I love making crocheted gifts for others. I made this hat and bootie set in newborn size for a friend of mine due next month. The bootie pattern is from the designer Elizabeth Alan here at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-boy-shoes-little-mister-loafers ($5.95).
The beanie pattern is from this website: http://allicrafts.blogspot.com/2012/11/free-pattern-vertical-stripes-beanie.html . This pattern is available for free, however I added a brim to the hat based on this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-newsboy-beanie-little-sport-newsboy-hat .
These were crocheted in Martha Stewart’s wool blend yarn. I purchased the buttons from Jo-Ann’s.
Hopefully the size works out and that these items get some use!
