Free Crochet Cap Pattern
This free crochet cap pattern showcases a popular classic. And it just so happens that the style is making a comeback.
Mind you, it can be a little tricky working out the exact pattern, but the result is definitely work putting in a bit more effort.Materials

- crochet hook - size G
raised dc - yarn over, insert hook around the bar of the next dc (see Figure 1 below) and draw loop through, yarn over and complete a dc
