loops & threads® joy dk™ buttercream crochet hat

These hats are as soft as buttercream frosting but (fortunately!) they’re a lot less messy to make! Joy DK™ ombré yarns come pre-striped, so you’ll only need one skein to get all these luscious colors. We’ve got both kid and adult-sized patterns below, so what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
Step 1
SIZES: Child (Adult)

FINISHED MEASUREMENT: Hat Circumference = 19 (21)".

GAUGE: 21 sts x 15 rows = 4"; save time and check your gauge.
