I found this wonderful pattern on Raverly by Leslie Nelle-Urinyi, for a freeform crochet hat....I couldn't resist it, all those bobbles and colors. I started as soon as it finished downloading with only one girl in mind......when it was finished we immediately had to rename it "the crazy hat" not only because the hat its self is kinda crazy, but because the girl in the hat went crazy as soon as it was put on her precious little head!!
I did alter the pattern a little to suit a toddler size head, then added the pom pom on the top and ties off of the ear flaps.
I have to honestly say that not only was this hat fun to make, it has quickly become one of my favorite crochet items to date...and Izzy LOVES her new hat with all her hearts delight!!
