Baby Blessing Hat & Flower Pattern

A friend asked me to make a baby hat for her little girl who was getting blessed on Sunday. I wanted a shell stitch design that started from the top instead of double crochets around until reaching the right width.

I found the pattern on Lacy Crochet's blog.  It only comes in 3-6 months size. You can make it wider by starting with more than 11 dc on round 1.

The No-Sew Rose pattern is from Ali Crafts, another blog I really like.  

The best part was seeing baby Mia wear the hat that I had made her. Most of what I make for other people I don't ever get to see them wearing. It was fun to be a part of this wonderful memory.
