This hat is worked using an H hook and a small amount of Caron Simply Soft Yarn. The finished circumference is about 10" so you can adjust to a smaller or larger size by using a different sized hook or a lighter or heavier weight yarn. Add any adornment that you wish, I chose a fabric and bead applique. Whatever you choose make sure that you secure it well for safety reasons.
Note: This pattern is in done in American crochet terms.
