hand knitted baby hats…for warm heads & warm hearts

Newborn Baby Photography with sweet little hats

Tomorrow  morning I have a session with a 5 week old baby boy – I can’t wait!   I hear he’s pretty cute.  🙂   And I’m sure he is.  I’m excited for 2 reasons – he’s going to be so tiny….and because I’ll have another model for my hats!   Boys have been a little hard to come by, so tomorrow I’ll be able to get a sample of  the Chip design and more of the Bobby, Sam and Jace.   I know that’s expecting a lot out of a tiny baby, but if he falls asleep, I’ll be golden!

Organic cotton newborn baby hat, photographic prop

As a photographer, I LOVE working with little babies.  This beauty was asleep, but a little wiggly at first.   Then, after a good feeding, she was zonked!   She is just so precious, I can hardly stand it!

She is wearing the Ruby hat – and I am currently working on getting an image with the hat without the ceramic button.  While I love the button for photography, I’ll be showing the same hat with two knit flowers (1 inside the other).   This is to make this design more suitable for everyday wear (without the choking hazard the ceramic button may cause.)   The organic cotton and texture are light enough for spring and fall wear – and of course, make beautiful portraits!

Chip – knitted baby hat, newborn, photography prop

Another organic!   I felt a need for more boy hats, and was thankful to find this yarn in that great organic cotton I like to use.   I made the border squares, which reminds me of a baby blanket I made a while ago and I really like the variation in texture.

A name, a name, the pressure of a name!  Thinking of names for the girl hats was easy, my family is mostly girls!  But, boy names are more challenging…..so I thought I’d start with the oldest of my younger brothers.   Besides, this reminds me of a hat Chip used to wear.   Or maybe not.   It just reminded me of him, and I like the pattern, so I wanted to actually give it a name, because I’d like to make more “Chips”!  (Though when I was younger, 1 Chip was plenty!)  🙂

Hand knitted baby hat, boy, blue and green

I think I’m a yarn junkie.  I walk around the skeins and my mind just starts spinning with what I could do with all that I see.  I found this yarn one day, and love the color combination.  I was just playing around and made this simple hat.    I can always add a pom, if desired!

J.T. Hand knitted baby hat, newborn, premie

I made this hat on a whim one day, and it’s tiny.  So cute and so tiny.  It’s a lot like the Meghan, just a little different.  And for a boy, obviously.   I chose the name J.T. because we had a premie born into our circle several months ago.  Thankfully, little J.T. is growing and thriving, and we really can’t call him ‘little’ any more!   We are so grateful he’s strong and healthy.   I’ll make this hat available in bigger sizes, though, but will list the JT in the store, for that premie that needs a warm head!

New hand knitted baby hats, newborn, photography prop

After determining my patterns for the named hats below, I decided to play around a bit with other styles and designs.  This is called, descriptively enough, Small Twist (pink).   Made of the same chunky yarn as the Brooke, this is Imagejust a fun hat I came up with one day.  As all the other hats, this will be available in the store, but this may be the only one made.  If it’s popular, I’ll make more.  🙂
