I had a request for some patriotic hats for a 3 month old baby boy 4th of July photo shoot, so I got to work on some ideas, this Ole' Red, White and Blue Hat being one of them. This hat is great in any color combination, works great for photo shoots and/or as a baby shower gift. Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Caron's Simply Soft, Caron's Party Yarn, Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton Yarn, Hobby Lobby's Soft Secret, Lion Brand's Wool Ease. You will want a yarn that is soft to the touch for babies soft, sensitive skin, and acrylic or cotton are the best options to avoid allergens so the Wool Ease and the Party Yarn really aren't the best option for babies. I was working multiple projects at once so I am not sure exactly on the yardage but with one 4 oz/203 skein of each color, you will be able to work up 4-5 hats. Time Spent: The newborn size was ready in just under an hour, the 3-6 month size in just about an hour, and the 6-12 month size in just over an hour. If you don't work the striped pattern, you can expect to work up the hats in about half that time.

I can be described as a “craft, coffee and cat addict”. I began my crafting journey more than 10 years ago with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thanks Aunt Arlys!). In 2014, I jumped head first into crocheting and jewelry making, and my blogging journey as EyeLoveKnots, named in honor of family members affected by Retinoblastoma - a cancer of the eye. I currently craft part time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback - hoping to make it to full time soon! I can also be found on, where I have begun a craft directory!
