My daughter Emmy asked me to make something special for a precious baby for Christmas. Anytime my kids ask me to make something, I am on board!
This was a quick project. It took less than an hour to make the hat. I already had a flower. Yes, I have a collection of crochet flowers in a variety of shapes, colors, and patterns ready to use.
I made this for a baby girl, but of course, you can make this for a baby boy by changing the color and not adding the flower. I think striped (multiple yarn colors) would be cute for a baby boy too. I love to crochet because of the variety of colors and varied textures of yarn.
The Craft Yarn Council provides a helpful chart for baby head circumferences.
Step 1: Crochet the beanie
Step 2: Crochet the flower

I made the same hat for a friend's baby girl and this time I used a smaller flower (only did the first row of the linked pattern). I also added a button.
Step 3: Attach the flower to the beanie
I left long yarn tails on the flower so I could use a yarn needle and baste the flower on the beanie. You could add a button at the center of the flower as another option but we liked how the pick showed through.
Step 4: Enjoy how cute this looks on a precious baby!
And be sure to snap a lot of cute pictures!
