Our second child is due in April, and even though it will technically be spring, the little one will still need a hat. Since we are waiting to know our baby's gender until its time of arrival, I thought a little top knot gray hat would be appropriate and gender neutral. (although I feel like we are having a boy, I'm not as entirely confident as I was when guessing our daughter's gender!) The pattern was very easy and free, here's the link! For the border I simply did one row of knit followed by one row of purl, to avoid any curling of the brim.
The yarn I chose was "Sublime" a baby cashmere merino silk blend, very soft and a great color! I have a good amount of yarn left over that could be used for a knit toy, or perhaps a little baby scarf!?
I'm looking forward to having our babe wear this little one.
And here's our daughter in October of 2010 at two days old sporting the pink hat I knit her. This is how confident I was that we were having a girl! ; )
