Deer Hat

The second item in this order I had was for a deer hat. I’ve made them in the past so this would be a piece of cake! I used CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie pattern in size 0-3 months. For all the deer embellishments I used Repeat Crafter Me’s Rudolph the Reindeer Hat pattern. I used RHSS in Buff, Cafe Latte, and Coffee. I used a 4.25mm hook for the beanie, 5.5mm for the antlers, 3.75mm and 5mm for the ears.

I did not stuff the mini antler as I felt it didn’t need it. After stuffing the main antler I folded and sewed the bottom closed before sewing onto the hat. Turned out perfect!

Baby Bear Beanie

These next couple of post will be about a custom order that I received while at a baby shower!! The first item I was asked to make was a baby bear beanie.

As per usual I used CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie pattern in size 0-3 months. I also used Erban Studio’s Just Bear Ears pattern for the ears. I first used this pattern back in 2014 when making a bear beanie for a new baby cousin. It worked so perfectly the first time that I knew I would use it again this second time.

For the beanie I used RHSS in Coffee with a 4.0mm hook for the beanie and a 5.0mm hook for the ears. I also double stranded the ears to make them more sturdy. Perfect every time!

Batchildren Hats

Way back in 2014 I had made my cousin C a pink Batgirl hat for his baby girl M. In 2015 he had his second child so I made an updated Batgirl and a new Batman hats for M and new baby W.

The new Batgirl needed to be done in a bigger size, obviously, and guess what was released between making the first one and this one?? CTbL’s Toddler and Child Basic Beanie!! I used RHSS in Black and a 4.25mm hook for this one in the Preschooler size. I made this one a little big on purpose so that she would have plenty of growing space. I also made my own ears for this one and I’ll gladly share! I Chained 10 and did 9 sc for three rows. 8 sc for three rows. 7 sc for two rows. Decrease every row til 1 sc. Sc around outside. Then make sure you make a second one! The braids for this hat were 36 inches long.

For the Batman hat I used CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie in 0-3 months. I also used RHSS in black and 4.0mm hook. I made slightly smaller ears by Chaining 9 and doing 8 sc for two rows. 7 sc for three rows. Decrease every row til 1 sc. Sc around outside. Again, make sure you make two! The braids for this hat were 34 inches.

Both Logos were made using Louie’s Loops’s Crocheted Batman Logo Pattern and RHSS in Black. This logo was so much easier to do than the previous logo I made. The background logos were made with corresponding colors of RHSS in Pretty n Pink and Bright Yellow. Definitely using Louie’s pattern whenever I need another Batman Logo!

Striped Mustard Beanie

Also in November 2015 I made another hat and mitten set for another cousin’s second baby! So many babies at one time! 2017 hasn’t been any better haha. I wanted to go for something simple and classic for this one. To me nothing fits that better than black and white stripes. But I needed a little color and it needed to be gender neutral. I saw this mustard color and fell in love. Sold!!

I used CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie in size 0-3 months using Big Twists Value in White, RHSS in black, and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Mustard with a 4.0mm hook. I just alternated row colors between black and white and did the last row in mustard. It’s at this point that I realized the hat wasn’t finished and needed a little some extra. GIANT POMPOM!! Amazing!! I think I need to make one for myself!

Hungry Caterpillar Hat

In November 2015 I made my cousin A a hat and mitten set for her second child. I swear I make items that are not baby related! I made her a couple hats a couple years previously for her first child and wanted something a little different for this guy. So he got a Hungry Caterpillar Hat. It’s so cute!

For the base of the hat I used (can you guess?) CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie size 0-3 months in Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet with a 4.0mm hook. Perfect! For the eyes, nose, and antennas I used Hand Me Down Hobby’s Hungry Caterpillar Baby Hat Pattern. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Duckie and Kelly Green and RHSS in Dark Orchid. Absolutely perfect!! I did not have any issues reading the pattern. Definitely will be checking out some of her other patterns and I recommend you do as well!!
