My new baby cloche (that's just a fancy word for a snug-fitting hat) and booties crochet patterns are in the shop! I am completely in love with these little cuties--I've made about 10 of them so far. Both the hat and booties are quick and easy, and they look adorable on any baby girl!
I call them the "Ava" collection in honor of my new little niece. When I saw her sweet round face and kissable lips, I knew these had to be for her. I also have two other adorable Ava's in my life, so this pattern is for all three of you sweeties!
The baby cloche/beanie comes in three sizes - 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. I'm working on toddler and adult sizes, but that will be a separate pattern (it will be a little different). The large rose is included in the hat pattern, and the baby rose pattern is included with the booties.
The slipper pattern is for sizes 0-3 months and 3-6 months.
For a different look, you could also make this hat with interchangeable five or six-petaled flowers. I learned this trick from my creative friend Andrea. It makes one hat so much more versatile! And in honor of my first pattern for sale, I'm going to give you the pattern for this changeable flower (see below, after all the cute example pictures!).
Five or Six-Petal Daisy Flower Crochet Pattern
*Two strands* of worsted weight yarn (I like a cotton or cotton blend yarn, and I use two strands to make the flower more stable)
Size G hook
1. Ch 6. Sl st into 1st ch to form a ring.
2. **Ch 3, 2 tc into ring, ch 3, sl st into ring** 6 times for six-petal (OR only 5 times for five-petal). Fasten off and weave in ends.
For center, choose a button slightly larger than your flower center. I used a fabric-covered button the same color as my hat. Stitch it to your hat. Now you can "button" your choice of flower on to match your little's outfit!
