I made this baby hat and booties for my church’s women’s retreat this weekend. My small group put together a basket of goodies for a new mom, and this was my contribution. The booties are my crochet version of a wonderful knit pattern. I don’t like knitting, and I didn’t have alot of time to mess around with trying to figure out how to knit something so small, so I just made up a crochet pattern. I am really pleased with the way they turned out. I have admired these booties SO many times, but never made them because they were in knit. I’m really excited that they worked out, and I plan to make some bigger ones for Luke for the winter. How fun!
The hat is a very basic baby hat with crochet ribbing on the bottom edge. I like that its simple and will match everything. That’s something that I wanted for Luke when he was little enough to need a hat most of the time. I’ll probably make him a bigger one of these for winter, also.
Both the booties and the hat were made with Caron Simply Soft yarn that was left over from the animals I made for the nursery.
