When I asked Mike what kind of hat he wanted me to make for the baby, he immediately wanted a Brown’s football helmet hat. I have made a lot of different variations of these hats and the Browns is so easy because they don’t have a logo on the side to figure out. Of course our little guy will have to be a Browns fan since we live in Northeast Ohio. Even if the browns never do win 🙂 I made this hat in a 0-3 month size so hopefully it will fit him throughout the winter.
If you want to add braids to this hat it would be a really cute addition. Mike opted for no braids so that is why I left them out. If you are looking for a different hat size I have a toddler version and an adult version too.
