Cro-Shayley makes the Cutie Bird Hat

Cutie Blue Bird HatA friend of mine is having a little girl in March and her nursery theme is owls. I found Red Heart’s Cutie Blue Bird Hat pattern and thought what a perfect gift it would be! Maybe they can use this for some “cutie” newborn pictures.

I used Super Saver Orchid for the hat, Baby Pink for the feathers, Bright Yellow for the nose and White and Delft Blue for the eyes.

See the pictures below of my progress. If you’re making a baby hat with earflaps for the first time, this pattern is a good one to use. It’s quick with easy steps….my kind of project! ;)

Here is the hat before making the earflaps:

Here is the hat with the right earflap complete:

and the left earflap complete:

Then the edging which includes the long straps:

I made the 2 white circles for the eyes, but for the “iris/pupil” part of the eyes, this pattern uses buttons. I didn’t have any cute ones I wanted to use in my sewing basket so I decided to crochet 2 circles with Super Saver Delft Blue.

If you want to do this as well instead of using buttons, here are the steps I used:
Make an adjustable ring, ch 1 then work 10 sc in the ring and join with a slip st. Pull gently on tail to tighten ring. Then sew these onto the white circles.

Then I made the 3 feathers and nose:

Then I took the eyes, feathers and nose and sewed them onto the hat. And there you have it….a Cutie Bird Hat!

    I ave been knitting & crocheting for some 80 years. Being in a state of abject senility and taught the
    art of k & c in the early 20’s, I would love to make this hat, however, I need the pattern written out.
    Is this possible?

    Thank you

    The hat is adorable.I think I’ll be making quite a few of these both for my grandchildren and also for charity.

    I am interested in the pattern, but where I’m a novice to using the computer I’d like to get the pattern as I’ve saved others but haven’t got them printed and not sure if I’ve even saved them properly
