For the Babies and Kids
#11 Ninja Turtle Beanie
Since the release of the Ninja Turtles movie last year there’s been a resurgence of love for these pizza-eating, crime-busting reptiles. If your little ones love them as much as you did when you were a kid, they’ll be ecstatic with these beanies!
#12 Multi-Strand Bow Hat
This pattern is relatively simple, so it’s great for those of you who are still in the beginning stages of crocheting. Despite that simplicity, though, the mix of colors and the adorable oversized (yet lightweight) bow make this one a real showstopper.
#13 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Christmas is fast approaching, so what better time to welcome dear old Rudolph back into our lives? If you’re as mesmerized by Santa’s little helper as I am, then you’ll be glad to hear that the pattern includes sizes for adults, too.
#14 Fox Hat
This has to be the prettiest fox I’ve ever seen! It must be those eyelashes that make it look so darn cute. I can’t imagine any little boy or girl not loving this handmade adornment keeping them warm and stylish in the winter.
#15 Ribbed Pom Pom Beanie
The second I laid eyes on that giant pom pom I immediately started scanning through my ‘friends with babies’ list so that I’d have an excuse to make this little beauty. This is a good one for you beginners, too, because it’s not too complicated, but comes out looking surprisingly professional!
#16 Double Pom Pom Hat
So what’s better than one massive pom pom? Two pom poms, of course! Double the fun, double the cuteness, and I really love the chunky look, too. This pattern also contains some helpful links to sizing guides so that it’ll fit its lucky recipient perfectly.
#17 Happy Hippo
Apart from the charming little hippo face, what really drew me to this pattern was the easy-to-follow instructions. It’s a great hat to impress with, because, although it may look complicated, you’ll be surprised at just how simple it actually is.
#18 Cat Scoodie
Is it a hoodie? Is it a scarf? It’s both! And it’s genius! This brilliant combo even features little pockets/gloves at the end of the scarf part, so you know that the lucky little one who gets to wear this will be warm and snug.
#19 Lovely Ladybug
If you’re fully immersed in the Christmas spirit and looking for something to do with all your red yarn, then this gorgeous little ladybug will be your saving grace. The clear instructions make it a quick and easy project.
#20 Newborn Bear
It’s easy to get carried away with baby hats since I think we all have that innate desire to dress up our little ones in the cutest way possible. But you don’t always have to take it that far. The simple subtlety of the two little bear ears is just enough to melt your heart. You can move on to some Free Pattern and Instructions: crocheted converse later if you really want to up the cuteness.
