Baby hats

A friend asked me to make hats, booties and lovies for a set of twins she knows. I started with the hats.

I couldn’t find a pattern I liked, so I found some place to start, and from there decided to just wing it. I had to make the crown of both hats at the same time so I would get them identical. The rest is just easy.

Using medium weight yarn and a G (4.5mm) hook.
