How to Crochet a Puff Stitch Hat

Do you love textured hats? Then you will absolutely love this crochet pattern using Puff stitches. Did you notice the brim? Don't you think the stitch perfectly complements the bulky texture?  I used Lionbrand Wool Ease for the hats. It makes the right kind of Puff stitches, not too bulky. Colors used for the samples are Fisherman and Rose Heather. The furry pom pom and the metal buttons add a nice touch. A tutorial for making your own furry pom pom in just under a dollar will be coming up on my blog shortly. 

The hat is worked bottom up with decreases at the top to shape the hat. Working top down didn't give the same effect as working bottom up. So I decided to pick this approach and just love the outcome. The hat comes in all sizes from baby to adult. You can make one of these lovely hats for every girl in your family. 

* The pattern is written in Standard American terms.

* The pattern includes hats in sizes 0-3 month, 3-6 months, 6-12 months. 1-4 years, 4-10 years, Pre-teen to Small Woman and Large Woman

* The pattern uses Hooks J(6 mm) and I( 5.5 mm).

*Pattern uses Worsted weight yarn (size 4). I used Lionbrand Wool Ease for gauge.
