I call this hat Blue Lightning, because it’s so fast to make! Sized for newborn through adults, your fingers will be moving at the speed of light. This hat makes a great quick baby shower gift, or you can make one for baby and one for Mommy.
You can use this hat as a stash-buster, too. I held 2 strands of a fingering weight milk yarn to achieve worsted weight, but this hat will look good in any smooth yarn that has good stitch definition. Just make sure to match gauge both for stitches and rows and if using one strand of worsted, divide yardage in half.
