What do you do when you are waiting for a new baby to make her appearance? The showers are over, the due date is past, everything needed to welcome your baby is in place, but she still isn't coming? Well, what I do is crochet!
When Alicia had her first baby, she was early, but I still spent a lot of time waiting while her son was being born. So, I crocheted little booties (not very successfully) and little hats (more successful) for him. So, this time, while waiting for Sofia to make her appearance, I decided to make her some little hats and headbands. I may attempt booties again, we shall see.
I found a cute pattern on Kelley's Yarns that was so simple, and mostly double crochet. The pattern is called Lickity Split Crocheted Newborn Hats. Alicia and I picked out a nice pink variegated yarn and a big flower to decorate it with. (We used Lion's Brand, it is so nice.) This little cap worked up in about half and hour or less and was super easy. I had plenty of yarn in one skein to make some headbands with crochet flowers (a latter post) and another hat for Lindsey's baby. So, we decided to make a little video that shows the simple double crochet that creates this hat! You can check out our YouTube channel (3 Winks Design) here and subscribe and watch all of our videos whenever you want to do that! (Our famous Hot Cocoa Bomb video is on there, and this is a great time of year to start making those as holiday gifts.)
