Crocheted Hat for 3 year old

DSC_2320 baby hat_520x346
One of my husband’s collegue order this hat for her niece. Same age as Tasneem with 19” head circumference. She wanted her niece to wear this for their trip to Taiwan next month. It will be chilly there although it is just spring time.
So, I suggested using cotton blended yarn because it has acrylic too, which will give warmth during their stay there. This hat has brim to protect against sun rays. It is also suitable to be worn in Malaysia.

I inserted ribbons and embellish with simple flowers using Nona acrylic yarns.

My customer saw the pictures of previous cardigans and after seeing the pictures of baby hats that I make on Cotton House Store facebook, she wanted to order a full set for her daughter.
So, this is it.

I used ladybug white color buttons to embellish the shoes.

The sizes for her order is for 6-12 months old. So, the finished sizes for the cardigan is 22”, shoes 4” and baby hat 16-17”.
I am glad that my customer is happy with the results.

Crocheted Baby Hat Again with Brim

I never use beanie or baby hat that was given as gift for my daughter to wear. The reason is that whenever she wears it, it covers her eyes. So, I am afraid that it will also covers her nose as well.
So, I make something more useful. Making baby hat with brim, to protect from the sun rays. Whenever we goes out, then, she will have protection against the sun. We do not have to open umbrella which is tedious to bring (if it just hot, no rain).
This time, I used cotton blended yarn white with salmon colors. I use 5mm crochet hook. The finished sizes is 15”-16”. Why I chose these colors, simple. Easy to match with whatever colors that are in her wardrobe.
I made another one too for her my niece Hamnah. Same age as my daughter.

Baby Hat

Let me just put what I have crocheted these past months. It did not mean that I did not do anything for my hobby, but there weren’t time for me to update this blog. Really, my second daughter needed me to always carry her whenever she is awake.
So, right now I am going to update whatever my creations for the last few months.
Tasneem’s hat, made using 100% Nona Acrylic (just want to try out the from the Japanese pattern book). The hook sizes state 5, but at that time I was not sure is that 5mm or just size 5 in Japan. But, unfortunately it is not 5mm as I was expected, it is size 5. So, I have to googled out to find what is the equivalent size for 5, it is actually 3.4mm, but I subsitute it with 3.5mm. Well, it turns out well and fits my 3 year plus daughter with 19” hat circumference.

This is my second daughter, Humayra. She loves to be cuddled. I made this using 100% acrylic yarn using 5mm hook. But, this was just for trial. Looks, how many colors are there in the hat. I wanted to finish up any leftover yarns. So, that I can fill it up with other yarns that I bought. Hehe.
The pattern for the hat is from the cocoon baby hat pattern. What I did is just make the brim with sc all around the hat for 4 times and made the ruffles edging using shell stitches.
I ended up adorned both hats using ribbons. Easy to insert it using very large needles and no sewing needed.
