“Frozen” Inspired Crochet Ana Hat with Braid – FREE Pattern
Posted: Nov 10, 2016
I made this "Ana" Hat with Braid for my one and only granddaughter Harper for my planning party Disney Theme. I love the colors and she looks so cute in it! She loved wearing the hat until her twin brother decided to pull her braids.The hat was inspired by the popular Disney movie "Frozen". Harper may only be a year old, but she loves her Disney princesses.
I used the basic hat pattern from Ravelry by Christins from My Sweet Potato 3, I just modified the last 3 rows. I made the hat 12 months size to fit up to 19? head circumference, but you can make it any size you want.
The braids are about 1 foot each. You can make them any length you prefer.
Below are instructions for the last 3 rounds of the hat, the flower with leaves, and the braid. You can use your favorite hat pattern or download the FREE pattern from Ravelry.

Next 2 rounds – ch 2 (counts as first sc) sc in each st and each ch 1 space you made in the previous round. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Cluster: ch 2, hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc (7 sts in cl), sl, repeat 4 more times to end up with 5 clusters and sl between clusters.
Adjust magic circle smaller as you work clusters. When you’ve finished last cluster pull string of magic circle tight to make flower, petals should be close together. Fasten off leaving 6? tail for sewing.
