I know I’ve been a little crochet sample crazy lately. But I have actually made some crochet beanies.
On April 11, our newest Grandson Ken arrived about 8 weeks early. So, I was inspired to make some little hats.
Not knowing what size his head was, I made several different ones. And of course, I had to make a couple for my Granddaughter Lisa. I didn’t know her size either, but as it turned out a couple fit her.
Unfortunately, because he was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) they would not allow him to wear anything from outside.
The first one I made was blue. It entailed crocheting in the round and using a couple of different stitches.
Then I made a green one with basically one stitch.
I figured if it was too big the bottom could be folded up.
Then I made a bigger lightweight yellow which is Lisa’s favorite color at the moment.
I thought these last two might fit Lisa so I put a flower on each.
Without upturned brim.
So, I shipped them all off. And here is the real model.
Ken came home this week. I don’t know if they have tried the hats yet, but here is our new bundle of joy. Fortunately, now all the tubes are gone, but he really looks happy.
Here you can see the size differences. It will be interesting to see which one, if any fit him.
