Introduction

I love to make "Holiday" hats and came up with this one for Valentines Day.

Materials List

Use hook size 4.00 mm, white crochet cotton, the type used for dishcloths and heart shaped buttons etc for decoration.

Finished Size

One size fits all, or you can make smaller using thinner cotton, or yarn to fit a child.

Gauge

Not important. I tend to crochet tight, so gauge may vary.
