Free Crochet Pattern | Quick and Simple Chevron Hats | Preemie Through Child Sizing

chevron hat size preemie child free crochet pattern

These quick and simple to crochet chevron hats are my favorite for donating! Scrap yarn makes great stripes, or choose a trendy gray-and-white color scheme. It is easy to make them for special events and themes by just changing up the colors.

A pom pom would be a perfect addition, but check with the organization you are donating to first!
