Wedding gift no. 1: Baby beanie with a tuft

Here is the first crochet craft I'm gonna show you: a baby beanie with a tuft. 

I wanted to make a soft, warm beanie 'cos my nephew/niece will be born in December, so it's gonna be cold then. Tiny head must be warm <3

At first I tried to make the hat by using these instructions (in Finnish, sorry), but I just couldn't make it work @___@ I had different kind of yarn and different sized hook, so the measurements were fucked up all the time, so in the end I decided to make it my own way. At first I had tried to start crocheting from the top of the hat, which didn't work, so when I started crocheting from the lower end and made everything "in reverse", the hat turned out fine :D 

The yarn I used is called Novita Usva, and the hook was 3 or 4mm. I'm sorry, I can't remember which one, I made the hat ages ago XD But I think it was 3mm o_O The yarn was thick, so I I wanted to use a smaller hook to make the hat firm.

I think it looks pretty cute :D I just hope it fits o___O As I'm working in a children's clothing store atm, I have learned that some babies' heads can be enormous XDD Oh well, we'll see :D
