Good morning,

It didn't take long to make a hat to match the booties featured yesterday.  This was a really fun, quick project.

My pattern for the hat is below if you'd like to use it.  This is a 6 - 9 month size set.

Cast on 15 st, leaving 12" tail

Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for 16.5" ending with an even numbered row. (150 rows)

Bind off loosely in k all but the last st.

Upper part of hat:

(Right side) Join second color (tie around base of yarn from work with 1/2 square knot and slide close to work) and pick up a st between each rigge along side of work.

Work in garter stitch for 3" ending with a ws row.

Decrease for crown:

Decrease row 1: *k2, k2tog, repeat from * across (ending in at least 2 k st at end of row - you may have as many as 4 k st at end of row)

Good morning,

Yes, I love this set, too. I love yellow and white together for babies and it's perfect when you are working in advance of the birth! ;)

There is always a taker for the baby items I make. I always have a few around to be ready for the next time I need something for a gift. I recently gave away the last one so am now ready for the next time I need a gift set.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
