New Hat Week

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
I want to thank Ruby for directing me to the pattern for this cute hat. I saw it on her blog the other day and decided to give it a try. This hat comes in two variations. The version I made is called Seed Stitch Hat. This is a good pattern that I will use again. I made it according to the directions and ended up with a hat that will fit a 3-5 lb baby. I think it looks a little like a muffin from the bakery.

There are lots of free patterns on the internet for preemie hats. I know, because I have collected a binder full! So this week's knitting focus will be to test some those. I'm calling it New Hat Week. I will knit only hats that I have never tried before. I hope they all turn out as cute as today's hat. We'll see. I can't guarantee a new hat everyday, but I'm going to try. I leave you with a picture of Monday's hat as viewed from the top. The decreases create a pretty spiral.

  4. Too cute. I'll definitely have to try out this pattern. Your hats always inspire me to knit my own. I'll be watching all of your new hats this week.

  6. What a darling hat!
    Did you see that there's a tea cozy contest... (it's in the current english knitter's magazine, the name of which escapes me just now). Grand prize is a weekend in England with LOTS of tea. This one would be a natural, I think.
