“Cherie” is what happens when you have a lone skein of high-quality, interesting cotton yarn and a bare baby head, both at arm’s length. This hat is cute and sophisticated all at the same time—not to mention very easy to knit. A densely knit beret with a stretchy 2x2 rib band, it will fit for a few seasons to come. And because it’s cotton, it is soft on baby’s sensitive skin and comfortable almost year-round. The 100% cotton boucle is easy care—perfect for those little ones who seem to attract dirt like nothing else.

AUGUST 2013: Added a photo of my now 8-year-old daughter (same baby in the photos) wearing the beret! I guess it’s not just for babies…
