Free Crochet Pattern - Little Clusters

Good morning all,

Today's pattern is for a sweet little cluster stitch hat. Made as instructed this hat will fit a baby at 26 weeks gestation. It is a simple and easy hat and takes minutes to make. The Little Clusters hat is a  great stashbuster too as it uses very little yarn.

    1. Hi there Bernadette,

      This is actually my page (Myshelle, of MTM), not Clare's but if you are looking for her page, you can find it here:

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Hi Clare, how can I make this pattern for an adult? Regards, Maria

    1. Hi there Maria,

      This page is actually mine, (Myshelle, aka MammaThatMakes) but I'm happy to answer your questions.

      I don't have exact instructions, as I've never done it before, but for an adult size, you would simply add some more increase rounds, until the crow reaches around 7 inches in diameter, then add more round repeats to increase the length to around 8ish inches.

      Hope that helps.
