Crocheted Zebra Hat for Baby Benjamin

It's cold and cloudy and yucky today.  How is it where you are?  I am so ready for sunshine and warm weather, aren't you?  I'm ready for flowers, and green grass and leaves on the trees.   I am over winter and cold and sickness and gray, cloudy days.  Bring on the sunshine is what I say.

The only good thing about cold weather is it has forced me to stay in and work on projects which is a good thing.  There are so many new babies who are in need of gifts and I have been working away.  I have a couple of quilts in the process and have been doing some crochet work.

I recently wrote about those adorable crocheted high top Converse-type booties that I crocheted for a friend's baby.  Before I sent them off, I decided to make this adorable zebra hat to keep his little head warm when he arrives at the end of this month.  There are so many cute and fashionable hats for babies these days, it was hard to narrow the choices down to one.   It will be cold in Indiana for a while longer, and this will be just the thing to keep his head warm.  The black and white look goes well with the booties, don't you think?

Isn't this hat just adorable?  I found the pattern on  It is a free pattern that she was so very kind to share with all of her readers.  I found the original picture on - where else - Pinterest and I thought it was so cute that I just had to make one to go along with little Benjamin's shoes.
He is going to be one cool dude in those shoes and wearing his little zebra hat.  I hope his mom and dad like them as much as I do.  Can't wait to see pictures of him all decked out!

The hat is a newborn size and is made from acrylic yarn with an H hook.  There are adaptations for larger hats in the directions also.  It is very easy to make.  If you want to give it a try, just head on over to Adorably Hooked for the directions and a very special thanks for sharing your pattern!

You can find the shoes on my post of February 4, 2013,  titled "Kate, This Is For You".  If you have babies in your future, make them a beautiful handmade gift.  They are so meaningful and make wonderful keepsakes.  Their mother's will love you for it and it will give you so much pleasure to create a one of a kind gift for those precious little people.  Have fun!
