This is a great pattern to make hats for little ones! It is also a perfect hat for newborn photos!
It requires 1-3 balls of extra bulky (size 6) yarn. I use the Bernat Really Big yarn, and I think it would be really sweet with some handspun bulky yarn as well.
I am a mom to 3 wonderful children and pattern designing has helped me to stay at home with them. I love crafts of all sorts but crocheting is my favorite.
