How to tie crochet baby hats, or openwork miracle
The long-awaited summer has come! And together with him the problem of headdresses for children returned. Panamas for girls are more expensive than a chic beach hat for you. But in any case, the child can not walk with his head uncovered. Only one thing remains: to buy hats, both adults and children. Crochet hats can be knitted by yourself if you have at least a small knitting skill. In fact, it is not difficult at all!
What is needed to crochet children's hats?
In fact, not so much: thread, hook and a little patience. Let's see what threads are needed, and how they differ from the rest of the yarn.
