Dandelion Beanie Crochet Pattern

Introducing the Dandelion Beanie Crochet Pattern! This pattern is fully inspired by my daughter, Emma. Think feisty little girl who loves wildflowers and the outdoors. Confession : she’s barely 11 months old when this pattern releases. However, I have chosen to surround her with wildflowers, cacti, horses, and the outdoors from the moment of her birth. Therefore, this beanie is chock full of fun, whimsical, and diverse stitches to create a one-of-a-kind hat suitable for a unique little girl.
