CROCHET LEMON HAT – FREE PATTERN

www.lemonbeedesigns.com

Any project I start is usually due to one of two reasons. Either I want/need something or I found a lovely yarn/fabric, bought some, and now I have to think of something to make with it. This project became to being because of the latter and as lemons have been a bit of a repetitive theme with me lately, it took the form of a chunky lemon hat for kids. Once I had finished one for my son I was wondering whether it being a lemon was obvious. Luckily as soon as we stepped outside with the hat, a little girl yelled “ look mummy, a lemon hat!”.

Weave in the last end and use the long end from the start to sew the leaf onto the top of the hat. Start by sewing through the middle top of the hat (the middle of the beg magic ring). Then sew the top half of the leaf onto the hat (down the middle of the leaf).
