This easy crochet newborn hat would make a perfect gift for a baby shower and works up fast for those last minute gifts!
A couple weeks ago I ended up at the craft store. It was really weird how my truck just drove me that way and I truly didn’t have any choice in the matter! Happens all the time right? 😉
I ended up buying some great earthy toned colors to use for my easy crochet newborn hat! I highly recommend Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for this hat because of all the great color selection and durability.
SIMPLE STRIPES & LINES
Lately I have been loving simple stripes and lines so I decided to create a pattern in that essence in the form of an easy newborn crochet hat! Plus, I am always looking for an excuse to pick up a crochet hook! Right?
