Let loose and express yourself by creating a totally unique Freedom hat.
Download the free pattern
Freedom has its name because it’s totally free and provides limitless possibilities. Making a freedom hat is an excellent opportunity for those who want, or need, to break away from strict patterns and get creative. You decide the look, shape, yarn and colors. Any yarn goes, but I think the best results come from bulky-is and fuzzy-ish yarn. Then it’s just a spiral with some decreases as you work upwards. Don’t hesitate to experiment and rip if you need to. Enjoy the freedom!
Sizes and materials
Size: you decide
Material: Whatever you want to use
Crochet hook(s) to match the yarn you choose.
Gauge: depends on the choices you make
Now, remember this is a description rather than a pattern. It demands that you make some decisions and choices on your own. For good crochet technique videos and descriptions I can warmly recommend Lion Brand’s Learning Center on their web site.
Choose your yarn and a crochet hook that fits the yarn. With bulky yarn and a large hook you’ll get faster results. Fuzzy mohair yarn or Icelandic Lopi is always a good choice and this project is just perfect for odds and ends of yarn rests. A little glitter is always a good addition!
