Primrose Newborn Hat


I have a new pattern for you. I had a lot of fun designing this one. I wanted a hat that when done it would look like a flower laying over the babies head. Sort of how a fairy would look if they had a flower for a hat. The picture I have really does not do it justice, I could not find a good angle to get more petals into the picture. Plus my model decided to grow to fast. Ha by the time I got the picture she was a week past newborn size, so the hat is a little tight. I have the pattern in larger sizes but it is written out differently. I could not get the rounds to line up when writing it out and it still make sense. I will post the larger sizes at a latter date, so keep checking back.

  1. I'm having a very hard time following this pattern. I'm on row 7 and it doesn't seem to be creating petals. Does it take a few more rows to see to his?

    1. once you start on the bpdc it will start coming together. so once you finish with round 7 and 8 you should start to see the petals starting to decrease.

  2. How do you crochet a fpdc & dc in same place?

    1. For a fpdc and a dc in the same st, you will work around the post, then you will make a regular dc in the dc that you just made a fpdc in, and for the dc then fpdc you will make a regular dc, then you will work around the dc at you just put the regular dc in.

      If you message me on facebook or email me I can send you a picture of what the stitches look like.
