I designed this little baby hat to use all the odd ends of sock yarn that a lot of us knitters have lying around our houses. I think it would work beautifully with self-striping, plain or variegated yarn or with mixed colours leftovers (there are ideas for this at the end of the pattern).

It reminds me of 1950’s science fiction films and makes me think of a spaceman from that era. I named it Nicolino (which means little Nicolas), because I designed it on the day I heard that my friend had given birth to her little boy, Nicolas.
