Crochet Baby Bird Hat

Crochet baby bird hatBaby bird hat finished!  Phew!

I was asked if I could make a hat for a little girl whose nickname is ‘Birdie’ and at the time I had 2 weeks before my due date and I was so confident that I wasn’t going to get an early arrival that I jumped at the chance and designed something a bit different…and of course brand new baby Custard arrived early! So, I’m really sorry that you have had a little delay Birdie but here is your hat!

Crochet baby bird hatThe exact brief was to create a baby bird hat that wasn’t an owl.  I do lots and lots of owl hats

and I love doing different colors and styles – blocks of colors and stripes included – but I liked the idea of creating a bird that was a bit different. So I took the main elements of my owl hats and swapped them for the opposite – big eyes have become little, a small flower has become a big flower detail, 2 ears have become one feather ‘plume’ and so on.  What do you think?

I really enjoy taking commissions so if you have an idea for a hat, or for anything else please get in touch.  For each commission I will usually draw a sketch so you can see what type of thing I am trying to produce and make any alterations of course you get to choose co lours and details.

Here is the baby bird hat sketch – rough but you can see what I was thinking!

I am pulling together a Pinterest board at the minute with some of the examples of my work so you can see what other creations I have done 🙂

Commission hats are priced based on the complexity of the design and therefore the time they take to make and also the amount of yarn used.  Prices start from £19.

But the arrival of baby Custard does mean that there is currently a bit of a delay on commissions and it is unlikely I will be able to do more before Christmas – sorry!

    I would love to have one of your sweet birdie hats for infant photos! I just found your site and baby is due 12/7/15, with pics within 8 days after, would there be any way to get one in this time frame?

  5. Would you be willing to sell the pattern? I would love to make this myself, it would cost too much to ship to me anyway.
