Basic Spring Beanie & Flower Crochet Pattern

I have a confession to make...
It's taken me a long time to come to terms with my, urmm, addiction, but since I feel so close to all of you I feel It's only right if I tell you that not only am I a Craftaholic,
I'm also a.... Gardenaholic!
Yes I know, the shame of having constant grimy fingernails, a sore back and sweaty palms.
But you know what, it's completely worth it since once Spring comes you're allowed
to explore through your own "Secret Garden". Regrowth is a magical experience, trust me! 
Spring is such a beautiful and special time of the year. This beanie was inspired by that beauty.

  3. Olivia, you have the hat circumference listed as 9.5 inches. Can you please give the correct measurement? I crochet purely by measurement and not age. A normal child's head circumference of this age would be 18-19 inches. So is this hat 19.5 inches?

    1. Hello,
      Whoopsy, I just realized I forgot to add the '1' before the '9.5'... The hat circumference is 19.5 inches.
