I made this Butterfly hat for my four year old daughter. She loves to wear hats! You can adjust the size with changing the hook size, which I listed below. I uploaded a video if you need more assistance with this hat. I used caron soft yarn with a H hook, but you can use medium worsted yarn.
If you tell others about my work, please only link back to my blog, but don't copy my patterns to your site. Also you can sell anything you make from my patterns, but don't sell the free pattern. Thank you!
Use smaller hook for smaller size or larger hook for a larger hat.
Supplies: Caron Soft yarn, H hook You can use medium worsted yarn too. Use a different size hook for a different size listed up above. For a bigger hat, add another round of dc. If it's a smaller size, than omit a dc round or two. Lengths are listed above with the hook size. Take Measuring tape from the top of the hat (Round 1) and to the bottom of the hat to measure the length of the hat and lengths are listed above the hook size needed for each size. Each round is about 1/2 inch or so long depending on the size.
