Parrot Hat

Free Crochet Parrot Hat Pattern

As a full time vendor during the cooler months, I've been preparing non-stop, all year long, for the fast approaching holiday season. When it was 100 degrees outside, I was still crocheting winter hats like a crazy person.

The most popular product I sell as a vendor are children's hats, which suits me well because I LOVE making them! There's just something special about designing a variety of hats that put smiles on peoples faces. With that in mind, I've decided to dive into my bold, colored yarn stash and create a free pattern to share with you guys. I hope you enjoy!
