This multi-size pattern is for a quick-to-work crochet bandana hat (sizes baby to adult). It is worked from the crown, in one piece with no seaming and has a shaped neck-flap to protect sensitive skin from the sun.
The recommended yarn is double knit (8-ply) cotton mixes but other yarns may be used to give different textures (less than 300m for largest size).
Colour changes are optional. You will also need a 3.50mm hook (or appropriate size for yarn chosen) and a needle for neatening ends.
This pattern is written in UK terms with US equivalents where applicable.
