Design by Melissa Hassler from Lovable Loops.
This Leprechaun Top Hat crochet pattern is much easier to crochet than it looks. It’s worked in the round from the top down using half double crochet stitches. I love how quickly a crochet piece works up when using half double crochet (hdc). If you don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, you could change the colors and turn this pattern into a snowman top hat.
