I have several things to show you this week, but none of them are photographed yet! I was having too much fun with my boys at the pumpkin patch and watching the Huskies beat the Beavers this weekend (woo hoo!).
(Sorry, I had to share a few pumpkin patch photos with the grandparents since I never update my personal blog anymore!)
Here's one I did get a chance to snap a photo of, just in time to send off to my new nephew who's coming this Wednesday! I found this pattern over at FaveCrafts and LOVED it! It almost looks knitted because you don't crochet it in the round. I've never done a hat like this before, but it was super fast and easy, and has a really different look than other crocheted hats. Plus, you can switch the color and make this an apple, blueberry, etc. In fact, as soon as I get my hands on some red yarn I am totally making my niece a strawberry hat. SO cute!
The pattern is for 0-3 months, but it would be super easy to make for a larger baby/child. Just increase your initial number of chains, and then make it a wider strip. The top is just kind of figure out as you go anyway, so it would be easy to adjust to a longer, wider strip.
My boys were both "pumpkin" babies (born in October). I wish I'd had this pattern back then! Oh well. They're still my "pumpkin babies!"
