I love making hats.
Following this newborn elf hat pattern from B. Hooked Crochet, I made one for my third-grand-son-soon-to-be-born: Lucas Georges.
I made the newborn version in a single color: ‘oatmeal #400’ from Lion Brand, using a 5.5 mm hook. It was quickly done … the technique is well explained on the video tutorial and it’s just a question of alternating DC and SC for 43 rows, starting from the bottom to the pompom. As I was doing mine with a leftover of yarn, I reached 24 rows.
