Newborn Puff Stitch Crochet Baby Hat 
We Live in Scotland and much as it is beautiful it is freezing. Having a crochet hat is mandatory headwear.

I was surprised by the reception these baby crochet hats with earflaps have received. People have just loved to see the wee one all adorned in his crochet outfits. Topped with the ribbed crochet earflap hat. 

I do believe there is nothing sweeter than a newborn in crocheted items. All cozied up in their prams out for a brisk walk in the fresh air. Over the years I have made several crochet patterns for hats with earflaps.

I have recently welcomed a little grandson into the world who has blown every sizing chart I had out of the water!

Over the years most of the Baby Crochet Hats I have designed and crocheted are all rather girly, so It was lovely to be crocheting for a boy, and making little crochet hats for a boy became my main focus over the first winter months. But I am so surprised at the number of people looking for a crochet hat with earflaps for girls and they choose this one. 

So I have written some new newborn baby infant crochet hat patterns and released them on the website for FREE, but you can also
