Yesterday our baby boy gave his first smiles. I was not the lucky recipient but his Daddy was and he got no less than four in a row! I tried for the rest of the day to get my own smile but without any luck. The only smile I did manage to get was this cute little one he did in his sleep whilst I was trying to take pictures of him in a new hat that I made.
I didn’t seem to have a hat that fitted him and feel bad taking him out in the cold without one so I whipped up this little crochet newborn hat with this free pattern by Barbara Summers that I found on the crocknit.com website. Using a front post double crochet stitch it gives the newborn baby hat a nice rib-like texture.
My new favourite yarn at the moment is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I love it! There are so many beautiful colours and it feels so lovely to crochet with.
It’s a great little pattern which stitches up in no time which is great because with a newborn I have ‘no time’!
Anyone else with a newborn out there? If not this would also make a great handmade present for someone.
