|About the Book|
This ebooklet is a crochet pattern (U.S. abbreviations) for this fast and simple baby cap with its matching shamrock pattern. It is worked primarily in single crochet and has instructions for four sizes: preemie, newborn, 3 months and 6 months. (The sizing may vary depending on your yarn and the tightness of your stitches). The final piece has the look of a softly woven basket because of the stitch, and its simple turned-up brim almost looks like a little derby hat or a leprechaun hat. The pattern comes with instructions for the shamrock garland in a small and large size also, perfect for your little one!Its super quick to crochet- the cap uses sc, dc, slip stitch and chain stitch, and takes 40 to 60 minutes to make, for an experienced crocheter. There is a key to abbreviations, lots and lots of color photos, and special notes about working this project.Youll need 2 or 3 sport/baby/ light weight yarn colors and a size H (5.00 mm) hook. For the shamrocks youll move down to an F or G hook. (3.75 or 4.0 mm) None of the hats will use even a skein of yarn, only half to three quarters of your typical skein sizes.Feel free to make and sell items from this pattern!
