Crochet Baby Ribbed Puff Stitch Hat with Earflaps Pattern 0-3 months

Since my grandson has been born I have been obsessed with crocheting for him. 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 infant crochet hats have received. People have just loved to see the wee one all adorned in his crochet outfits. I do believe there is nothing sweeter than a newborn in crocheted items. All cosied up in their prams out for a brisk walk in the fresh air.

This is the next size up in the Puff Stitch ribbed Baby earflap hat pattern.

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

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