Finally picked up the ol’ knitting needles again and made this little flour sack hat for an expecting friend due in the fall. It’s 0-3 months so my son’s head didn’t suffice as a model.
Enter: cabbage patch. What a great and not at all creepy model!
Really fun and easy hat from Baby Beanies: Happy Hats to Knit for Little Heads. KSam did you finish the one you started?
The only not-so-beginner thing about it is the 3-needle bind-off, which is what makes it straight at the top. The little “ears” are created by tying some yarn around the corners.
I’m feeling a baby hat knitting binge about to happen as the weather cools down (someday?) so more to come.
