Crochet a toddler girl's winter/spring hat

Crochet a toddler girl's winter/spring hat 

I think I am on a hat and beanie crochet spree this week.  Just done a quick little girl's hat in very light pastel peach colour, which I think would be a delight to wear.  It is nice and light and just right for Perth's current cool weather as we are now into spring.

This is a slight retake of the first toddler hat I made except this time I used different stitch patterns for the side of the hat and had a slight variation to the cluster circle used for the top of hat.  The change of colour also makes it look light and cheery.  Will probably keep this in a stash for gifts.  This size will suit a little girl aged 2 -4 years old.

Items needed:

5mm size (top and side) and 4mm size (brim) crochet hook
8 ply or DK Moda Vera Marvel acrylic yarn, Dye Lot:  1060 782210. (1/2 skein used).
