Tiny cupcake hat – Free crochet pattern

May 16, 2013

How to make a tiny cupcake hat.
Inspired by the French version of Innocent’s “The big knit” (in UK and Ireland) or “Das Große Stricken” (Germany)
In France, Innocent collects tiny knitted/crocheted hats to put on their bottles, and for each bottle sold with a hat, they will give 0.20€ to Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly.
