My husband's cousins keep getting pregnant. It is almost like they don't know what causes it. Right now there are at least three that are pregnant. Like the semi nice person that I am, I have decided to make them something for their new little human. The red and green is some verigated yarn that was hidden in my stash. I used simple stitches( either single crochet or half doubles) and I did a basket weave pattern. I used pipsqueak yarn by bernet to do the border.
The cream is a simple single crochet hat to sc 10, 2xsc round. Then I turned my work, single crocheted to half sc3x in one loop. Then sc the other side, leaving about 7 stitches, turn again, 3xsc I middle of previous 3xsc, keep single crochet, turn. Last round you slst or do finishing round. Whichever works for you. Fasten off, weave ends in. Finish by using pipsqueak as a border. For the inside, FPsc round to make half moon shape. Keep sc to ends, turn, ... ( not all way around). Finish of with slst.
