Baby hat

Baby hat

This sweet, beginner-friendly hat worked in super-soft alpaca yarn is the perfect gift for a precious newborn baby.

A handmade present is always special, but the scrummy texture of this mini beanie hat gives it the upper hand. The unique texture is achieved by working only into the front loops of some of the double crochet stitches. It's an easy technique to work and you can use the stitch pattern elsewhere to add texture to your crochet fabrics.

YOU WILL NEED

■ Blue Sky Alpacas Royal Petites (100% royal alpaca, 35g/91m), 1 ball of Spanish Leather (1702)

■ A 2.25mm (US B/1) hook
