Little brimmed hat and diaper cover FREE PATTERN

So this is my latest addiction. These work up so fast and are so easy to make. And they are ADORABLE. I can't wait to get a picture from the client I made them for with brand spankin' new little babies wearing them! The cap pattern is a very basic beanie pattern with a brim added. The diaper cover is from cbraden7.blogspot.com and I will post a link to her pattern. This set would rate super easy on the skill level chart, so give it a try! I'm going to do a set of matching booties next, but I really can't decide on a color. Oh well, I'll have to try multiple colors!

SO here it goes:

H hook
worsted weight yarn
this pattern will fit a newborn baby
