Try this Cluster Newborn Hat pattern for an adorable little newborn! This is a great hat to put together a baby shower gift. It is also easy to change from boy, girl, or neutral gender styles. I’m not sure about you but I have always found the cluster stitch to be easy, just grab your super fine weight yarn and E hook – it’s time to get started and there is a video tutorial at the bottom to help you out if needed. I hope y’all enjoy!
