For A Boy

Here are a couple finished baby hats - from Itty-Bitty Hats of course!


Hat on Left:
Pattern Source: "Candy Cane" from Itty-Bitty Hats
Yarn: Berroco, Touché
Size: Newborn
Needles: #5, 16" circulars
Notes: Done in baby blue and brown instead of the red and white the pattern shows. I think this pattern is my favorite. I think it's so cute on a baby!

Hat on Right:
Pattern Source: "Marley Topper" from Itty-Bitty Hats
Yarn: Filtes-King Extra, 100% Merino Wool
Size: 0-6 months
Needles: #5, 16" circulars
Notes: I stopped the striped repeat when the decrease started - I guess I got lazy but I think it looks just fine. I also did a crochet chain and single crocheted in each stitch for the topper. It was a nice change and easier and faster for me then the DPNs. Plus, they curled really good on their own too!

And if these hats don't make you want to cast on for one of Susan's Itty-Bittys then this link will!!! Niki is a friend of mine (a local photographer here in Michigan) and she does AMAZING work. You'll be pleased to get this link and you'll love the shots of my nephew Jack! Oh Susan's Cupcake hat was so perfect for Jack's 'one year' photoshoot! Isn't he a cutie!
