Jade Toboggan

This Toboggan I'm sure you will find is really simple, easy to make. It also is really cool all the the little details that you can put into this hat. When I made mine I crochet the edge, I made a little pom-pom to go on the top of the hat, and I made braids which is totally optional. I plan on giving this hat to my niece and I'm sure she'll like it. : ) So, enjoy the pattern is listed right below, don't forget to join. Follow me on facebook also.
