My niece is expecting! I couldn't be happier to become a great aunt! Little Bobby should be arriving this April and everyone in our family is so excited. As with most young mothers to be, my niece is already planning on having his newborn pictures taken by a professional. This is such a special event that it is planned out well in advance. In fact, the photographer has everything except the hat! And that brings us to this extra special FREE crochet pattern.
My niece texted me a picture of what she wanted the other day, asking if I could possibly make one for her. Of course I said yes and after several attempts at crocheting a cute little camo infant hat I finally settled on the pattern you see above (my other attempts are in the photo at the bottom of the page).
I liked this one the most because you can't easily see the crochet rows making it look more like camouflage. This however does make the pattern a little more difficult. You really have to pay attention and count the number of rows as you crochet because going back and figuring out where you are is too difficult. The good news though is that you can finish the whole hat pretty fast! Definitely under an hour and it looks great with or without the ears :-)
I look forward to adding a picture of my new great nephew wearing the hat after he is born!
Enjoy and thanks for visiting!
