I absolutely love making baby hats lately--especially ones for my friends' 4 month old son. So far I've made him a football hat and a theta hat. I learned the other day how much his mom loves owls. So of course I immediately thought I should make him one of the cute owl hats I've seen everywhere.
I decided to make Sarah Zimmerman's crochet owl hat because it looked so cute and had excellent directions! (Oh and as a side note, I adore her blog, Repeat Crafter Me.) I really cannot wait to make more of these hats!! I decided to make the 3-6 month size and was very careful about my gauge (I'm usually a tight crocheter). For the eyes I used vintage buttons that my Baba (grandma) had. I love the way the hat came out. It seriously is one of the cutest things I've made!
