I made this one for my granddaughter. It’s six granny squares with three colors/rows. I mixed up the colors so none of the squares are the same.
I stitched the squares together using a yarn needle, and then did a row of single crochet around the edge that would be the top. I crocheted a total of about 5 single crochet rows, and then put the hook into every OTHER stitch until the top basically closed up. I left the end of the yarn long, inserted it into the needle, and secured the hole. Next, I did five single crochet rows along the bottom edge.
Time to complete: Approximately 2 hours. Easily done in an evening if you have some experience crocheting.
They were such a hit with the girls, their moms wanted one, too. You can see what a difference it makes when you change the colors.
This time I did a three-row granny square, and I made six of them. I stitched them together with the yarn needle, and went through the same process as with the children’s hats, except that I added another two rows at the top to allow for a larger head!
Go ahead and have fun with them. They make great gifts.
