Slipped Rib Hat

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
You will notice that this hat bears little resemblance to the picture on the pattern. That's because I never could get the rhythm of the slipped ribbed design. S1, k1, sl1, p2. Sounds easy enough, but for me, it became tedious. So, I did a couple of repeats of this and then finished up with straight ribbing. Later I realized I was reading too much into the instructions of how to slip the stitch, so that part doesn't even look like it's supposed to. I decided not to be a perfectionist and leave it as is. This hat is tiny and will fit a 1-3 lb baby. Yarn: Caron Cuddle Soft. Needles: size US 3. Cast on 60 stitches. I have one more hat to show you tomorrow. Until then, more sky pictures...
