Now that the cooler weathers are here, I start to pick up my needles and hooks to make warm coordinates for gifts and for immediate use. Baby has already outgrown all last-year's winter items (babies do that) so I have already made her two pairs of mitts and two toques.
I will be posting a new crochet toque pattern (very easy) in the Crochet section - it is not the exact same pattern I follow, but it's very close and easily customizable for those who already know how to crochet.
If you want to "spice it up" a bit, make it in a fruit colour, and then switch to green at the top to look like a tomato or strawberry or what have you. Babies always look good in whimsical hats!
