Sometimes, I see baby things and I just have to make them. I saw this little munchkin hat on ravelry and I had to make it for a friend of mine that is having a little boy. It’s so impractical but I love it so much. It would be a perfect newborn picture hat! I’m thinking I should have made the pom pom a bit bigger, but oh well. It’s still ridiculous cute.
And to go with the little hat, I had to make some easy on baby loafers from Two Girls Patterns. It’s not often I see crochet items and think – wow, those are boyish! So this were a definite win. There was a bit of a learning curve for me in crocheting these up – it’s a much tighter weave than I typically do so there were some bumps along the way (and maybe a few bumps in the stitching), but I learned a lot and I think they turned out pretty cute. Who knew you could crochet to look like knitting!
I used Vicki Howell’s new yarn – Sheep(ish) in gun metal(ish) and robin egg(ish). So very soft. Cute little set for a cute little man.
