A gorgeous crochet baby hat pattern, that will make baby 'Oh so cute' I love this quick and easy to make cluster stitch hat, which became very   popular after I posted this picture on the post Crochet Baby hat Patterns People were asking me If I would consider writing a pattern of something similar, so I decided to try.
I have tried to include more steps and instructions than in a plain crochet hat pattern, to help those who are attempting working in the cluster stitch for the first time.
I have loved the feedback on this page.

This cute little number was inspired by a crochet baby hat I saw online, When I saw this cute little crochet baby beanie I knew I just had to make it, it will be a really great pattern for any size, just keep increasing the clusters row by row until desired size/circumference of head is achieved.

I have tried to put in as much explanation as I can for this hat, to help you to make it.

How to crochet the Leaf for your Crochet flower
Leaves pattern:
Rnd 1: With green, ch 5, * 2 dc on 3rd ch from hook, ch 2, sl st on top of last dc made.
Dc on same st as previous dc. Ch 2, sl st on same st**, sl st on next 2 chs.
Ch 3, repeat from * to **. Cut off.

Sew leaves to the back of flower.

I use this long tail to attach the  flowers together and then attach onto the beanie itself, on this beanie I made 3 flowers, the 2 larger ones, identical but each with bigger hooks. Crochet flowers are fun, once you have mastered the basic crochet flower, have fun experimenting with different wools/yarns sizes of hooks .
