It all started with the cream hat in my previous post. Made for a friends daughter who is about 7 months old.
Then I moved on to this blue ear flap hat which was surprisingly easy. Jack who is 4 should suit this one nicely. It's not overly decorative, but seems like the kind of hat a little boy might wear happily on a frosty morning to go to kindy.
Then I decided to adapt the pattern for granny clusters...
That cream yarn is left over from the hobo bag and I still have more to use.
Withe the exception of the first hat with the flower and the adaptation I got the patterns here. There are sizes from newborn to toddler.
With the granny adaptation I used this pattern for the crown then moved into granny clusters until I felt the hat was long enough. Then I crocheted a row of tr (dc US) and instead of ribbing the flap I kept it flat so that it would show better.
