Mini Top Hat Crochet Pattern
I am loving this crochet Mini Top Hat! It may look very little right now, but I have big plans for this little, insignificant pattern. It will be featured in a few crochet patterns to come to spice things up a bit. What do you think it will be used for?
Use it as a doll’s hat or on a stuffed animal, or as a decoration added to a wreath or another project. Once you crochet a mini top hat and play around with it I'm sure you’ll come up with lots of fun reasons to make more!
