The baby is due in November…and it’s cold in November! So the baby needs hats right?
I have to admit, I think this one is adorable. It’s a super quick knit (except for the casting on of 200+ stitches). The pattern calls Lamb’s Pride, but I figured that would be too scratch for a baby’s head (which may not have much hair to protect the delicate skin.) So this little sweetie is knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran which is buttery soft.
Of course, now that it’s done I worry it’ll be too small. Or too big. Or not clingy enough. Will the ruffles bother the baby when it’s lying down? How big are baby heads anyhow?!
Ugh – this baby-knitting thing is hard!
P.S. In case the girly hat doesn’t tell the story…according to the ultrasound we’re having a girl.
