It's this the Cutest Hat Ever??!!???
Let's make one.....
Pick your favorite Black and Orange yarn....
I like working with 100% cotton so I use the Sugar'n Cream

MATERIALS:Worsted weight yarn
Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook ( I used a Size I for a larger hat)
Yarn needle (for attaching flower)

I recently learned how to start each hat with a Magic Circle...this allows you to make your starting hole as tight as possible....you can learn this too.....HERE

Flowers are so fun to make....because just like in life all flowers have different size/shape petals so you can't make a mistake!!
YouTube is a great place to learn how to crochet all kinds of flowers! This is also a great site for other FREE crochet flowers patterns HERE Find your favorite...:
Start with the color you want on top of your flower....
Ch 3 join..
SC 6-8 (depending on how many petals you want) in loop
In each SC : Slip stitch, ch1, 2 double crochet, ch 1 slip stitch.
You can change this up however you like....if you ch 2 instead of 1, it changes the shade of the petal making it rounder. Also if you double crochet more it makes a bigger petal.
To add another layer behind flower....
Slip Stitch behind petal....Ch 2, slip stitch behind next petal around.
This gives you a place to crochet the next set of petals.
Change color if you want, I like to make a bigger petal behind a smaller petal...
Slip Stitch in Ch 2 space, Ch2, 5 DC, Ch2, Slip Stitch. Around
Fasten off and leave about 12 inches of tail.
Take your yarn needle and thread tail and attach flower.
I hope that all made sense!! This hat takes me about 1-2 hours to make...so plenty of time for Halloween:-)
