Give it a Whirl Hat
The Give it a Whirl Hat pattern was inspired by the knitted Cute Snail Hat by Omura. When I designed this hat, I'd not yet learned to knit, so I resorted to creating my own crochet version to achieve a similar look. The Give it a Whirl hat is incredibly easy and works up quickly, so it's great for batch gifting!
Pattern includes specific instructions to make an adult size hat, as well as information on adjusting for smaller or larger hat size. Keep in mind that adjusting the size will change yarn requirements.
The sample was worked in Bernat Mosaic (now discontinued). A substitute yarn is shown below.
