I’ve been on a baby-hat making spree lately.  There are lots of babies coming into the world amongst my friends.  This elf-hat pattern is so easy, and looks great no matter what color!  The pattern came from Etsy shop, BeezyMomsCreations, and it was exactly what I was looking for!  The big, fluffy pom-pom on the end really makes it extra special, don’t you think!  It’s the perfect time of year in northwest Montana for staying indoors and crocheting, so more hats are on the way! I can’t wait to see these on the special twins due any day.

Happy February and Happy Stitching!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

And all your future lies beneath your hat.–John Oldham

Just a little crochet “show-and-tell” for a crisp, cold January day!  There have been LOTS of babies arriving in my circle lately, and I’ve been having so much fun whipping up hats for all of them.  There’s  nothing more rewarding than a baby hat…. it comes together quickly and looks so adorable on the recipient. I don’t know if they do it to be polite, but lately my parent-friends have been donning their little ones in my handmade originals.  So sweet!

These two are for sisters Anna and Ruby.  They are as precious as their names.

His-and-her bombers for big sister AnnaLynn and newborn brother Decland.

We’re still waiting for word that the latest boy baby to our school-family will arrive, but when he does, he’ll be sporting the right team colors – blue and green!

I wouldn’t know what to do without all of the generous creativity out on the Internet!  Here are the sources for the patterns I used:
