Crochet Inspired Cabbage Patch Hat 



I made this hat for my toddler! She won't let me do her hair, so this was an easier way to give her braids.

Supplies:
Brown yarn
G hook
Yarn needle

 Abbreviations:
sc=single crochet
sl st=slip stitch
ch=chain
dc=double crochet

Hair Braids (Make two): Cut 25 pieces of 20 inch long strands of yarn. Then fold in half and tie with a piece of yarn in the center. You can braid it or tie in 2 places about 1 inch apart. I braided it, as seen in the picture above. Fold the hat in half and sew on the braids on each side about 2 inches from the center of the hat.
