Brownie Knits Wednesday: Flowers of Spring Hat Spotlight

The Brownie Knits Flowers of Spring Hat pattern was released in March of 2010, but it is still SO popular and is a timeless piece. The original inspiration was the promise of spring and color after a cold winter. The pattern includes sizes from newborn to adult large. You can arrange the crocheted flowers and leaves on the knitted hat in whatever arrangement you prefer. This can mean one flower or a dozen...totally up to you! My favorite has become what I call the "flower bunch" arrangement. I just had to get pictures of that style taken. (Isn't she adorable, too?)
