Crocheted Kids Hat

Good morning!
It is so cold out already here in the desert, that I KNOW it's terribly cold other places. Time to quickly get some warm hats made for kids in your area or to help other charities. I am working on one right now and will post a photo later. I am experimenting with the pattern right now, so it might have some glitches-- just a warning! Give it a try and let me know what you think. Send a photo if you'd like!
