Baby Hat (complete with creepy baby doll photo)

I crocheted this newborn-sized hat for a friend who is expecting a baby in several months. I wanted to use my son as a model for the photo because the hat is really cute, but of course if it's sized to fit a newborn, my little almost-15 month old child cannot be stuffed into it! So instead I give you the hat, modeled by a somewhat creepy-looking baby doll.

I didn't use a pattern for this hat; I just double-crocheted and increased by doubling up stitches every few rows until I had something that was the right size for a wee one, and then made a big fluffy pom-pom for the end.

I'm sure it will look much cuter on the actual child.
