Couch Craft: Tiny Crochet Hat, Perfect (and Quick!)

Brand new babies are the best. I know one scheduled to arrive in less than a week. Eight months ago I made a pair of too cute pants for this not-yet-newborn. But as his arrival gets closer I couldn't help but make him a little something else.

The little guy is predicted to be a big baby, so I'm crossing my fingers this little crocheted hat fits; don't let the current (doll) model fool you, it has more stretch than seen here. If it doesn't fit, I'll just have to whip up another -- it comes together super fast.

The truth is I fell in love with this yarn when I used it on my Spiral Planter Covers. I've been searching about for a hat pattern to make for myself (I predict I'll want one for upcoming mornings at the school bus stop). I used the last of the yarn I had on this tiny, cabled cap but I will be getting more.

I have the slightest of colds right now so I'm mainlining all the Vitamin C to kick it, because I can't wait to hold this new little man no matter what he's wearing.

It's so adorably tiny! It came together so fast! It has baby cables!

Note

Tiny, quick things are so satisfying. I've also been working up some new pumpkins to add to my collection from last year
