Darla Crochet Heart Baby Beanie
Create this adorable baby heart beanie! So cute for little ones! I’m expecting a baby in July and cannot stop making these sets! Just adorable! The beanie uses a size H hook and medium worsted weight yarn in 2 colors and follows a simple easy to follow pattern. The heart appliqué is crocheted separately than sewn on. The final beanie measure 5.5″ wide and 5 3/4″ tall. Make it a set with my matching baby Darla heart bootie pattern HERE.
