Big Petals! A crocodile crochet hat for grown ups!

Just wanted to share with you the grown up version of my Little Petals Crocodile Stitch Crochet Hat!  I loved the little one so much that I wondered how it would look for adults!  So here it is, the imaginatively named Big Petals!  I've made a cool weather cloche and a cold weather beret!  Two patterns in one!  What do you think?  Pattern being fine tuned and then will be tested in my pattern testing group on Ravelry - Lolly's Crafty Crochet Pattern Testing.

Little Petals - a crocodile stitch crochet hat for babies!

Introducing Little Petals, a crocodile stitch crochet baby hat in three sizes, 0-3 months, 6 month and 12 months.

The hat works up very quickly and because of the open mesh crocheting will fit baby for several months as he or she grows! It is a light weight hat, more suitable for spring and autumn (and probably summer if you live in a climate like ours in the UK!) There is also a photo tutorial for the crocodile stitch at the end of the pattern for anyone unfamiliar with it.

Update:  After being tested by two Ravelry users, tI am very pleased to announce that the pattern is now available to purchase on Ravelry!
