Cubs Cap

A friend came to me wanting to place an order for a baby hat. One of his friends was having a baby and they are huge Cubs fan so he wanted to give them a little Cubs Cap for their expected baby. How could I say no?

I turned to my favorite CTbL’s Infant Basic Beanie in size 3-6 months. I used Big Twist Value in Royal Blue with a 4.25mm hook. I then used the Spring Training Cap pattern for the brim of the hat. With a little math calculations it was real simple to do. For the big C I used Moogly’s Lowercase Alphabet with RHSS in Cherry Red, Caron One Pound in White, and the 4.25mm hook.

I think it turned out looking like the real thing!!

Daisy Beanie

One of Luke’s cousin’s children is a Daisy Girl Scout. Back in April 2016 cousin E was handed a booklet which contained the instruction for the way each one of J’s petals was to be sewn onto her sash/vest as she received them. She sent me a picture and asked if it was possible to make it as a hat. Challenge accepted!!

I used CTbL’s Toddler & Child Basic Beanie Pattern in size Child. I used RHSS in Royal with a 4.25mm hook. I had a look through my stash and sent pictures of colors that I thought matched the picture she sent me. After a little back and forth (because pictures are never color perfect I find) we finally agreed on each petal color. I ended up using RHSS in Royal, Petal Pink, Hunter Green, Shocking Pink, Dark Orchid, White, Cherry Red, Frosty Green, Bright Yellow, Light Blue, and Pumpkin, and Vanna’s Choice in Pink Poodle.

I made each petal as an oval before sewing each one on. I think it turned out fabulous!! One of the cutest hats I think I’ve ever made.

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!
