I know, this is the first hat that I have made for Baby K's noggin. How did this happen? I somehow got sidetracked with cardigans! OK, so this is one of my "go to" baby hat patterns. I have made it numerous times and each time, I like it more and more.
pattern: Baby Hat by Leigh Radford
yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Butter
I always make the same mod. The pattern calls for you to knit the umbrella edging and then knit in the round until the piece measures 3.5" from cast on. I like to knit for at least 4". Otherwise the hat doesn't cover baby's ears!
In total, this project took me 2 hours. I have been working on this new yarn holding technique that has really helped me speed up, especially when working straight stockingnette.
Random: When I left my house this morning it was 56 degrees. It's now in the 30s and it has only been 3 hours.
