This pattern is broken into three sections: crown, sides and band. Chain three at beginning of rounds count as double crochet.

This pattern was written for the Made With Love | Crochet Challenge for Warm Up America 2019. Participants are encouraged to use as many colors as they want in any stripe or color block pattern. Because this is the recommendation, there are no instructions for yarn color included in this pattern.

You’re welcome to make them however you like!
