Introduction

My daughter, Laura, was my inspiration for this pattern. She is so much like me in so many ways and such a joy to watch grow up. Her favorite color is brown, which, much to her mother's shopping happiness, replaced her preschool desire to be exclusively pink. Influenced by her devotion to her Girl Scout Brownie troop, she has named her hat Brownie. You can find me at www.tiffcrochets.com.

Bernat Cashmere Natural Blends (worsted weight, 65% acrylic/30% nylon/5% cashmere, approx. 60 g/2.1 oz, 94 m/103 yds). Color Earth.

This is a great pattern.  You can almost memorize it after the first time, so it is easy to make a lot of them.

They work up quickly.

this is a lovely pattern. I am trying to do some hats that are not quite so open for a friend who has cancer and will loose all her hair soon due to treatment. Thank you for this pattern - I crocheted it in babysoft pink and it turned out really well. Christine Australia
