Puff Stitch Newborn Hat - Free Crochet Pattern

Welcome to Day 3 of the 30 Newborn Hats in 30 Days Challenge!


So I recently challenged myself to knit/crochet a newborn hat for the next 30 days. I find that I get so consumed with using my craft for work that I forget to use it for the good of others as well. So, I will be donating all of these hats to my local hospital once i'm done. If any of you are willing to join me, I will be posting a newborn hat pattern EVERYDAY for the next 30 days! Yay!

Today we will be making a puff stitch newborn hat. This hat is worked from the top down, which means no seaming!
