Puddles of Love Hat

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


I'm sure I have said this before. I love making baby hats!

I have probably made more baby hats than any other item. It was only natural that I would make a hat to go along with the Puddles of Love Blanket. This hat is made with Tunisian Crochet. To keep it simple it is worked flat and seamed together when you are done. 

This hat is a great option to start with if you find the size of the blanket overwhelming. Try the hat first, master the stitches and then you will be ready for the blanket.

    Notes:

    • Keep your tension loose throughout the whole hat. 
    • There is not a lot of stretch in the hat so be sure your gauge is correct so you end up with the right circumference. 
    • Just like the blanket the hat is a pattern repeat of 10 + 1.
