Sweet Little Newborn Crocheted Sunhat

 When I found this sunhat pattern, I was elated! It was so easy to follow and the hat was adorable. The problem: it's too small. I made it before my daughter was born, so I used a baby doll as a guide (pictured below). It fits my daughter sort of, but not good enough to stay on, and I don't think even a chin strap would help that.


The Pattern: Sweet Little Sunhat found on the blog Hyphenated and Overextended.

My recommendation--use a bigger hook, or add a couple rows if you want this to fit your newborn well. The pattern calls for an H hook. There are instructions for making it larger on the blog. The size I made said "0-3 months." It looks more like a preemie size to me, although it's possible that I crocheted tighter than the pattern's author.

The good news about this project is that my older daughter now has a fun new hat for her baby doll!
