I’ve always loved making baby things. Maybe it’s because they are so tiny and usually quick projects, but it has been awhile since I’ve made any baby hats or booties. So, I created this little Newborn Hat and Booties Crochet Pattern this week and thought that I’d share it with y’all!
I made the hat first and then thought that it needed a matching pair of baby booties. Both are newborn in size.
The Yarn I Used –
I used Hobby Lobby’s Baby Bee Soft and Sleek in the color Bedtime Giggles. It’s a #4 worsted weight yarn. So far, I’ve made 1 pair of booties and 2 hats from just 1 skein and still have a good bit left over. I’m thinking I could get another pair of booties out of it too.
Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek is a big favorite of mine! This Baby Bee feels like the same yarn, just in cute baby colors.
Of course, any worsted #4 yarn will work! As long as you can obtain the correct gauge.
