Newborn Mickey Mouse Inspired Hat Crochet Pattern

A few weeks ago I was unfortunately infected with a sinus blocking, head throbbing flu {Courtesy of my little sister}. 
So in an attempt to remain sane, I browsed Pinterest, hoping to discover some or other quirky Disney pins... I was not disappointed! I couldn't believe the amount of artworks, quotes and hidden movie gems there were to be found! I'm happy I'm not the only adult still as obsessed with Disney as when I was a kid! 
What's your favourite Disney character? Mine is Rapunzel!

  2. Hi I was wondering if you could list a gauge for the babies caps so far I've made the newborn Mickey but it looks too big your patterns are adorable but my "baby" will be 21 soon and I'm making the caps for baby shower gifts and don't have a baby to go by and with them a small amount is a huge difference and thank you for sharing your adorable patterns.... joyce

    1. Our nine year old has a newborn baby babydoll (she no longer plays with) that was purchased at walmart and it s the average size of a 7 pound baby, I have found it very useful when fitting hats and sweater sets for newborn babies

  3. Hi, I was wondering what brand of yarn you used for this hat? I made it today for my son (he's almost two so I made it a bit bigger) but the ears won't stay upright, they keep flopping over :(

    Thank you!
