Crochet Baby Hat Free Pattern

Crochet baby hat free pattern

Before I get in too far with this pattern, I have to say, this hat is PERFECT for getting rid of those offs and ends of yarn that you have lying around.  I have a ziplock bag full of odds and ends and this hat (and boots) didn’t even use up the colours that I used.  Not even close to getting rid of those odds and ends!  Maybe I’ll make a bunch more and donate them to the local hospital.

Here it is, the hat to go with the booties!  I can’t believe how cute this is!  Again, it might just be because it is miniature, but still, very cute.  It might also just be it’s size, but this hat is an easy 20 minute project.  I was going to add a pom-pom to this hat, but I was out-voted on the idea, so no pom-pom it is.  If you try this hat, I would love to hear how it worked out for you and see what it looks like!  If you put a pom-pom on it, how did it turn out?
