MOM Pattern image

Last week, I did a bit about the hat I whipped up for my Etsy store.  I whipped up the pattern and thought I share the newborn size. If you’d like a printer friendly version with sizes NB-Toddler I’m offering a discounted version here

I try to make my son wear hats all of the time.  Slouch hats, caterpillar beanies, the hood of his dinosaur hoodie.  He keeps nothing on.  I suppose each of my kids has their own idiosyncrasies, I mean, my oldest only wears Star Wars…only…tees to the point where its easier just to spray him off in the tub than to bother with his laundry (this is of course, an exaggeration.)  My husband bought him a pair of Star Wars slip ons the summer after “The Force Awakens” and we only just retired them because, of course, he out grew them and destroyed them yin the process.   My other son doesn’t have a preference so much as a mercurial fashion sense.  probably 30% of my laundry comes from his numerous daily costume changes.  My daughter simply had to have “bootsies and sockies for her feetsies,” and much like my oldest, has a pair of sneakers in her closet that she wore twice before she outgrew them.

And then there’s the baby and hats…he won’t wear anything that matches, he won’t keep it on long enough for me to take a picture.  Then, according to my husband, he started wearing this:  CohensFaveHat01

The resemblance is uncanny.
