I have been busy making baby shower gifts, lots of hats. Here is the first one
This pumpkin hat is all mine. The hat is a basic DC beanie and I usually use the beginning technique that matches this pattern for my beanies. I finish with 3 rounds of SC instead of the FP/BP edge.
I originally made this little red and white hat to go with the cherries but it looked like a Christmas hat and since it is newborn sized cotton hat for a summer baby I decided to make a flower for it instead. Again, I used this pattern for the body of the hat and I winged it for the flower. You can find flowers all over the web though, amazing ones at Crochet Pattern Central
For this sunhat I used my Sweet Little Sunhat pattern with some variations. I used a J hook and used 6 rounds of DC for the band of the hat. I also only used 3 rows of SC for the floppy brim increasing more frequently so it would curl up.
this technique except I glued two long pieces of yarn to the back of the flower, instead of a barrette so I could tie it to the hat and it would be soft on a little head.
I need to sit down and write out this granny hat pattern, I sat down intending to make another beanie for my daughter who has been begging for a hat. Since it is already in the upper 80's and it is still May I decided to make it more airy. It turned out great, was super simple and didn't use much yarn. I whipped it and the flower out in around an hour or so. Sticking the pigtails through it was Patience's idea.
