Giraffe Hat

My niece Kari was expecting her first baby near the end of June. However little Bryson had ideas of his own and decided to come into the world about 10 weeks early. He was born April 15th and weighted in at 3.5 pounds.

As you can imagine, Bryson has had a tough go of it, but he is a fighter and continues to amaze his parents.

Baby Bryson


Kari is an avid Pinterest fan, and saw the cutest giraffe hat there.  It is used primarily as a photo prop.  It took me a little bit of time and effort but I was finally able to track down and purchase the crocheted hat pattern through Ravelry

The designer is Jenny Norris of Cherry Creek Crochet.  I think the hat is really cute, and I know Kari will be very pleased with it.

If interested you can purchase the finished product on Etsy through Jenny's shop,  or do as I did and purchase the pattern through Jenny's Ravelry store.  Just search for giraffe hats. There are quite a few on Ravelry, but I think this one is by far the cutest so  thank you Jenny Norris for your creativity.

Here is a picture of my 1940's composition doll modeling the finished hat. This is the best I can do until Bryson is able to model.




  1. Hi! I went on ravel and was unable to purchase the pattern for the hat. I'm expecting and due very soon and would love a copy of this pattern. Can you help me?

  2. Hi Lindsay It appears that the pattern is no longer available for sale on Ravelry. However, if you contact the designer perhaps she can sell it to you directly. Here is a link to message her through Ravelry. If she is still active, she should get your message when she logs into Ravelry. Good luck. It is really cute, I have no idea why the pattern is no longer for sale. Best wishes with your new baby.
