Pink And Brown Baby Hat
My design process for Pink And Brown Baby Hat is as follows…I enjoy knitting up baby items. I love the soft colors and feel of the yarn. One particular Wednesday afternoon while enjoying “Open Knitting” at my LYS I decided to check out the new order of baby yarn that recently arrived. I am not certain why, perhaps I was hungry, but when I saw the new yarn, the pink and brown colors reminded me of cake. Why? A fond childhood memory. A dear friend’s mom frequently baked chocolate cakes and topped them with pink icing. What little girl doesn’t love that?
I bought the yarn, went home, wrote a few notes and soon the Pink and Brown Baby Hat was designed. Oh, and I am fairly certain cake was involved. You know, for inspiration. 🙂 🙂
In summing up, here are a few things to think about…
♦ You can use shades of pink and purple for girls or blue and brown for boys. Any color combination will be nice. My advice, choose the child’s favorite color(s) and you will be a hit.
♦♦ Not a fan of the purl bumps between colors? Prefer a smoother transition between colors? You will find the solution to that within the pattern notes. 🙂
♦♦♦ You like the hat, but not sure about the I Cord at the top? The pattern also provides directions on finishing the hat with a more traditional plain top.
Materials I used:

♥As are all my knitting patterns; this pattern has been test knit twice and both copy and tech edited for accuracy.
