Making a baby hat as a shower gift can be a great way to go -- you will get lots of ooooos and aaaahs! For a brand new baby, aim for a circumference of 15 or 16 inches; to leave room for growth, then try for 17 inches. The beanie style hat is a great project for the beginning crocheter and should take you about 4 to 5 hours to complete.
