Ok, you guys, this slouchy baby hat is basically the cutest thing ever. I knew, going in what shape I wanted this cute slouchy baby hat to be, but the first time I put it on Baby V, on top of her head like a traditional beret we all started cracking up. So be aware, this hat looks best worn towards the back of the head in a slouchy way like Baby V has it on in the photos. Otherwise, as O pointed out, she looked a little bit like a chef.

Of course, if chef is what you’re going for, then wear it that way! Also, I did want to mention, because it’s a slouchy baby hat worn towards the back of the head, it runs a tad larger than my normal hats so if you’re in doubt, size down. It’s plenty stretchy but you don’t want it to be too big or it won’t stay on!Slouchy Baby Hat Knitting Pattern for your newborn, baby or toddler! | littleredwindow.com
