Crochet Hat For Baby Girl

Crochet baby hats are such a great way to show off your crochet skills. This one is made with a multiple of 3 chains, so if you want to make it bigger or smaller than my example hat, just add or subtract chains until you get the right size. You will also want to adjust the number of rows as necessary (see step 2a or 2b).

2b. If you want to add rows like in my example hat, do another round of single crochet and fasten off. (But my daughter had already lost interest by then so I did not get a picture to show.)
