Very Important Check your gauge! The gauge for this hat is 5.5sts/inch where as the Tulip sweater by Lindsay Pekny is 4.5sts/inch.
Just like almost everyone else in blog-land (hell-o fellow lemmings) I have knit the tulip sweater for my daughter Kailey. How could I say no to the adorable stripes, the dream in color yarn, the sweetness of a baby sweater. When I finished I was amazed by how much was left over, I probably could have knit the 12 month size! ( I think this might have been because of my gauge. I also choose not to use the blue lagoon for the neck i-cord.) I was inspired to use up every last scrap of this luscious yarn so it would not go to waste. I decided to knit a hat. So here is my un-pattern for a colorful hat for baby to fit a 6-9 month old child, (17.5″ head circumference)
please note that you will need the tulip, a colorful cardigan for baby pattern.
