Free Nelson Mandela

The Name

Free Nelson Mandela by The Specials

Ah! The good ol’ days. The colors of the hat forced me to find a name that would do the hat justice. The colors of this skully remind me of Africa. A little research revealed these are the colors of pan-African flag and Black liberation. Who better to represent Black liberation than Nelson?

The Hat

Dimensions: Child, 18-20 inch circumference

Freelanced down to final increase, then looked up general size guidelines to determine amount let to be crocheted.

Double crochet rounds in three colors.
