Simple and cute
Thank you randa!
This is really easy but it’s so adorable. Plus since it’s such a small project this was perfect for me to learn the fdc stitch with. Thank you for all the amazing (and free) patterns.
😀 Thank you Karla! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

😀 Thank you Lee Ann!
Thanks so much for sharing this adorable quick and simple baby hat. Love it!! I make hats that are gifted for the newborns at a local hospital and have made more than a dozen of these so far. Will send you a picture soon. They’ve been so much fun to make!!
Thanks again, Teresa
😀 I’m so glad you like it Teresa! Thank you!
Just made this… really quick and simple and looks great… but I prefer it inside out… thank you ?❤️
Also the first time I’ve ever used fdc x
I’m glad you gave it a try! I hope you enjoyed it!
Well that works too! 😀 Thank you Pennie!
I found one if your patterns late last night that had a chart for head sizes in it and directions for a beanie that had a z stitch at the bottom. I thought I saved it in my Ravelry account and it’s not their either. Apparently, I backed out if the webpage too far and I am unable to find it on my phone again. Can you please send me a link so I can finish the beanie I am on and make some more? Please and thank you!
I’m sorry Dawn, I don’t think that was one of mine!
Thank you! I’ll keep looking, it definitely linked to your moogly blog videos. Maybe I’ll just wing it I’m at the end anyway. 🙂
