I am French, et alors! {Crochet}

Thursday, 10 January 2013

I am making the most of the fact that Baby MiH does not have a choice regarding what he wears - here is his latest hat, the froggie hat - the transition before getting his French passport! To be honest I am not sure he really likes it, he knows deep down that this is going to be embarrassing one day... But right now, I think he is the cutest ever. 


This is another pattern from Posh Patterns (the designer behind the  little owl hat) - it is now much easier to work out his size (3-6 months). 

In comparison to the owl hat, this one does not cover the ears as much, and therefore does not end up on his eyes - probably a positive then. However the eyes stick out a bit, and therefore it is a bit harder to make him fit in the baby seat (although it is quite cute how the eyes stick out)! This is a very quick project - finished it within an evening (ie a 3-hour sleep slot). 



Pattern: Baby Froggy Hat by Posh Patterns (bought through ravelry)
Yarn: Lion brand Evergreen Cotton Yarn (in double) and a laceweight green yarn I had in my stash;
Organic cotton yarn (Rowan) in white and Lion brand cotton yarn in Black and Evergreen for the eyes  
Hook size: 5.5 mm hook for the body; 4.5 mm hook for the back and white of the eyes, 5.5 mm for the green (crochet like the body of the hat)



Just in case you think he is always asleep - he is not, took a long walk today to get him there today. 


I am not sure he is impressed.. Oh bless! I am going to love taking these pictures out when he comes back home with his first girlfriend.

  2. SO SO cute!! I don't know why but this reminded me of a story of when my first was about the same age as yours. We just dressed him in onesies and sleepers most of the time, partly because he was so small and that's all we had that fit him, and partly because we weren't going out very much, so why bother? So my MIL was over one day and she says, "don't you have any.....clothes for him?" I can't remember my response but I have a feeling I was probably pretty cheeky. hehe

  5. Love the baby and love the hat - it's fabulous! Later if babyMIH complains about the photos you can always tell him that he could have been dressed as a "Rosbif".

  8. Oh classic! Don't worry, you will have ample opportunity to put him in stuff that he will hate later on and thus giving you loads of 'ammo' for later on...clean your room or I'll post it on facebook...brush your teeth or i'll put it on flickr. You get me?

  11. Now is the best time for hats for him to wear. Once he's able to grasp with his little hands, nothing stays upon his noggin. That is a cute hat and he is precious.

  12. Definitely too cute to resist! Had to laugh at that last pic, though - he already seems to be picturing the embarassing times ahead. ;)

  13. I think it is important to get in the habit of embarrassing one's offspring. It will make them fully rounded human beings. :-)
    He does look so cute in his froggy hat though.

  17. Oh he's adorable and so is the hat. Yes, it won't be long before he lays down the law about what he'll wear. May as well enjoy it while you can!

  18. Ha! The raised eyebrow in that last photos does, indeed, suggest that he has an opinion about modelling his hat. I, for one, think he looks adorable!

  23. This hat is adorable! I just found your blog through Arty and Crafty Little Things and love it. I do a lot of crocheting and it's always nice to find new and really cute inspiration!

  24. What a cute hat... and an even cuter baby! I am feeling inspired to try the pattern -- I have only crocheted blankets and scaRves, never anything that actually needs to fit!
