Stash Bustin' Baby Hats

Crocheted with Red Heart "Soft" Yarn
Recently, I've been participating in a knit-a-crochet-a-thon-a-rama-a-go-go with some people in my office complex to make baby hats and booties for Stitches From The Heart. There is a scoring system and judging! The crafter with the highest score will get a $30 gift certificate to the SFTH store, here in Santa Monica. The contest is for the month of April. Judging is on May 1st. This is a major stash bustin' project!

So far, I've made eight baby hats. Most of the hats are crocheted on the fly without a pattern. The pointy-pixie hats are called "Meathead Hats" from the new "Knitalong" book. I used 100% virgin acrylic for all the hats so that they would be baby-proof and washable!

All the hats are adorable, but I especially love the crochet look in a hat.

The pink flowery pattern is especially cute!

So how do I buy one of these? Or a few of these?

Sweet of you to comment, Sheridan! Most of these hats have been donated. I don't knit or crochet commission pieces. Sorry.

I would love your pattern of the little baby hat that comes up to a point. I have 7 kids, 8 grands and 1 great grand daughter. I am busy making baby hats for the great grand and a couple of great nieces. I also make baby hats for the local hospitals.

I just reread your post and ordered the book the pattern is in. Sorry about that! I also ordered several other knitting books. Today I decided to treat myself. One can never have too many books or patterns. I love your blog. Have a wonderful day!
