Help Me Make a Baby Hat

A few days ago, I posted a comment on Facebook about how many babies I needed to crochet gifts for this summer.  Well I have yet to make any progress.

Many of you also commented that you needed to create baby items, so I am proposing a crochet-along. Maybe we can help each other and whip up some baby gifts before those babies take their first steps.

In order to ensure that the projects and quick and easy, I am suggesting we pick one of the hats from the newest free crochet eBook—Free Baby Crochet Patterns from Crochet Me: 9 Free Crochet Patterns for Babies.

All three hats are perfect for a beginning crocheter and can be finished easily in a week, but we'll give ourselves a few weeks for those of us with hectic summers.

You can make your hat in cotton for the perfect summer chapeau or perhaps choose a warm superwash wool for this coming winter. And for those of you who love earflap hats, I am already planning a blog to show you how to add earflaps to your hat patterns.

For those of you who don't have a baby to crochet for, feel free to join us and make a hat or two for a local charity. There are always plenty of worthy causes looking for crocheted hats.

Now it is decision time. Which hat would you like to make: the Berry Baby Hat, Goldilocks' Hat, or Baby Bear's Back-Up Hat? Leave your vote in the comments below and invite a friend or two to come join us! I will announce the winner on May 24th.

Best wishes,
