Please describe and tell us about your baby hat.
i love this hat style! it is such a quick knit but has amazing results. it can be knit in any weight yarn too! so versatile...
What yarn and needles did you use and where did you get them? Why did you pick this yarn?
i purchased this yarn a while back from a seller on etsy.com. i love it because it's all natural fibers (merino wool), undyed and handspun...perfect for wee baby heads! i used size fifteen needles (double points) to accentuate the yarn.
Tell us more about the pattern you used.
i made this pattern up after seeing several different styles of this hat on a few baby photographers websites. a photographer friend wanted one for her own "prop stash" so i played around with it until i found something that worked.
Did you run into any problems when knitting your baby hat? How long did it take you to knit?
this hat is so easy to make...it's hard to mess up! i finished this hat in about an hour...give or take.
Anything else you'd like to share about your knit baby hat or knitting in general?
