St. Patrick's Day ChapeauTop ‘o the mornin’ to ya!
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and my little boy wants to be prepared! As I was reading through Donna’s Dozen: Lucky You creative ideas for St. Patrick’s Day blog, I came across the St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau pattern and questioned how could I make this for a 4 month old baby. I skimmed through the pattern and realized it uses 2 strands of Super Saver yarn for the hat.

Fifteen Shades of Grey Patterns

The color grey was not picked as the “color of the year”, but I think it has surpassed all other colors in the past two years. For instance, it has a book deal, movie deal and most importantly plenty of free patterns on RedHeart.com. I wanted to bring a few together so you could enjoy the beauty of this color and the wide variety of yarns that feature this alluring color. There is something in this list for almost any adult. Whether you need an accessory, garment or something for your home, we have it here. We should embrace the color because it is not going anywhere anytime soon. Enjoy!

Cro-Shayley makes the Cutie Bird Hat

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! ;)
