UPDATE: This yarn has been discontinued but I will keep the pattern for those who might have it in their stash.

Bernat Baby Jacquards is a self-patterning yarn that creates simple floral design resembling Fair Isle technique. All you need is one ball of yarn and this pattern to make 7 little hats for the Period of Purple Crying Program for less than a dollar each.

The PURPLE program educates parents about normal infant crying and teaches coping skills in order to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. The Not-All-Purple hat sends a message that the ‘purple period’ is a part of baby’s normal development and will pass.
