Newborn Earflap Hat with Flower

This past year has been a crazy one filled with new adventures, life changes and one solid and unchanging thing – my crocheting! I have been working on some fun gifts for various friends and family members and this post is sharing one of the easier newborn gifts, an earflap hat that I have grown to love!


This pattern can be worked in any colour combination for both the new little boys and girls coming into your life. To add to the flair of the hat, there is also a fun, and fairly simple, flower pattern to add to the hat as well. This uses basic worsted weight yarn, so you can obtain it pretty much anywhere (Michaels, Walmart, etc). It makes for a great addition to any shower gift.

The pattern is available for free on Ravelry HERE. If there is anyone reading this that hasn’t already signed up for Ravelry, run now and do it! The website is an amazing resource for crocheters everywhere – Filled with great patterns, information about various yarns and fibres, and groups where you can connect with other crafters around the world!

This particular hat is currently travel bound, in the mail, to good friends of my husband and I to celebrate the arrival of their newest little one. Hopefully I will have pictures to follow of it being put to good use!

If anyone out there gives the pattern a try, don’t forget to share your finished pictures on our Facebook page!

Flower Head Band

As we are all travelling and spending time with our loved ones over this holiday season I wanted to share a quick pattern that can be done pretty much anywhere. Due to the simplicity of this, it makes a great travelling project for road trips plus at the end you have a beautiful headband to keep your ears warm in the cold of winter!



This pattern was designed by Edie Eckman and can be found right on the Red Heart website HERE. Its super simple, great for newer crocheters (as long as you’re already able to read and follow a pattern).
