I love free crochet and knit patterns! I can spend hours searching for them online and Ravelry www.ravelry.com is where I find most of them. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind paying for a pattern if I can't find a good free substitute.
I thought I would give away a crochet pattern I designed for a super fast baby hat. I swear this hat only takes me 10 minutes to make but I decided to call it the "30-minute Hat" since it's intended for beginners and beginners might need 30 minutes to complete it. This pattern does not include the flower but you can find oodles of free flower patterns on the web. Here is a good one:
I normally sell this pattern in my shop www.propshop.etsy.com but wanted to give you all a little holiday gift.
Please, please, please let me know what you think of it and post photos of your finished projects. Also, let me know if you find any errors or room for improvement.
