Granny Flower Hat

Granny Flower Hat – Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern by: Amber Wheeler (funkifybers.com)

This cute and easy pattern can either be made into a closed top hat or a messy bun hat. It fits most teens and adults, and is perfect for this fall weather we are having up here in Alaska. The first one I made was about 5 years ago, and I still wear it almost daily throughout the winter. I hope you have fun with this pattern, it’s my go to pattern for making items for craft bazaars during the holiday season.
