Darling Baby Hats Perfect for Christmas (and one for Halloween/Thanksgiving)

Christmas Glitz Baby Hat & Mittens: This oh-so-cute baby hat pattern also includes bonus options for a headband and baby mittens. These patterns are wonderful for a subtle touch of Christmas flair.

You can add bows or flower embellishments, too, if you’d like, and Marianna’s blog includes a link to making a cute little flower to add to hat or headband.

Christmas Tree Hat & Elfin Sox: Here’s another baby hat pattern with a bonus pattern. This time, the bonus pattern includes wee socks. I just love the adorable way the hat resembles a Christmas tree, and the lovely little curve at the top of the socks. Try to resist your urge to squeal with delight. (Or, don’t… I won’t judge!)
