This hat is part of the New Guy layette collection from Tot Toppers. New Guy is available as a booklet or an e-book and the patterns are now available individually as well.
A lightweight hat is appropriate for a baby born no matter the season. • Shown with the coordinating Hello Kimono, this one features a 3-color Fair Isle style stranded design in what is otherwise a very classic and simple knit. • Beginning knitters can work this design solid or with some easy stripes. • Extend the length of the brim for extra wear; just fold it up or down for longevity. Shown in Preemie.
