Crochet baby hats are SO much fun to make. This is a simple crochet baby hat pattern with a flower and is perfect for a beginner.
I wish I knew how to crochet when the boys were little, I could have made them some cute baby hats. Maybe I will have to make them some fun ones to wear this winter.
I have never made a hat before so I thought I would start simple and small with this newborn crochet hat.
Someone I know is having a little one soon but she doesn’t know if the baby is a boy or girl. So I decided to whip up a crochet baby hat for a girl.
I used Caron Simple Soft yarn for the baby hat pattern. It is nice and soft, perfect for little one’s heads.
