It´s a quick and easy knit, a perfect little gift for the newborn in your neighborhood. The shape of the Lemonz baby hat reminds me on tasty little fruits. This tiny beanie is knitted in a simple rib pattern, very few significant increases and decreases create some diagonal lines.

The hat is stretchy enough to fit for a little bit longer. It was knitted with a graduated shaded yarn fading from dark to light to produce a subtle self-striping effect. I used two skeins of the same colorway, one from the light end, one from the dark end.
