Happy Valentines Day to all! I hope you are feeling loved and showing some love today :)
To celebrate, I'm sharing a little something I've been working on for almost a month now- a crochet hat pattern!
This is my first official pattern, so I had to make three hats times to make sure I had it written correctly. But now it's finished and I'm sharing it with all you crocheters out there for free! I would love for some feedback on my pattern, so if you try it out, be sure and let me know how it goes! Or, write me with any questions.
So here's the pattern for the Shell Hat with the flower included. (You can click on the link below to download a pdf to print off)
