I created this Cute striped flower baby hat with medium worsted yarn and a J hook. If you need more assistance I uploaded a video for the hat and flower. The Video will show you how to do a color change and create this pretty puff stitch flower.
If you want to make this hat bigger, than you need to change the hat size and add more increase rounds, here is the pattern to follow: http://www.amyscrochetpatterns.com/2015/06/how-to-double-crochet-hat-with-video.html

Use a larger hook for a larger hat or make an increase.
