Made my soon-to-be baby girl a Baby Turban hat. My toddler tried to squeeze it on her own head. So I decided she needed her own hat. I let her pick out the yarn from my stash and last night I made her a McKinley’s Perfect Springtime Hat in purple.
So here’s my review of the patterns.
The Baby Turban Hat was easy enough and it’s a free tutorial. But I started to get confused around the time you start making the fancy rows. It was a new technique for me, so I’m not quite sure if I did it right. I pretended I knew what I was doing and just kept going. It turned out really cute. A bit big for a newborn, but since my kids have big heads it won’t take too long before the baby fits it. 😉
I love it! It was my first project when I found out it was a girl. I love the mustard color, since she already has so many pink hand-me-downs. I want to try the pattern several more times and make a hat for me and my little toddler. I would call it “advanced beginner”.
McKinley’s Perfect Springtime Hat was quicker and really fun. It looks like more work, but it’s sooooo easy. I finished it during an episode of the BBC Sherlock Holmes and the new Dracula series. I may have been distracted, so it could probably be made faster. Haha.
Super fast, super easy. A great beginner project, or mindless crochet for advanced hookers if you want to watch your tv shows. Every one should have this in their library. It’s a free download!
Happy crocheting! Any of these would make wonderful gifts for the little girls in your life. 🙂
