In 2016 I discovered the extreme drop stitch and immediately fell in love. I saw so many possibilities by simply changing the color. I created my first crochet hat pattern using this stitch in 2016: the Frozen Winter (bun) hat. After its’ big success, I continued to make hats with the same stitch, but different themes. So far I’ve created 4 extreme drop stitch hat designs which you can find below. All patterns are available for free here on my website!
