Little boy themed pattern review. 

So many baby boys in my family back home in Pennsylvania. I had to make more hats for little Liam back home.  I decided to go with my favorite color combo for boys to make him a few hats to grow into. 

 
The owl design is called Oh Boy Oh Boy Owl and is designed by Cre8tion Crochet.  This free pattern can be found HERE

   I love how it worked up. The ears bend on their own, the eyes just make his owl face light right up.  I had no issues working this hat up and I love how the instructions included how to carry out the color changes. 

 The Beret hat to the right you have seen before!  

It’s a Posh Pooch design!  Called Strawberry Shortcake Beret. (For Christmas).  This FREE pattern can be found HERE. 

     I knew the same three cute boy colors would be perfect for this hat.  I made it for a toddler so that Liam can wear it once he outgrows his Owl hat.   The review for this hat can be found HERE

It’s obvious who this hat is for!!!! I’ve been on the hunt for newborn size hats for baby Liam again. This time I wanted something with a pom. This textured hat pattern was perfect! I used various styles of Red heart shimmer and Red Heart baby. It took me twenty minutes to work up. I really like how the pattern was worded. It made it very easy to understand and follow along.
