Make the sweetest gift with this free crochet baby hat pattern using Red Heart Hygge Fur for the warmest, cuddliest hat ever (in 2 sizes).
Wanting a baby hat that’s super cute and cozy? This crochet baby hat pattern is just the thing with its fur yarn and quick construction.
Design Story and Inspiration for this Crochet Baby Hat Pattern
I bought several colors of Red Heart Hygge Fur not really knowing that I wanted to make with them, but I couldn’t resist how soft it is.
I definitely plan on making some stuffed animals, mittens and other items from this yarn, but a hat seemed like the perfect thing!
I know a lot of people are already planning and making for the holidays, and this hat would make a great gift. Super soft and cozy!
About the Yarn
I totally fell in love with the Hygge yarn from Red Heart, and this version of Hygge Fur is also amazing! It’s easier to crochet with than a lot of other fur yarns and it gives amazing results.
This is a bulky yarn (size 5) so it works up quickly and a skein goes a long way. Great for stuffies, hats, mittens and more!
