FO Friday: Baby Plaid Trapper Hat in Teal

I just love Whistle and Ivy’s new Baby Plaid Trapper Hat! I made it the day the pattern was published because I knew it was perfect to go with the camping and outdoors themed clothing I had purchased for my nephew’s Christmas gift.

Pattern: Baby Plaid Trapper Hat from Whistle and Ivy

Needles: Size “I” (5.5 mm) crochet hook (Would I use anything but?!)

Yarn: The blue is scrap acrylic. The body of the hat uses my two favorite neutrals: I Love This Yarn Worsted in Linen and Graphite.

Notes: What a fun and quick hat to make! At least it is potentially quick… I waited a month between crocheting and sewing on the buttons and pom-pom.

Speaking of buttons, they are from a thrifted sweater. The sweater was hand knit from a DK self-striping yarn but was not in a fit or style I would wear. But the buttons were great and I’ll use the yarn for hats.

I skipped the ties on the advice of my friend Megan who said they would get in the way and be annoying. And I opted for a yarn instead of fur pom pom because my sister doesn’t love laundry.

Whistle and Ivy is such a great source for awesome free patterns! I loved the recent influx of plaid. It’s such a popular design right now.

Isn’t it crazy to look back and see how much Carver has grown between his Thanksgiving pumpkin hat and Christmas plaid hat?!
