Crochet Baby Hat


I just finished a crocheted baby hat for a friend who has a new baby girl.


The baby hat crochet pattern is one I've had for years. I can't remember if I found it and shared it with my mom, or if she found it and shared it with me, but it's been a favorite. It's the Stretchy Crochet Hat from Loving Hugs. I'm glad I was able to find the link when I searched Google today because I've had the pattern for so long without the information of where I originally found it. 


Oh, I just remembered! I found the pattern and shared it with my mom. Ah, yes...nice memory. About four years ago, a good friend of mine had her first baby. We visited her, her husband & her new little baby girl in the hospital. They asked us to bring them dinner and a few things they had forgotten, including a hat for the baby. I did a quick pattern search and whipped up a pink hat in a few hours (above). It was a favourite of theirs and fit their little girl for two years (hence the name Stretchy Crochet Hat)...which is why I made one for my little girl a year later, and passed the pattern on to my mom who made another for my little girl (above) and then later one for my little guy. Phew!


Since the one I finished today was white, I wanted to make it a little more exciting, girly, and feminine with a flower embellishment. I used a free flower pattern from JJCrochet. I love how it turned out and hope it gets as much wear as the first one I made four years ago!


This last part is totally unrelated to crochet or hats, but you should take a look at my mom's blog - Jerry&Kay - she made two absolutely adorable little piggy pillows for my kids from a 1967 Simplicity pattern. So cute! I just read her post a minute ago so I'm really excited about them. :-)
