After a long hiatus from knitting, in the last trimester of my pregnancy, I got the urge to knit a baby hat. I rushed to finish it in the last days of summer, and last days of my pregnancy. I finished the hat with a few days to spare before I went into labor.

I didn't know if it was a girl or boy, so I picked a yarn that would suit either - this gorgeous Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino in a rainbow colorway that I bought while on vacation in San Francisco. It's knitted flat and seamed together, so I knitted it on US size 3 straight needles.

The pattern is the Crystal Palace Pixie Hat, that I found online and had printed off years ago when I had first knitted it for a friends baby.

It took just a few weeks to complete... just in time for the baby's arrival! For some reason, when I knitted it, the purl and knit sections don't line up properly, but I still think it turned out adorable, and I don't think my little girl minds at all!

Fine, in my opinion think you should decide one main color from your "Rainbow Hat". Let’s ask you buy a research paper for collegechoose red, if you choose red you must dress in a red shirt.

When I was pregnant with my first baby, I was very excited and I wanted to do something constructive in maternal vacations. I have found your blog and I started knitting socks first. I found rainbow color wool in the market. I have made rainbow socks and now I am planning to knit the hat like this. Its great to be the part of essaycenter essay and provides services to students as well as other people.

Its a cute hat for a cute and adorable baby. The baby is looking so handsome in it. I want to knit for my daughter too. I will buy the same multicolored wool for the special rainbow hat. It is not easy for a paper writer like me to have spare time for knitting but still I wanted to do a similar thing for my daughter.

I love it and that baby is adorable in it! Great colors, I like using a rainbow for gender neutral, rather than sticking to boring yellow or green. Good job!
