Itty Bitty Baby Heads and the Things That Cover Them

Posted on: February 28, 2013

I haven’t made many hats.  Not sure why, I guess most of my time has been spent on bigger projects, and I was focused on them.  I’ve been making a few more hats recently and they are so quick and fun!!  I’ve had several people ask me about my Ninja Turtle Hat, and I’m gearing up to make a red guy this weekend.

I’ve also made an ear warmer and a couple of basic beanies with a flower attached.  When a friend of mine asked me to make one for her baby-to-be I of course said I’d love to!!  But I didn’t just want to make her a normal old baby beanie.  I wanted this new little diva to have options!  I wanted her to be able to match her hat to her outfit!!  So, I sewed a button to the finished hat and made a bunch of flowers with an open center.  They can be popped on and off of the button on the hat to change with her mood.  The possibilities are endless, and I had a rough time stopping at 10 flowers!!  I used Caron Simply Soft, since it’s my favorite, and I just love how it turned out!!

The beanie is from an ADORABLE tutorial over at Repeat Crafter Me.  I followed her directions for the 0-3 month hat, sans bunny extras.  The button is 1″, and how I did the flower follows.  REMEMBER, I’m not a pattern writer, I’m just writing what I do.  These are pretty simple flowers and I’m sure you’ll have no problem.  If you have a flower you already make, I bet you could just do an open center and it would work great.

Interchangeable Flower in 2 colors:  Worsted Weight yarn, H Hook, 1″ button

ch8, sls to first ch to form ring.

Rnd 1*: 12 sc in ring; sls first sc

Rnd 2: ch 2, 2dc, ch2, sls in same st. Ch1, skip next sc, slip in next sc, ch 2, 2dc, ch2, sls, continue around. Sls into beginning sts, finish off. (6 petals)

Rnd 3: Turn your work over and attach different color in FRONT LOOP of skipped stitch (ch1, skip next sc space) of previous row. Ch2, sls in next FRONT LOOP of skipped stich, continue around, join to first st. ch 1, turn (6 ch 2 spaces).

Rnd 4: Slip st in first ch2 sp,*ch2, 3dc, ch 2, sls*. Sls in next ch2 space and repeat between **; join to first stitch. Finish off. (6 petals)

*NOTE: You can add or subtract petals by putting an even number of sc’s in your ring; ie: 16 sc = 8 petals, 20sc = 10 petals, etc.  6 petals was a good size for the Newborn Hat.
