Sit'n'Stitch Tuesday: Kitsune Crochet Baby Hat



So, this is the first hat I've made for little Aviva. I didn 't have the right yarn and didn't feel like running out to get more, so my experiment was to double up two strands of DK weight yarn. And I did. :) Next time, I will definitely do it the right way and not be lazy, but it turned out all right either way.

A red foxes ears should be sticking up a little more, so she looks more like Eevie, the Pokemon. Which is fine. ;) So my next fox hat will have the ears up higher!

I made the hat in the 1-5 years size, not the 6 month size, so that it will fit her large ever expanding head longer (though at this point I'm going to make another one.) So what have I learned? Don't be lazy, go buy more yarn. ;) 

Both Stephanie and I are posting our stitching progress weekly, so hopefully I'll have some new torturous creation to put on my little poppet's head.

  4. First of all I have to say that your baby is just precious & I love the hat as well. I was reading your intro and I thought this is a girl after my own heat! We did a ton of the same stuff with our family (I breastfed my babies until they were 19 & 20 mons., we also did cloth diapering - which we are now potty trained in the last month & half yay & we have a family bed as well) & I'm so excited to follow you and find out more. I hope you have a fantastic day & please stop by my blog as well if you get the chance. January T

  6. I don't know what is cuter: your little one or the hat. I have doubled up on a lighter weight yarn with good results too, sometimes it's a great way to get a color mix up when using varigated yarns.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I can't wait to see what else you come up with. :)
