Crochet Baby Blanket and Hats

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Hello friends and Happy June!  The weather is really crazy here and it feels like winter.  I will be happy when it warms up and summer will finally arrive!  LOL.

I really enjoy crocheting during the long winter months and I made a few baby blankets and hats to share with you.

I made all of these crochet items to donate to our country craft fair our church will be hosting over the weekend.  The crochet/knit group I belong to with our church, is going to have a table set up to sell some items we all made.  I will be busy helping out for the day.  😀




This is a baby blanket and baby hat set I made.



I also made a white baby hat with a small colorful flower attached to the hat.  The pattern for the white baby hat can be found HERE.  The yarn I used for the hat is from Caron Wintuk worsted weight yarn in an off white color.  I'm not sure if this yarn is still available as it was given to me from my mom many years ago.  I used an H or I size US crochet hook.  To make the attached flower the pattern can be found HERE.  The yarn I used for the flower was thin multi colored yarn.  (I'm not sure who makes it since it did not have a label on it).  You can use any colored yarn you like.

The baby blanket I crocheted is a granny square extended and made into a blanket.  To see directions on how to make your own granny square baby blanket you can click HERE.

To make the yellow crochet baby hat you can use the pattern HERE.

The yarn that I used for the blanket and the hat is from Lion Brand Yarn in the color 157 Pastel Yellow.  The crochet hook is US size I.

I have made so many of the crochet granny square baby blankets to donate for my church fall fair and for people in my family having babies.  They are great blankets to use for an infant baby carriage.  

The baby hat is new to me as I just learned how to make them.  My next project I want to learn how to make is crochet baby booties.

I love learning new items to crochet and new crochet stitches.  Have you crocheted anything lately?



Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired some of you to make some crochet baby items.

Enjoy your week and weekend.  Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up and winner of our Giveaway!

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

  1. I like seeing the things you have made Julie, and these baby blankets and hats are beautiful! Making things up for the church sale is a great excuse to keep creating ;)
    I have never made booties either (knitting), or socks, and it's something I always say I'll do "this year". One day! Enjoy your week,
    Wendy

  6. These are all so cute. I especially love the white hat with the colorful flower! It has been crazy weather! We were in New England and it was cold and rainy! I think we're getting very hot weather next week. I'd like a little something in between.

  11. Such cute baby hats! I miss my mom as she crochets hats for miss T. How fun that your church organizes a county fair for your crafts. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

  14. Julie,
    These are beautiful. I have toyed with crocheting, but mostly stick with blankets because they are square. I sure do admire you for tackling these projects and having them turn out so sweet and pretty. What lovely gifts!

  15. Nice work, Julie!
    Caron Wintuk is indeed discontinued, but I did find some for sale by people that are cleaning out their stashes.
    If you've never made booties before, then you've got to check out the "Crossover Baby Booties" (free pattern on Ravelry). It's not your classic bootie style, but they're so easy and quick to make.
    Enjoy your weekend! :)

  16. What beautiful crocheted baby items, Julie! I need to make a blanket for my grand baby that will be born this coming October, and my DIL wants it done in a mint color. I'd better get busy!

  17. Very sweet! How nice to take the time to make such nice things to sell for your church. I used to knit and crochet prayer shawls for a local ministry that were donated to people recovering from major diseases. It is rewarding work.

  20. You always do such a good job. I haven't crocheted in years. My son is making those rubber band bracelets, necklaces, etc., though, and he uses a crochet hook to do it. While not intricate, it is fun. :)

  21. These are so sweet Julie! I hope you get some nice weather soon. It has been a bit crazy here too. Super hot today and then rained really hard in the early evening and then hot again. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.
