Crochet Miniature Hat

Happy New Year everyone!

We had our short crochet break last month but I really don't stop crocheting. #crochetaddict I tried to crochet bows and butterflies. I already took step by step photos of how to crochet a bow and I'll share that soon here.

Meanwhile, if you remember I have already made a crochet mini top hat headband. This time I try to make mini hats with bow.   Here they are!
Crochet Miniature Hat
These are just small hats, around 2.5-3" in diameter, which can be attached to an alligator clip or a headband/elastic band.

Start with a magic ring.
