Free Spring Crochet Patterns
Yellow Bird, Blue Bird

This hat is worked seamlessly, the instructions for my seamless method are written out but can also be found here.  This hat is the perfect adornment for those brisk but sunny Spring days.  Made with 100% cotton, it will keep your little one cozy without making  them too hot.

This pattern is written in toddler size but can easily be made into any size.  This tutorial on designing your own custom crochet hat will help you with making this hat, and all others, in any size.   Just keep in mind that your increasing rounds must end in increments of 3.  Adjust height according to the dimensions in this tutorial.
