Newborn crochet photo prop patterns free


By popular demand, I am happy to present the crochet pattern for larger owl hats! But first, lets go over a couple of frequently asked questions. 

Q: What is a Magic Ring?

A: I like to start all my hats with a magic ring. The magic ring can take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it really is a great way to start crocheting in rounds. is wonderful explanation on how to make a magic ring by my friend Kara from Petals to Picots. She gives you pictures and a video tutorial!

Q: Where do I start my rounds?

A: Always start your round in the same stitch as your chain 2. This will help hide the seam.

I will let this picture do the explaining.

Q: Where do I join my rounds?

A: Always join to first DC, NOT your chain 2. This will also help hide the seam.

Now for the long awaited patterns!

Supplies:
• Vanna’s Choice® Lion Brand medium worsted weight yarn (I use  and an accent color such as pink, green, purple, turquoise)

Note: I have simplified this pattern since writing the newborn size so you may notice the larger sizes start differently and have a different stitch count but in the end they will look the same.
