I completed another baby hat recently.... a lil' monster hat! This one is going to my lovely friend Stephanie (yes another Stephanie) who is due this month. She doesn't yet know if it is a boy or a girl but I think the lil' monster will work for either!
I used leftover Loops and Threads Silky Soft Solids yarn with a 5.0 mm hook to create this hat. I love how soft this yarn is, perfect for baby items!
I just made the pattern up as I went along.... taking elements from other patterns that I liked. I love the big eyes on the top of the head, the snaggle tooth, and the braided ear flaps. (An element from the baby monkey hat that I loved!)
I think I may need to write this pattern down so I can make it again. :)
A bonus with this hat - it was small enough to send regular mail and so I didn't have to pay outrageous parcel shipping fees to send it across the country!
