Help Me Make a Baby Hat

May 17, 2012

A few days ago, I posted a comment on Facebook about how many babies I needed to crochet gifts for this summer.  Well I have yet to make any progress.

Many of you also commented that you needed to create baby items, so I am proposing a crochet-along. Maybe we can help each other and whip up some baby gifts before those babies take their first steps.

In order to ensure that the projects and quick and easy, I am suggesting we pick one of the hats from the newest free crochet eBook—Free Baby Crochet Patterns from Crochet Me: 9 Free Crochet Patterns for Babies.

All three hats are perfect for a beginning crocheter and can be finished easily in a week, but we'll give ourselves a few weeks for those of us with hectic summers.

You can make your hat in cotton for the perfect summer chapeau or perhaps choose a warm superwash wool for this coming winter. And for those of you who love earflap hats, I am already planning a blog to show you how to add earflaps to your hat patterns.

For those of you who don't have a baby to crochet for, feel free to join us and make a hat or two for a local charity. There are always plenty of worthy causes looking for crocheted hats.

Now it is decision time. Which hat would you like to make: the Berry Baby Hat, Goldilocks' Hat, or Baby Bear's Back-Up Hat? Leave your vote in the comments below and invite a friend or two to come join us! I will announce the winner on May 24th.

Best wishes,

Goldilocks is cute, but not exactly a boy's hat. The berry hat or the baby bear can go for either gender. And I love the idea of the pink/red hat with seeds for a strawberry!

Oh my goodness, what a choice. Little round chubby face in a berry baby hat. Yummy!

And the winner is...the Goldilocks hat!

This hat is adorable! And for those of you who are crocheting for little boys, we will talk about working this hat with earflaps instead of the ruffle and flower. So pick your worsted weight yarn. I will post information on the schedule shortly.
