Puff Newborn Hat Crochet Pattern
The Puff Newborn Crochet Hat is great for hot days when your baby needs a little air to their head, while still covering it. I have always loved making the puff stitch which is what brought me to make a puff stitch hat, although I didn't want it to be intimidating to newer crocheters, so I made all of the increases with the double crochet stitch.
