Here's a super simple yet great looking little baby hat with ear flaps, that I made to go with my crocheted scallop stitch baby sweater. Though truthfully, I made this hat in newborn size, while the sweater won't be worn for a good few months. So in the car on the way to the hospital, I made another hat, in a different color and a bigger size, to be worn with the sweater. And truthfully these hats are so quick to whip up, giving a few in a few sizes is a great idea.
You can find the pattern for this hat here from allicrafts, with sized up to 12 months, yippee! I used a size H crochet hook and chunky yarn, and the newborn size, fit perfectly, though for a small baby. And of course this would be a great pattern to use for making charity hats, which is on my list of things to do!
I love the braided ties that are included in the original pattern but decided to leave them off for safety reasons with a new born. Can't wait to make a bigger hat though with lots of cute embellishments, coming soon!
