Granny Stripe Hat for Baby || free crochet pattern

I’ve been working on making some Bean Earwarmers in the last two days but I got the itch to do a granny stitch hat with some wonderful fuschia yarn I had sitting around. And so this was born…

This pattern is very easy, works up quickly, and uses little yarn. It’s perfect for those half to less than half skeins you have sitting around!
