Plotz-worthy cuteness

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.


You too can knit the free pattern for Lilly’s Hat from Stitch Marker.

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.

    Adorable… When I was on bedrest and pregnant with Hope I knitted lots and lots of little hats… there are so many patterns out there… I jad so much fun making one of each… I must admit… she wore them only a short time… she was born in March… and it got hot too fast for hats to stay in fashion… Happy knitting 🙂
