Title: Little Baby Elf Hat
Post by: jenniferbydesign on December 04, 2010 07:09:34 AM
Yay first completed project post!

So, its definitely not my first completed project or project I've designed myself but it is the first I've ever posted here so that's something to celebrate!

I've seen tons of cute knit baby Elf hats and patterns but when I looked I couldn't find a crochet pattern that was free so I decided to create one myself.  To make it I used Homespun yarn so that it would be really soft. It was my first time using Homespun yarn and I had heard mixed reviews on Homespun yarn but I really liked working with it and when I made the puffball on the end with a little fluffing it became nice and puffy.

Aw!!! Now I must have one for my little angle. She's not here yet, but I have plenty of time on my hands considering I am to do nothing but sit with my feet up. What better way to spend the day.
Your baby is adorable, and I love the hat. I will have to agree with everyone else on this.

I'm glad I could make everyone smile! Thanks for all the compliments. I can take credit for the hat but the adorable little baby is a friend's newborn, she's so cute I did a happy dance when her mom said she would let me use her cute pictures to show off my stuff! Hopefully after the Christmas season slows down I will have a chance to write and share this hat pattern and some of my others!

That's the great thing about the hat design it should be easily adjusted for adult sizes too, you could probably use other types of yarn too, this was just so soft and nice I couldn't resist!  I just had someone ask me to make an adult one for her as a trade for some stuff from her shop so I'll let you know how it goes!
