Crochet Baby Trapper Hat

Trapper Hat Collage

This warm and cozy cute crochet baby trapper hat is sized for 1-3 year olds. Use a smaller or bigger hook to obtain a different size or adjust the number of rows in the main body of the hat. I used a basic hat pattern crocheted in double crochets in the round from the fantastic blog Repeat Crafter Me and textured in some rows with dc3togs. The hat features ear flaps, a trapper flap and a fuzzy fringe in a coordinating color to really highlight those cute and chubby baby cheeks. My baby loves her crochet baby trapper hat and it only took me 30 minutes to make!
