The frolic hat is super easy to crochet from start to finish. Along the brim I worked some bobbles, then afterwards I alternated between a single crochet and double crochet round. It’s a pretty stitch that’s perfect for winter or spring.
The pattern is given in one size only, but the brim is easy to adjust to any size that you want from baby to adult. As for the height, the hat is started at the brim and worked in a tube, which makes it easy to adjust in height as well.
And it’s crocheted in a soft worsted yarn, which gives it a nice and comfortable stretch.
