I love making the picot stitch. It’s so easy, and one of the few stitches that look great for boy edging. Grab an E crochet hook and super fine weight yarn to make this Picot Newborn Hat for a special little one in your life! I can make this hat in about an hour even with it being super fine weight yarn. If you need a little extra help, the video tutorial is at the end.
Have you ever walked through a specialty shop? They kind of look like a gift shop but with much better products. Well anyways, I could easily see this hat in a small specialty shop by the beach since it is made for hot, sunny days. What do you think?
I’d love to see what y’all come up with!
