Ladybug Hat



Lady Bug Baby Hat - Crochet
 available in my Etsy Shop soon
 
 
I've only made this in the 0-3 month size.  I haven't tested the larger sizes yet, but I used standard hat increase rows.  I would love to hear how yours turns out. 

Supplies:
I used Hobby Lobby Love That Cotton Soft, Red
and Caron Simply Soft, Black
5mm hook

Darning Needle
2 White buttons
2 Smaller black buttons

Note:  If using heavier yarn, use one pattern smaller.  I start all my rows in the joining stitch, so when you get the end of your row, there should be one stitch left before you join.

Abbreviations:
Ch – chain
Hdc – Half double crochet
Sc – single crochet
Sc dec – single crochet decrease
