It’s finally that time of year again when we all need to pull out our hats crochet patterns! If you are in need of a winter gear makeover look no further than the Andy Crochet Hat pattern!
To make this simple crochet hat I used less than one skein of Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s choice yarn and finished it off with two coconut shell buttons. This hat goes perfectly with the Andy Button Scarf & Andy Hand Warmers crochet patterns that I released earlier this year! Make sure to check both of them out! 🙂
I am getting a lot of messages about gauge. A guide to gauge is listed in a section below. If you are having any problems with gauge with the recommend crochet hook size I would suggest sizing up a crochet hook or two to try to reach the correct gauge. 🙂 And please remember if you are using a different yarn weight, even a different yarn with the suggested weight outcome will vary. This pattern is meant to be a guide. Please be kind with your comments to me.
If you would to make this bigger go up a crochet hook size or two.
