Sweet Baby Boy
Infant Boys Beanie
This sweet and simple newborn hat will work great using any worsted weight yarn. I choose a cotton/acrylic blend for mine. Newborns loose most of their heat from their heads. That is why the hospitals give you those ugly pink and blue striped hats when you have your baby in the hospital. I, for one, hated those hats. I made all my own beanies for my daughter when she was born.
150 yards worsted weight yarn, I prefer cotton or a cotton blend for infant hats
Sample uses Baby Bee Hushabye Solid in Baby Blue, Baby Sage, Chocolate and Apricot Jam
5.5mm (I) hook
3 rounds= 3 ½”
