Chunky Newborn Beanie Pattern

I love making a little something special for baby shower gifts. My family usually pools together and does a “welcome wagon” for the baby by filling a wagon with assorted baby gifts. I will have to blog about that sometime… pretty sure Mom has some pictures. Anyway, I have done rag edge flannel blankets, but the selection of gender neutral flannel is lacking.
