Guess what Red Heart friends?!?! I’m expecting my first baby — A BOY — at the end of October and I’ve only just begun making things for him. I really need to get on the ball because he will be here in no time! EEEK!
Now that I know “it” is a “he” I’m going to start whiping things up for sure. I love to make baby hats, especially the ones that are quick and easy but look like they took you weeks to make! ;)
To start, my first of many projects begins with the Puppy Dog Hat. This pattern uses size 3 Anne Geddes Baby Yarn, but I had size 4 Baby Blue in Soft Baby Steps at home that I wanted to use, so I decided to take a chance, use a smaller hook and tighten my gauge. Since I used a size 4 yarn for the hat, I dug through my stash and found some Black and Buff in Super Saver, another size 4 yarn to keep it consistent, for the other pieces of the hat.
The pieces you need to make after you make the hat are: 1 eyepatch, 2 eyes, 1 nose and 2 ears. Sew 1 eye on the eyepatch, then sew the eyepatch on the hat. Sew the rest of the pieces on the hat and there you have it….a super cute puppy dog hat!
I can’t wait to photograph my baby boy wearing this hat and laying down beside my “other” baby, Koozie (my German Shepherd). Boy is she in for a BIG CHANGE! ;)
