Easter Chick hat crocheted with 100% cotton yarn and embroidered with bracelet floss.
To make a newborn sized version of my Easter Chick hat pattern simply use a 5 mm hook (sz h)
Stitches Used in This Pattern-
Half Double Crochet worked in a spiral. No need to join, chain or turn. You should place a marker at the end of each round so you will know where you begin new rows.
This pattern is crocheted in a spiral. Do not join, do not chain, do not turn.
