I set up a practice- taking- pictures- shoot of a baby due any day- (I won't be good enough to actually call it a photo shoot for years) to force me to learn how to use my new camera. The parents of this little guy are doing me a huge favor in letting me play with their newborn when they know they'll be lucky to get any worthwhile prints from the shoot- I really appreciate them for sharing their baby!
I wanted to have a few little props to up the cuteness factor of some of the pictures so I've been crocheting some hats and a cocoon.
The elf hat pattern is here- I simplified a few things and used a half double crochet stitch instead of a full double stitch- so, my version is slightly different and chunkier. The other hats are just half double crochet stitched in a round with extra stitches added in as needed. There are a list of free cute crochet baby hat patterns here. If you want to make some. I found this etsy site if you liked to buy some. Enjoy.
