{Crochet Hat Patterns} Free Crochet Brim Hat

Updated on March 3, 2013

Learn to Crochet this Brim hat Pattern

This crochet brim hat pattern was inspired by the Woman's Granny Hat pattern on Suzies Blog.

I already knew how to make a tam and a brim so I just used her Granny hat stitching in the top part right before I made the brim ---
