This easy baby hat is crocheted from a bulky weight yarn. It’s soft and squishy and you’ll love how fast it works up!

Costume Tip: Turning this hat into a cozy Halloween costume by dressing your tot in a fuzzy fleece sweatsuit. Make a braid or single crochet strip in the hat’s accent color and attach to the seat of baby’s pants.
