I am so excited to share this super cute free chunky crochet newborn hat pattern with you, topped with a beautiful rose! I was so excited to do a review of the Chunky Red Heart Medley Yarn. This yarn is variegated and the color I used was called Stained Glass, which can be purchased on their website. I absolutely loved the colors in this yarn. It is so soft and I didn’t have any problems with the yarn splitting as I sometimes do with yarn of this thickness. It was a wonderful material to work with, and I will be getting some more in different colors. Make sure to follow Red Heart Yarns on Facebook, they do lots of free pattern shares and giveaways!
The newborn photos in this post displaying the hat were taken by myself, please give my new Morning Peach Photography page a like!
