Spring has sprung! I’m loving the warmer weather and wanted to share a festive spring pattern with you! This little chick hat was really easy to make and would make the perfect hat for a spring baby! This pattern is for size 0-3 months. You can take the pattern for the beak and place it on any size hat if you needed the hat to be a bigger size.

leave a long tail for sewing
- Sew beak and buttons on hat to make a birdie face!
- Cut 4 strands of yarn about 6 inches long and pull through a dc stitch on the top of the hat. Tie in a knot to make the “hair” and trim the yarn to the desired length.
