Charming Little Prince Hat
A lot of people don't like to take their babies trick-or-treating because it seems too early. Whether you are or aren't, you can still work up Charming Little Prince Hat for him. Made for 9 or 12 month old babies, this super adorable Halloween crochet pattern could even be used to keep him warm throughout the fall and winter months. I just love the pastel colors and detail around it, even though it's so tiny. Your little one doesn't have little important - he's the next Prince Charming!
