Cro-Shayley makes a Baby St. Patrick's Day Chapeau

I have yet another friend who is pregnant and is due in April, however, this friend is having a little boy. She is going with a ""rustic"" themed nursery so I decided to make her a cowboy hat and boots so maybe she could use these for some newborn photos.

After making the St. Patrick's Day Chapeau in my last blog, I decided to make the hat again but even smaller this time to fit a newborn. I tweeked the pattern a little and like last time, I only used 1 strand of yarn. Also, I used a G6/4mm crochet hook. Here is the revised pattern I used (Corrections have been made in red):

For the cowboy boots, I used Red Heart's WR1759 Baby Boots pattern but left off the tie. I switched colors at Round 3. I repeated Round 8 twice and switched back to the color I started with after that for Rounds 10 and 11.

I crocheted a star applique to sew onto the side of the boots.

5 Pointed Star Steps:
Ch 2, 10 sc in 2nd ch from hook; join with a sl st in first sc.
* Ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch. skip next sc on Rnd 1, sl st in next sc; rep from * around.
Finish off and sew onto the side of the boot.
