Please join me in helping to send every baby born at Southside Hospital home in something warm and cozy. Southside Hospital is located in Bay Shore on Long Island.They deliver about 200 babies a month. Most of the families who havebabies there have nothing to bring their babies home in. That’s where we come in. My group, Bella’s Babies, provides warm, handmade items for these families.

this pattern for the hat. I am using Pound of Love and a size
G-7 hook for the larger ones and Bernat Softee Baby and a size G-6 hook for the smaller ones. To make the hat with a fold up bring work 11 rows of DC and 1 row sc crochet in the contrasting color.
To make the ears: ch 8, dc in 4th chain from hook and each chain across, ch 2 turn, work 8 DC rows. To decrease for the point of the ear: (row 9) DC in first 2 stitches then work a DC decrease in the next 2 sts, ch 2 turn. Row 10: DC decrease 2 stitches together and fasten off.
Make 2 white ears and 2 pink or blue ears. Lay the colored ear on the white ear and single crochet the ears together, I just work the 2 long sides, you don't need to crochet the bottoms of the ears together. Sew on.
Remember hats should be 11"-12" around.
