Crocheted Newsboy Hats

 I don't know what the weather has been like for you, but it is getting cold here. We had our first snow last weekend and we have to scrape ice off the windows of the cars in the morning. That means that it is time to get out the warm winter clothes. My favorite part of this is making hats for my kids.

Usually I just find free patterns on the internet or make it up as I go, but I found a really cute newsboy hat pattern on Etsy that I just had to try.
 I love that the pattern came with all different sizes. I made a toddler sized one for my 18- month old, but I forgot that he has such a big head, so it is a little tight. I love how it turned out though and I think he looks so cute in it.
 Those big hazel eyes and pouty lip get me every time. I love this kid.

Now sister had to have one too, so I let her pick out her own yarn color at the store. She went with this spring ombre yarn, that I wasn't a huge fan of (I have always liked solids better than multi-colored, you never know how the color pattern is going to turn out), but I think it turned out really cute.

I left off the band above the brim on hers and added some crocheted flowers instead. 

Now were ready for the cold, at least on the outside. I still just want to curl up under a blanket with some hot cocoa, but the kids are excited to play in the snow.
