Made sugar booger more than a dozen hats to keep her little head warm in this nippy weather.Unfortunately they don't stay on for very long before she rips them off her head usually outside right before meeting some nice old woman who will always stop to scold me:
"you really should put a hat on that baby She'll catch a cold you know..." Tongue
So went online to find solution and found balclavas (never get that right Undecided)
But all the patterns I found were knitted. Since I have an agreement with hubby never to pick knitting needles again due to mysterious holes in couch arms   ::)I went on to draft my very first pattern . Woohoo So for those who are still reading this long winded intro I present my crochet version of a balacavla hat!

Wow! My son would love that. He loves hoodie sweatshirts. He wears the hood the whole day when he has them on. If you ever post the pattern,  Grin let us know!

Great idea, and a great way to keep the hat on!  I will have to make some of these for next winter!

Thats really neat! I'd never seen one of these hats before, it's really neat. I'd like to have one for myself, lol.

Your baby is too cute and I just love the hat, I would love a pattern.

Well it wasn't really a pattern more like measuring squirmy baby's head against work in progress but if enough people are interested I am going to work on a bigger version for  my 6 yr old tonight and I'll jot down as I work. Until then i'll give what will probably be vague and confusing instructions  Grin
Measure head from below ear around top of head to below ear on other side.(length)
then measure from just in front of ear to middle bak of head (width)
(confused yet?)

Make rectangle using those measurements then fold in half sl st together (should look like bonnet)

Then measure around face(length)

Make 2 peices of ribbing that length making it as wide as desired.
Fold one of  ribbing strips in half and tack to top and side of bonnet
 Slip St together
Fold other strip and sl st along bottom and of bonnet and your done!

Ok I can barely follow my own instructions  Tongue soooo..... hopefully i will put pics up with pattern for those of us who need more visuals.
