Baby’s First Hat up to 3 Months
This is Baby’s First Hat for up to 3 months sizes. A great hat with a bit of style designed for a baby. The wonderful idea about this pattern is that there is a size for preemie and newborn. For a baby shower, a mother could be gifted newborn sizes and then us crocheters can make the next size up for the baby to grow into. Everyone knows how fast this age group grows.
I have provided a free tutorial. I had provided a handmade crochet diagram that assisted me in understanding this pattern. I have provided it below so you can save it or even print it if you think you need extra help.
This is a great starter project for new crocheters as well.
Stitch it Forward
Yarnspirations has released their latest Lookbook called Caron, Stitched with Love. The book of free patterns for both knitters and crocheters have one central theme, charity. It focuses on simple projects and some that require a bit of knowledge of crochet. Personally, I love how the Lookbook allows new crocheters to learn new skills but also for the ones who have some skills to go a step further. Not only is this book charity oriented, but it also a great starting point for crocheters and knitters to do something more than practice with stitches. It will allow them to learn, grow and contribute to their own community with the projects they create.
The project above is from this Lookbook. In this article is one specific pattern and I have a tutorial that matches it for those who need an extra helping hand with the instructions and skills needed to complete the project.
