Hello crafters! I’m really exited to share with everyone this post with a Basic Preemie Crochet Hat Free Pattern.
This little beginner friendly crochet hat is the first of a series of basic crocheted hats.
I’m thinking of naming this series “Hats for everyone” or “Hats in every size” (By the way, I would really appreciate your opinion about which name goes better with this series. If is not too much to ask, leave a comment letting me know which name is your favorite)
I know there are infinite free crochet patters around the web. And you can find all kind of sizes and all kind of designs and faculties.
But I really wanted to make a collection of a beginner friendly pattern, and make more than the basic sizes.
I decided to make them beginner friendly so anyone can benefit from them, and to make them in all standard sizes, also to benefit anyone that wants to create hats for friends, family or even to sell at craft shows or etsy, or anywhere really. I love when people show me they use my patterns, and I’m also very happy to see if they’re selling their finished object, because that means my patterns are helping someone!
