My cousin Darcy had a baby (her fourth!) a couple weeks ago, and in honor I decided she (Chamberlyn Shay, 6 lbs 9 oz, 19 inches long) needed a new hat. Doesn't every baby need a new hat? I scoured my books for something suitable (translation: I could finish in a day), and found this oh-so-cute number. I had great soft cashmerino yarn in my stash and an excuse to go buy some gauzy ribbon. I finished the hat just a couple hours before the shower: Mission Accomplished! I had Josephine model it before I gave it away.
I just LOVE the ribbon detail in this hat.
I cast on and knit 240 stitches, and then did a row of k3tog to get the cute ruffle around the edge.
After the photo shoot, I decided I'm going to have make one for Josephine, too.
