Here in California summer is just around the corner! The weather is warm and sunny, and roses begin to bloom.
And here are Irish roses "blooming" on girls hats!
The hat itself is very simple. It's made in a basic crochet mesh technique. It is decorated with a rose and two leaves, which are made in the Irish crochet technique. Nothing new really.
And yet I fell like I've created something quite precious and unique. That's the beauty of the crochet art. There are endless ways to create new and exciting things using the old and time-tried techniques.
The hat is made using a steel hook size 1.75 mm and 100% acrylic crochet thread size 5 (I used Handicrafter by Bernat). Cotton crochet thread would work too, though acrylic would give you a softer texture.
The pattern is available in two sizes: 1-2 years old and 3-5 years old.
