Crochet Newborn Puff Stitch Beanie

I have only made 3 puff stitch beanies in my (crocheting) life. Okay, I lied. I've only completed 2 hehe. The latest one I made (or started) never got completed. It takes so long to make and then I got distracted with other projects.

I wanted to make another (the 3rd) and decided if I made a smaller one, I'd probably be finish sooner and not get distracted.

I followed the free pattern found here. The pattern is for a slouchy beanie in a woman's size but I just made it smaller.

When starting with the brim, I made it about 13" stretched and then joined with a slip stitch. Going up on the hat, I stopped when it measured 6". Using a yarn needle, I cinched up the top.

I decided to add a cute little flower. I followed the free pattern here. I wanted to be able to clip it on so I attached a clip to the back side instead of attaching it to the actual hat.

I didn't even glue the clip. I put it through a few stitches on the bottom. This will be used as a prop so I'm not concerned about making it secure. Of course if you are making it for a baby to wear, you probably want to sew the flower to the hat securely. 

It's so tiny and darn cute!

And I printed these cute little cards using Microsoft Word.

How cute is this 10 pound newborn?!

Let's face it. Kids things are cute. They're miniature and the kiddos look good modeling anything! Anyone who knows me knows ...
