I got this feeling down in my bones when I heard that Trolls Holiday was coming. Now it’s out and we’ve seen it 500 times. My kiddos LOVE the original Trolls movie and who can blame them? Fun music, vibrant colors, and a weird Troll Llama that um, produces cupcakes. Should I even mention Justin Timberlake? Moving on.
I originally made hats for Satin and Chenille, but my son wanted Branch too. I chose the happy Branch colors even though I’m partial to the sarcastic survivalist myself. He’s like to Troll version of Eeyore with a modern sarcastic twist. Definitely speaks to me.
Here’s your free pattern:
Trolls Hat Crochet Pattern

3 sizes in hats toddler to youth. Ears are regular or small.

Note about hat rounds: Keep your seam minimally visible by starting in the stitch after the chain, essentially skipping the first stitch and stitching into the slst at the end of the row. Join in beginning stitch as usual.
