Crocheted Youth/Adult Hat For Spring

Spring Hat For Youth or Adult

I have been making Spring Hats and here is one that I am quite excited about. I made it from a yarn of medium thickness, and it is very airy, and stretchy too. I am in a process of buying a new camera, since my old one is practically "a goner" - two years ago I dropped it into a sink full of water, when I was videotaping a spider (but dried it and it worked but the quality suffered a little), ant last week I dropped it on the ground, so the quality of the video is just unacceptable anymore. So, who ever would like to crochet this hat along my video (in my youtube channel) must patiently wait until I buy a new camera and videotape my making of this hat. In the meantime try to follow my written patter.

For personal use only. Thank you.

Happy Easter.
