brown baby hat
This is the baby wool hat pattern from the book "easy baby knits"(claire montgomerie) in size 6-12 months. In the book the pattern is to be knitted flat and then sewn together to make the hat. I decided to knit it in the round and do a knit2 purl2 rib around the bottom instead of the k1 p1 rib in the pattern and i didn't add a pom-pom because it is for a baby boy (Christmas present). I used lion brand yarn, fishermen's wool in "nature's brown". In the book the pictures show the hat to be fairly loose on the baby's head but the hat also fits my 7 year old brothers head, just being a little short.
