The Crochet Hugs and Kisses Baby Beanies are designed to pair with the Hugs and Kisses Stitching concepts by Jeanne Steinhilber.
The Hugs and Kisses Band really lends itself to unique colour play. The pattern is written for the Pink Version in changing the colours. You could do the band a solid colour or even do the entire hat in one colour and let the light make the texture pop off. The aqua version changes colour on the single round before and after the popcorn.
I felt this design is not ideal for preemie size due to the texture. With my sponsorship with Yarnspirations, I cross-referenced the Teeny Weeny Baby Caps, (posted below) for sizing and design consideration.
Have fun with colour play with the Hugs and Kisses Stitching Texture. Looks great in colours and solids.

Original Hugs and Kisses Blanket
A brand new granddaughter is arriving soon, so that means a brand new baby blanket in honour of her. This crochet project features a series of cross stitches and bobbles, or X’s & O’s, so that is how this became the Hugs & Kisses Baby Blanket.
I used the new Caron Baby Cakes in Dreamy Rose for this, but feel free to substitute regular Caron Cakes or any worsted weight yarn of your choice.
