This baby hat was designed for the Period of Purple Crying Program at the IWK Health Centre. The PURPLE program educates parents about normal infant crying and teaches coping skills in order to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. Since purple is usually considered a more feminine colour… how about a purple knight’s helmet for little boys?

Corrections: I decided to change the smaller set of needles to 3.5 mm (from 3.25 mm) to ensure comfortable fit even if a knitter has really tight tension.
