This Disney's Frozen, Princess Anna inspired crochet hat is easy to make and is a great gift for the holidays or a Frozen birthday!
I found this great Rohirrim Bonnet pattern from Vallieskids and thought it was a great starting point for a Princess Anna Hat. Full credit for the original bonnet goes to the original designer however, I rewrote the pattern to reflect the changes I made. I wanted it to be shorter in the back and longer in the front. I also added more femininity with the shell edging and flower details on the side. I never write down patterns for other people to read, so I hope what I did is clear. If not, please feel free to ask questions.
H(5mm) Hook, worsted weight yarn(Red Heart: Dark Orchid & Blue)
Row 1) ch 61, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn(59)
Row 2-6) ch 2, dc in next dc from the previous row and in each across, ending with your last dc in the top of the ch 2 from the previous row(59)
*Every row will begin and end his way with the last stitch in the top of chain from previous row
Row 7) ch 2, 2dc in next st, dc in each across until second to last stitch-2 dc in second to last, dc in last(61)
Row 8) ch 2, dc in each st across(61)
Row 9) ch 2, 2dc in next st, dc in each across until second to last stitch-2 dc in second to last, dc in last(63)
Row 10-12) ch 2, dc in each st across. Tie off Purple(63)
Row 13,14) ch 2, *skip first st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st(forms an X), repeat from * across to last, dc in last st. Tie off Black(31 X's)
Row 15) ch1, *3dc in next st, sk next st, sc, skip next st, repeat from * Do not tie off blue yet.(16 3dc groups)
*Update: I've had a lot of questions and comments about the stitch count coming out wrong, especially when you get to the X's. I've added photos of the beginning and end of each row to show you how I did it. I'm considering the ch2 at the beginning of each row as the first DC although it isn't included in the stitch count in parenthesis. Rows end with DC into the top of ch2 from previous row.
-Fold bonnet in half and sl st with purple yarn the base of the purple section together, this will form the back of the hat. Weave in ends
-Pick back up the blue yarn, ch1 and sc along the bottom of hat. Tie off and weave in ends.
TIES: Measure six long strands of yarn(approximately 20-22 in), pull halfway through the bottom front of hat, braid and tie knot at end.
FLOWERS: Magic ring, ch2, dc, ch1, sl st, four times, tighten ring forming four petal flower. Leave long string to attach onto hat. Use contrasting yarn, knotted for center of flower.

This pattern was designed for a 4-6 years child but because of the style, one size fits most children. You can make bigger by adding rows to the purple section after row 12.
