Team Umizoomi Hat, Crochet Pattern

Today I am excited to share something that has taken me my whole crocheting career (haha) to accomplish.  I have always been able to read patterns, and I generally look online for free/low cost patterns when I am crocheting.

I was, however, unable to find a pattern I liked for a hat that a friend ordered for her daughter.  I searched high and low (well, I used google) and didn't come up with anything I liked.  So.... I made my own.  This might not seem like a big deal to anyone.  It was to me!  I haven't ever thought about anything that I have made... never really thought about what kind of mathematical skills go into developing a pattern...




Anyway, it didn't take as long as I had anticipated.  I came up with a cute little hat in no time at all.

Here it is,  I have decided to share this free pattern here for your crocheting pleasure, for a limited time.

I have listed my materials at the top.  Please let me know if there is anything that doesn't work, doesn't add up... I found it was difficult writing it out so hopefully if there are any errors they are in the typing and not the actual pattern :)



TEAM UMIZOOMI HAT CROCHET PATTERN







For this hat I used Loops & Threads Impeccable (Arbor Rose, Butterscotch).  I used a random white with flecks of orange & pink for the flower, and I used Red Heart Super Saver for the Braids.

This yields a hat for toddler size (It was made for an almost 3-year-old).
