Frozen Princess Anna Inspired Hat Crochet Pattern

What I loved most about Anna was how unique she was, and how she embraced those differences that made her special! Just like Anna, we're all uniquely shaped snowflakes, no two are exactly alike. So never be afraid to flaunt your difference, since they make you the amazing person that you are!

Braids
Taking your orange yarn, cut 3 strands of yarn, making sure every strand is at least 60 inches long. Then make a simple knot into a stitch at the bottom of your hat, on the right hand side (hat facing you).
In the next stitch, knot only 2 strands of yarn. Continue alternating between knotting 2-3 strands of yarn into the next 10 stitches. This will create that thick and luscious Disney princess hair that we all know and love!


Now braid the hair until it measures approx 15 inches in length. Tie a piece of yarn around the bottom of the braid to fasten it off, before trimming the ends of the braid.
Repeat the braid pattern on the left side of the hat (hat facing you), this time making sure to incorporate some white yarn to create Anna's signature platinum blonde streak.

  1. Can you explain rows 13-19. That is hard to understand. The stitches don't add up...or rows

    1. Hello,

      You just alternate between crocheting rows 11 and 12 for rows 13-19. So for row 19, repeat row 11.
      Hope this helps!

  6. I am having a problem understanding how you go from 56 stitches on row 7 to having 50 stitches on row 8 (while increasing every 6 stitches). Others don't seem to have trouble with this so I must be doing something wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Need a picture of the back, or at the very least where you stop crocheting in rounds and start with rows.
