5 Little Monsters: Textured Newborn Baby Hat

Textured Newborn Baby Hat

While I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago I decided to pick up a tiny little ball of yarn, Yarn Bee Lil' Dollop. It was one of those times I bought yarn without a specific project in mind, it was just something I had never seen before and thought might be interesting to try. It was like a mini striped yarn cake and I thought it would be fun for a small project.

It ended up being perfect for a couple little baby hats. I was able to get 2 newborn size hats out of this one small ball. They are only 92 yards and cost $1.99, but Hobby Lobby frequently has their yarn on sale for 30% off so I paid just over one dollar for 2 newborn size hats. Not too bad and fun to see how the stripes turn out. 


The stitch I used in this hat is called the lemon peel stitch. It is a really simple stitch that creates a really nice texture. It also works great with the self striping yarn because the color changes blend better than they do with some other stitches. I think this is because of the height of the rows and the varying heights of the stitches. 


All you need to know for this stitch is single and double crochet. It alternates between those two basic stitches to create a great textured piece.
