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!

Shark Socks

The same time my Aunt M placed the Cowgirl Hat order she also asked for these adorable Shark Socks for a friend’s baby. This pattern includes all sizes from an infant 0-9 months to a men’s 12! So basically all the sizes! It’s only a matter of time before I make a pair for myself heheh

I used RHSS in White and Gray Heather with a 3.75mm hook in the 3-6 month size. Surprise surprise I don’t have any notes about this. I think the only ‘real’ problem I had was that it was difficult to weave in all the ends. But that was probably due to the small size.

They turned out just as cute as the pattern picks! Most definitely need these in my size.

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!!

Zebra Hat

The second gift I made for K was a zebra hat. This one couldn’t have turn out any better! I used RHSS in black, Big Twist Value in white, and Lion Brand Fun Fur in black with 4.0mm and 5.5mm hooks. Naturally for the base hat I used CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie Pattern. Seriously, can’t get enough of it. I used the 0-3 month size. The first two rounds I did in black and the rest alternated with white. I did up to 12 dc rounds, then one hdc round, and finished with one sc round.

I used Adorably Hooked’s Newborn Zebra Hat Pattern for the ears and hair. I found her instructions to be quite easy to follow! I would definitely recommend this pattern to anyone wanting to make a zebra hat 🙂

Little Baby K doesn’t look too thrilled about this hat hahaha
