Giant Leap of Faith

I found another cute hat on the 'net here, (look around, there are a lot of cute patterns--free!) and though I couldn't actually see the whole thing, I had suitable yarn (Reynolds Saucy Sport in a sort of sagey celery green) so I decided to take a stab at it and, well. . .

Results are on the left. I think it "works."

The garter stitch bands are embellished with little loopy knots formed by multiple yarn overs (or is that yarns over?). (I refuse to call them "bows," this being a little manly hat. )

And why, you might wonder, do I continue making hats, now that the weather is warming up and clearly, spring has sprung south of here (where the Tiny Prince lives)?

Check this out for reasons to put a hat (and long sleeves) on baby in the summer!

Of course, you don't want to give the kid heat stroke, but serious sunscreen is not recommended for infants, thus, a hat is in order.


I couldn't agree more with the hat thing...not to mention how cute babies look in hats.

But how do you keep the damn things on? My kids' first motion was to reach up and grab the hat off. If tied on, they screamed until the hat was removed.....
what a great pattern. the loopy knots are supercute - oops! i mean super manly! :D
