Baby Hats

At 26 weeks I am getting in the making mood... so far we have a growing collection of very small hats.

Baby hats

The two crocheted ones were actually made during the Christmas holidays. The brimmed one was following a pattern of sorts (this one from ravelry) though I think I used the wrong yarn size/hook size combo because my results look very different from the adorable pictures. And I think I made it shorter because it just seemed to want to go on and on... It may be that I am just a bad pattern-follower. Actually, we can just consider that a fact.

The other crocheted one was from this pattern, most likely with some adjustments as well. And I added the little flower.

Mini hats

These two were made from two old knit shirts of mine. The stripes was an Eddie Bauer long sleeve t - so soft! I actually made three of these from that shirt, two using the bottom hem and one from the sleeves. Pattern is here from SouleMama.

The ruffle cap was from this tutorial on Tao of Craft. I just eyeballed the cut, and for the ruffle I just cut a strip straight across the t-shirt - so it was a big loop - and ruffled that. Then I matched the side seams to the side seams on the hat and sewed it on using a small zigzag stitch so the bottom of the hat would still be stretchy. I have the pieces for another one, a tiny bit bigger, that will have lots of ruffles. Too cute.
