Just in time for spring and Easter is the adorable crochet baby lamb hat. Those of you with an Etsy shop will definitely want to make one…or two! It will be the perfect finishing touch to any photographer’s spring photo shoot.
I designed the crochet baby lamb hat quite sometime ago and decided to share it with everyone this spring. Martha Stuart Lofty Wool blend is the perfect yarn for this project. The bulk of the yarn makes this hat work up in less than an hour. Yes you read that right, less than one hour! In addition to the lofty wool blend yarn, you will also need a small amount of worsted weight yarn for the inside of the ears. You can use just about anything from your stash. Well, I know your anxious to give this cutie a try so let’s jump right in!
