The 'Oh so Cute'Crochet Baby Cluster Hat' Free Crochet Baby Hat Pattern by Lisa Auch Crochet 

FREE crochet Pattern baby hat crochet flower free pattern
Newborn size and 3 months size are shown in the picture

This is such a pretty crochet pattern written to Help those who have maybe just started crocheting but are ready to take the next steps and start creating gorgeous items.

I love this quick and easy-to-make cluster stitch hat, I was asked countless times for a crochet pattern for this hat in the picture above after I posted the picture of the adorable white hat with pink flowers.

 People were asking me If I would consider writing a pattern to create something similar. I decided I would like to re-create it with the cluster stitch. 

I have tried to include more steps and instructions than in a plain crochet hat pattern, to help those who are attempting to work in the cluster stitch for the first time.  

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 the head is achieved.
