Miss Priss Hat
The Miss Priss Hat is a cute crocheted cloche inspired by the traditional granny square. Add a flower in contrasting colors to finish off this hat. The pattern includes full instructions for 4 hat sizes including Toddler (ages 1-2), Child (ages 3-7), Preteen (8-13), and Adult (fits average teen or adult). It makes the perfect Spring or Fall accessory, a great “Mommy and Me” set, or even a special chemo cap for someone going through cancer treatments.
This special design was created in April 2008, and it is inspired by my sister who battled cancer. Although she lost her hair, no one noticed her bald scalp while she was wearing one of her many colorful Miss Priss Hats! I decided to share this design to help everyone feel better, no matter what they are going through in life!
