free crochet patterns

I found this free crochet pattern for a Minion hat and just had to make one.  I admit I’ve never seen the movie but they look adorable.

I love the pattern I found but I wanted some blue on mine so I finished it off with 3 more rows of single crochet. 🙂

I used a 5 or an H hook on accident but it worked out nicely.   I used Peaches & Cream Yarn in Floral Bouquet that I picked up at Walmart.  I had bought it for another project but what they hey I had wanted to try to crochet a washcloth and knew I needed 100% cotton so I went ahead and used what I had on hand.  Below is the picture of the one I made.  The pattern gave directions on changing colors so I thought it would be fun to to buy two complimentary colors and crochet them up opposite so you have a nice set.  I will be sure to post when I do.
