When I saw this pattern I remembered my son had a hat similar when he was a baby and I just had to make it. The pattern was simple enough but did use something called an extended single crochet stitch which I wasn’t familiar with. Once I got the rhythm down I didn’t have any difficulties. The size was supposed to be newborn but I think I crochet a bit tighter than the author so my hat possibly is a bit smaller. I need to get a different model so I can judge the sizing better. Mr. Hugglesworth really enjoyed the hat but Senõr Hoppy wanted ears too. He didn’t realize that he wouldn’t be able to see.
This is my first day! I really wanted to do a 100 day challenge and while losing weight or saving money would be awesome I wanted to start small. I love to crochet and make baby blankets throughout the year. Some I sell, most I donate. I thought newborn hats are simple enough I could do one a day and of course I will be donating them when I’m all done. There are so many patterns to choose and I will do my best to post a link for each pattern so if you liked the hat you can try it yourself.
Today I started with an easy newborn hat that was created for the American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts initiative to raise awareness of heart disease. The hardest part was finding a model for my hat when I was done. I finally found Mr. Hugglesworth and he will be helping me model today and possibly in the future.
Comments or questions are always welcome and I will do my best to respond promptly. Thank you for your support during my hat journey.
