Apple Jack's hat

Apple Jack

Apple Jack

I knit this hat for my grandbaby, while my daughter was pregnant. We didn't know whether it was a boy or girl so I chose an apple design. Little did I know that the hat would be for a baby boy named Jack!

I don't often have time knit anymore, but how could I resist knitting for my grandchild!

I purchase my lion brand yarn from a local craft store. I needed an apple red color so I walked the aisle until I saw the color pop out. I used bamboo double pointed needles that I had previously purchased from my local yarn shop. Bamboo needles are so soft on the hands and made my knitting all the more enjoyable.

I used a pattern I found online. Copyright 1996 Ariel Zusya Benjamin. E-mail:

How long did it take you to knit? This little hat took me 2 hours to "produce" (a little apple humor there). The i-cord of the stem was new to me, but I caught on quickly. I also learned how to effectively finish off my loose ends so that they would stay put for baby. I added a little charm into the hat that said "knit with love."

It touched my heart to see my precious grandson wear something I had created with my hand. Seeing him wear it was a reminder of how God knit him together! It warms my heart to see my daughter carry on this craft and continues to keep his little head warm with hand-knit hats.
