Thank you for the props!  And Onlybluemomma, I'm flattered you'd like to buy some.  I am FLAT OUT trying to get various gifts and projects done for the holidays.  Tongue  I'm considering opening an Etsy boutique...but not before Christmas.  The hat was pretty basic...maybe I can try and give you and Bolshy Walshy a pattern of sorts:

chain 2

6 sc in second chain from hook, join for your foundation row (from now on spiral using a moveable place marker or scrap yarn)

ch 1, 2 sc in every stitch around = 12 sts

*1 sc in 1 st, 2 sc in 2nd st* repeat around = 18 sts

*1 sc in 2 sts, 2 sc in 3rd st* repeat around = 24 sts

*1 sc in 3 sts, 2 sc in 4th st* repeat around = 30

*1 sc in 4 sts, 2 sc in 5th st* repeat around = 36

Continue increasing in this pattern until desired circumference is achieved, then work straight rows.  I measured my daughter's head, measured my gauge on what I had crocheted, and then did a little math to make it fit just right (not too loose so it would stay on).  In other words, say the baby's head is 16".  Your gauge comes out to 7 stitches per 2 inches.  Half of 16" is 8", 8 x 7 = 56.  You'll want to stop increasing near that number.  With the 6 stitch increases, that would be the row you're increasing in the 8th stitch with a total stitch count of 54.

When I got to the top of her ears, I began playing with decorative stitches:

one round of filet:  *sc, ch 1, skip 1, sc*
next round with 3-stitch shells:  no chain, *skip 1 st, 3 sc in 2nd st from hook, skip 1 st, slip stitch in 4th st from hook*, repeat around
I think I did 4 rounds of shells to finish.

Flower was a foundation ring and then five petals made with sc and dc (wanna say it would go something like this:  sc, 3 dc, 1 sc, 1 slip)  I think I did two rows on each petal. 

Sorry for the vagueness, but I learned how to crochet when I was really young by a surrogate grandmother and was taught intuitively, meaning no patterns.  The upside is I make one of a kind things spontaneously.  The downside of this is I'm still a little thrown trying to read crochet patterns today!   Wink

Hope this helps!  Let me know if you make one!

It's so cute. I just love it ... if only I had a baby girl to make it. Sad I'm going to have to find a baby girl so I can have a reason to make it. Great job and super cute!
