A friend of mine just had a baby boy and I wanted to send something to her. I found this super cute baby cowboy hat pattern** that I just HAD to make. I sized it down to fit a 6 mo old by reducing the number of starting chains and taking out some of the repeat rows. I added a crab-stitch border around the brim in red and a multi-colored chain for a “rope” tie. I am planning on making some cowboy booties to go along, and sew some burp cloths and a blanket to match!
**EDIT: I have removed the link to the baby cowboy hat pattern. It is an archived site. It has been explained to me that the original author removed her post for some reason, which means she doesn't want the pattern floating around everywhere! It can still be found on Ravelry, but I don't want to post it here if the author is not willing to post it herself!
