What a joy to test knit for friends!! The most awesome Kathy posted a darling little baby hat last week, and then patiently recreated her pattern in a newborn edition just for yours truly, asking only that I show her the results. Duh?!
Pattern: Comment Cap (I’m sure Kathy will share the pattern if you ask.)
Yarn: Red Heart Sparkle something in white. I’d call it DK weight, and Ravelry agrees.
Needles: US #6 dpns until “cord” topper; then I switched to whatever very wee, short dpns I had in my buddy case.
Verdict: Yes, please… I’ll knit another! Probably in this very same yarn, since so many of my friends are expecting. That one is going to a precious little guy named Tucker, just as soon as I can figure out what to take for his new big brother (suddenly not an only child)…
… but I wanted you to see the very cute top to the hat, so mission accomplished, even with a disgruntled model.
Do you have a favorite baby hat pattern? And with “all” of my friends expecting in the summer, are hats appropriate gifts? Do babies wear hats in the summer?
