Simple Baby Hat

We're still waiting for Baby Solo, so I occupied myself this morning by making this simple baby hat. My wonderful husband took the baby for a walk while I ran to the fabric store and picked up this soft flannel. I intended to use the pattern from Gifts for Baby (the book I talked about in the last post), but who has time to make a special trip to enlarge a pattern at Kinkos? Anyway, I always put the original in the wrong place when I have to enlarge something and I ended up spending an annoying amount of money on wasted paper. So I just dug out one of Ari's old hats, undid the knot and traced it, careful to allow for the seam. I admit that my hem was a little messy, so I folded it under and hemmed it again instead of having a brim. I don't think Solo will mind.

Don't forget that the Craft Hope project this time is baby hats, booties, and blankets for India. We have until July 25th.

  1. Cute hat! I'm sure Baby Solo will love it! I am just about done with a yellow blanket that I am crocheting for Craft Hope. Mom gave me a super easy free pattern on the Lion Brand website Pattern#: 7045ADLion Brand Cupcake. It's all double crochets around a square.
