For the next 100 days, I’ll be crocheting tiny newborn hats to donate to my local hospital in memory of the little on I lost on Mother’s Day 7 years ago. It’s a bit of a healing project, something to focus on as Mother’s Day approaches once again. I’m thrilled to be able to give back, and if you like, you can join me as well! I wrote this very cute newborn hat pattern (it’s very easy!) but added a graph as well in case you wanted to jazz it up a bit. Make it plain, or add the flower graph, either way, I’d be thrilled to have some company. You can share your newborn hats along with me on my Instagram at @coco.crochet.lee and use the hashtag #100daysofnewbornhats to follow along. Happy Crocheting!
