Tutti Frutti Toddler Hat

By:

Multicolored pompoms make this cute crocheted hat perfect for any baby. The pattern directions for the Tutti Frutti Toddler Hat are written to fit a 12 month old, but could easily be adjusted for other ages. Four different colors of worsted weight yarn are needed to complete this free crochet pattern. It is worked in the round and the pompoms are tied on once the hat is crocheted. It measures approximately 16 inches in circumference and 10 inches tall, not including the ear flaps.
