New Born Owly Hat

I’m so excited to share this cute crochet owl hat pattern for new born babies that I made yesterday. I made this for my future niece. Well I’m hoping it’s a girl. My sister is 2 months pregnant and were excited to have another baby in the family. I’m quite sure I’ll be busy crocheting some cute stuffs for this baby. Maybe I’m just so excited because I have another model for my crochet projects. LOL
