My mom periodically (no pun intended) gives me pictures of crocheted items from magazines, “Just for inspiration,” she claims. This time, she was onto something. That something became the basis for JJCrochet’s newest hat pattern: the Jenny Lee.
The magazine clipping my mom gave me was a Macy’s ad that featured this crocheted hat by Fossil: Cute, right? I liked the hat’s textured detail, button, and flower – what’s not to like?
Over Christmas break, I decided to experiment. I got out the crochet hook and after much squinting at the tiny magazine pic, I came up with the perfect pattern. And I’m not just saying that because I wrote it. It’s quite addicting. The mathematical element works out evenly which causes the hat to fit perfectly. I especially like this crocheted hat because it doesn’t look like your typical double crochet; the puff stitch adds something a little special, don’t you think?
I named this Jenny Lee crochet hat pattern after one of my current college roommates who is sweet and subtle and everything fashionable, just like this hat.
You can purchase this PDF crochet hat pattern for $5 in my Etsy Store or instantly download it from Ravelry. As a special intro, I’m giving away two copies of the crochet pattern via random drawing (woo woo!).
