Crochet Hat, Surfer Boy Hats, Pattern No5, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 5 Surfer Boy Hat ***

This is a pattern for a super-cool baby boys hat with surfer stripes and a trendy button flap, which is optional. It is crocheted in simple stitches, UK - DCs and TRs or US - SCs and DCs, with a simple raised stitch to create a ribbed effect on the stripes. This pattern would be suitable for a beginner crocheter.

I make all of my hats using natural fibres, here I've used bamboo cotton yarn for the pale blue hat and organic cotton for the dark blue hats, but it would look equally striking in an acrylic yarn of similar thickness.

All of my patterns state how much yarn I've used making the hats in various sizes, by colour and weight, to allow you to utilise any yarn stash you may have!!

Please feel free to sell the items you make from this pattern but please do NOT sell, distribute or reproduce this pattern in anyway. I would also appreciate you crediting my little shop when you sell the finished items :-). Thank you for your respect.

My patterns are written in both UK/European and US/American crochet terms in two separate files. The PDF file attached to this listing is written in UK/European terms. The zip file attached to this listing contains both the UK/European file and the US/American file. (If you are unsure which one to use, the UK/European file uses terms like htr=half treble and the US/American file uses terms like sc=single crochet and hdc=half double crochet. Hope this helps!)

Thanks so much for looking!! R♥

I ♥ Crochet!!!

I love all things crafty - knitting, sewing, lacemaking, embroidery, but my true passion is crochet. I was taught to crochet by a wonderful lady and am lucky to now be able to pass that knowledge on to others, in my classes and through my written patterns.

I hope you like my little designs. Happy Crocheting! R♥
