Happy Birthday, Baby!
My nephew recently celebrated his 1st birthday. This little bundle was a surprise to the whole family, coming 10 years behind his older brother! He has been a blessing to the whole family too - one more grandson for my parents to enjoy, a completion of the family my sister always wanted, and the 3rd baby I'd love to have had if not for my terrible pregnancies! I have the pleasure of taking care of him while my sister is working, and as the typical fiber lover I had to make a few things for his big day!
The first is the Child's Striped Cap from Hooked on Crochet. I modified it to have only one stripe set.
The second is another Dino Hat. Again, there's no real pattern for the hat, but the dinosaur appliqué pattern is from Crochetville. My sister has informed me that he'll be sporting one or both on their trip overseas this winter. She said he'd be easy to spot with his little red head bobbing through the crowds in Rome!
