Free Crochet Pattern: Organic Cotton Flower Hat

It's been a little chilly around these parts this week {like break out the fleece chilly} and my poor little niece came to visit without any warm clothes.  What's a knitting auntie to do?  Why whip up a quick organic cotton crochet flower hat, of course! {try saying that three times fast}  Off to the stash I went in search of a hook and a skein of soft blue cotton to match her eyes.

{Lucy's blog is beautiful, you really should check it out!}

Sew the flower on snug with a piece of yarn and you're all set!  

These little hats are so quick to work up, I think I'll make a few to sell at the farmer's market.  Maybe even a few without flowers for the little guys too.

I'd love to see what colors you choose, so feel free to leave a link
