Day 15: Happy Henry Hat

I made this years ago when my oldest son Henry was 18 months old. I had only been crocheting for a few months at this point. He’s three years old now. I finally decided to write it down :). It’s literally the easiest pattern to use for a beginner.

Red heart super saver with love.

Row28. Slst in each sp around. Join with slst Fasten off and weave in ends.

To finish:

Turn inside out, Fold in half and sew the top part together (opposite side of row28). I sewed the middle of the top a few rows below so it would divet In and make the pom poms sag better. (See photo below)
Turn right side out
Attach Pom poms to corners of hat.

Honestly, my favorite hat so far and just in time for my new pom Pom maker! I knew the second I saw this I would be making it. I used Bernat decorative yarn. I used my sense of touch quite a bit to figure out where my stitching was because the yarn is so fluffy. Other than that, piece of cake. Now if I could get my kids to stop fighting over it!!!

I ran out of blue yarn to make the heart appliqués. Please see stitch11 for more details/link to heart appliqué.
