To go with the blanket in the previous post, I made a hat using Caron Cupcakes yarn (Sour Grapes color) which comes with a pom-pom for the top. With the leftover yarn, I made a pair of socks to match. Again, my husband picked the color to go with the yarn for the blanket. I used the pattern on the label to make it (you can find it here) and although it says it makes a hat for a 2-10 year old, measure the head of the child to make sure it will fit as the first one I made using the 2-year-old size was too small for my 1-year-old nephew and I had to rip it out and make it larger. I took a bit of artistic license with the pattern and after it got to the rows all the same length, I added in a couple of rows of front post double crochet cables. When it came to the 5 rows of single crochet for the band at the bottom, I did those in alternating front and back loop sc to give it a bit of detail.
With the leftover yarn from the hat, I made a cute pair of socks using this pattern, but since it was thicker yarn than the pattern called for and for an older baby, I used a G hook and they turned out just the right size for a 1-year-old.
