Hats!

Usually, when a new baby arrives in the family, I make a baby blanket.

Unfortunately, I did not have time to do this for the newest arrival.

Fortunately, the mom had a request.  I was texted a picture of a sweet hat with a heart appliqué and a request to make one for Baby J.

Since it was a picture from Etsy, I had to improvise.

I found this sweet looking hat on a Bernat Baby Softee wrapper, searched the site and found the pattern.

I made the body of the hat with a 4.5mm hook and then increased to a 5.5mm for the decorative edging.

Since I was working with DK weight yarn, it was hard to find a good heart appliqué that would be big enough.  Youtube to the rescue!  This tutorial from Crochet Lovers was great!  This is also the site I used to make the ears for my Woodland Cowl.

I also made an Easy Granny Baby Hat.  Very simple and very cute!

I also made a Shell Stitch Beanie by The Dainty Daisy.  Although the hat looks very long and tubular in the picture, it stretches and really shows the stitch pattern well.
