Newborn Hat and Booties Free Crochet Pattern
I recently got a commission for a baby hat and booty set for their family that were having a baby. I got to work on it and created this pattern. It was quite fun to add a little texture to that hat and since I used thicker yarn that my previous booties pattern I had to adjust it and create a pattern that would fit a newborn baby.

I had a great time creating this pattern and it felt great being able to create this new pattern to share!
