Over the summer a friend returned to me a couple of hats I had knit for her little guy that he had outgrown. One I gave to my 3 year old nephew and he’s been wearing it this fall. The other was smaller and plain brown:
The littlest baby in the family is a girl. Not only does she have three older brothers, there’s 7 years and 4 boys between her and my next youngest niece, so I thought the hat needed a little pick me up before she received it:
The solution: a little pink flower in some leftover yarn from the newborn hat if her brother had been a girl.
Pattern: Simple Knitted Flower
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Zarina (apparently discontinued; I liked the yarn for baby projects.)
