Flower in an Hour is a super quick, fun and relatively simple baby hat with a very easy lace pattern for just a few rounds, and an adorable flower for added cuteness. This is the perfect project for super fast baby gift knitting and it will make you the hit of any baby shower!

The pattern is written for 3 sizes (0 months to 2 years ~ the largest size will most likely fit older children) and it is written out for two weights of yarn, both Bulky and Aran weight with two different gauges.

Bulky gauge is 3.5 sts per inch.
Aran gauge is 4.5 sts per inch.

This gives you lots of options for speedy baby gift knitting. In the photos the dark pink hat is the Lorna’s Laces Bulky weight yarn and the speckled hat is the Duck Duck Wool Aran yarn.

Flower in an Hour is titled so because of the small size of the project, the heavier weight yarns and bigger needles, plus the simplicity of the design all make this an incredibly quick knit. And, of course, it is a cute rhyming name for a baby hat.

With that being said, it may take you a bit longer than an hour but hopefully not too much longer.
