A couple of 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 this easy crochet newborn hat! I highly recommend Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for this hat because of all the great color selection and durability.
You will need to pick six different colors of yarn for this newborn beanie. The Vanna White line has so many unique colors to pick from that it will definitely be an easy decision!
