Crochet baby hat

Crochet baby hat

Hi friends! I hope you all had a great week and Thanksgiving and that you have enjoyed some quality time with your friends and family! I’ve spend much of my time creating a new pattern for you, and this time I’ve made a crochet baby hat with a cute lamb appliqué! If you have been following my blog, I think you might recognise the face, because it’s the pretty similar to the face I used for Sverre and Solveig.

Many liked those lamb so much that I’ve decided to make other baby stuff with the same design. And who knows, maybe I will make something with a similar look in the future! Go to Facebook and check out the album that I’ve made where I’ve included all the pictures from the lamb that you have made!

I’ve included sizes for 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-12 months and if you need bigger sizes you can just brows the web, because there are so many great standard hat patterns out there! I’ve had testers who been helping me with the sizing, and as long as you use the same type of yarn and hook you should be good to go! I strongly recommend to make a swatch to make sure that the hat fits!

If you do decide to make this baby hat, would be so happy if you show me a picture on Facebook or tag me on Instagram! It is always nice to see your versions! Also if be sure to follow me on Facebook so you don’t miss any of my FREE patterns! I am also active on Instagram where you can see what’s going on behind the scenes!
