Flower

I used the flower tutorial from Crochet Geek for the flowers pictured.

Bow

I came up with a very simple pattern to work into a bow.

Ch 8, hdc in 3rd chain from hook, hdc 5. Ch 2, turn, hdc 6 across. Repeat this pattern until your piece measures 12 inches. Form a bow and secure with a piece of yarn or a simple chain. Finish, weave ends.


Add a safety pin or jewelry pin by either sewing or hot gluing to the back of your embellishments to make them detachable. Or, sew your flower, bow or buttons directly to the hat – your preference!
