Free women’s crochet hat pattern
Are you a crochet hat addict? You can crochet this stylish women’s hat with this free pattern.
Crochet beanies are fun and fast projects that make great gifts and add color and personality to sometimes dreary winter colors and weather.
This crochet stitch repeat resembles the alpine stitch but it’s not quite the same. It’s a modified puff stitch working the double crochet stitch into the front post below. Once you get in your rhythm the hat will come together in a day or two depending how much time you have.
