Crochet babys hat

This gorgeous little girl is my daughter's sister Elea Sofie. She is always happy just like her sister was at that age and I was lucky enough to be allowed to use her as a model for my baby hat experiments.

I got a lot of Egyptian cotton from a local yarn shop that was closing down. I'm still a crochet novice so I need small projects if I'm to have any hope of finishing. But I needed a little bit more challenge than washcloths so I decided to have a go at baby hats.

I didn't use a pattern to make these so the size was a little bit of a gamble. (not completely true, I did try to follow this tutorial, but for some reason it didn't work for me so i decided to wing it) I got lucky with the first one who was the perfect fit for 4,5 months old Elea. But the sunhat was a little on the small side so that would probably fit a 1-3 months old better. 

I'm attending a summer crafting fair at the end of May and If I'm able to finish a few more of these I'll bring them with me

This hat is adorable. You sound just like me. I love to crochet but not pateint enought to make anything that last longer than an hour to make. I started making wash cloths then booties then hats. I make other things on a whelm. Come check some of my crochet out in my Etsy shop which can be found on my blog. Have a great weekend.
