As I watch my daughter sleep in her little chair I think of all the adorable hats and hoods I've already put her in at only three months old. Between Halloween and Christmas pictures and everyday fleece outfits, there are just too many to choose from.

Of course, they're all just as cute as the next one, but I very much enjoy the crochet baby hat patterns featured in this beautiful collection. I'm especially loving owls for her so when I see the "hoot" hats I just have to giggle to myself. 

Crochet baby hats look cute on boys and girls and allow you to get very creative with them. Whether they have a long tail to them or pom poms on the top, you can design them in any fashion using just the right crochet stitches.

I was watching the video by Mikey making the baby hat with the slightly variegated burgundy yarn. In the future, Mikey, could you please move the second hat from behind your hands and to the side as you video as it makes it difficult to see what you are doing. Thank you Lois G
