Tender Reina Crochet Hat FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
This is a very easy project – perfect for a beginner. You work the hat flat and seam it together at the end. One of my favorite textures in crochet hats is alternating rows of half double crochet and rows of single crochet, all worked in the back loop only. Both sides are beautiful and textured.
This is a one-ball project featuring Be So Tender Yarn, 100% organic cotton, #4 medium worsted weight. This hat works up super quick with a size H/8 (5mm) crochet hook. This is a great project for a beginner, or for last minute gifts!
