Welcome! Newborns in this world. Hope you learn and grow into a respected and loving person and save the world.
It was exciting to know that my customer is a newborn. I started looking for hat patterns for my new customer. Something that increased the epitome of cuteness. And Gnome Hat served the purpose. It looks so cute on newborns. How can I resist to not to make one? The soothing colour combination of blue and brown fur gave me the option to try one for the newborn baby.
I liked the designs mentioned in the Classy Crochet – Elf Pixie Hat. I followed the pattern as it is as the yarn and crochet hook recommendation is similar to my selection of yarn and crochet hook.
Instead of making a buttoned loop, I made chains for tying the knot. I was a sceptic about the loop being tight for the baby so, I preferred strings to tie as per the baby’s convenience. The open self-tying option is better for different head sizes. Fur yarn was just an addition to showcasing that cosy and softie look.
- Height: 7″
- Circumference: 14″
The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
- You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
- You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, tassels etc to give cuteness to the hat.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
