Baby hats in Papa hands...

Hello everyone!

I have a lovely treat to share with you! I just finished two precious newborn hats for my cousin and the baby that will soon be born.

For those of you who crochet I made the basics of the hats based on this simple pattern: here. Though, I didn't complete all the rounds called for and added a bit of my own edging. I created the bear ears by learning how to do a sort of half circle: here. To get the ears size I wanted I used an H hook and completed rounds one to four.  I made them both out of Vanna's Choice yarn.

I'm so happy with how they turned out and I hope the fit is positively precious!

Want to see some pictures? Great! Here you go!

First I put the hats on a large baby doll we have from when my sister and I were young. Also, my wonderful Daddy helped research the average size of a newborns head to try to get the best fit.

Here are the hats on the doll...

Then I asked my wonderful Papa Bear (my Dad) if I could take a few creative shots of his hands holding the hats. He sweetly agreed.

I must say, seeing such sweet little hats in his big manly hands was beautiful. To think that I and each of my siblings were once so small is overwhelming. Time goes by one day at a time.

Here are the creative pictures...

There you have some sweet little newborn hats to "oooo" and "awww" over. Not that I think I'm all that grand, but because little baby hats are just so sweet.

I hope you are having a nice week so far!
