I seem to know a lot of people who are having babies or people who know people who are having babies (Did that make sense?). Anyway… I made four baby hats this past week. Two of them looked just like this and were made for a friend who had a couple baby showers coming up.
Maybe it’s because my oldest is a boy, but I am kind of partial to baby boy things. Girls are fun, something about a perfect little man outfit really makes me happy. And I really like the way these hats came out.
I did a simple brimmed beanie with a few cables on one side and a couple of suede covered buttons for extra fun.
And here’s a closeup of the cables. Crochet cables are fun, although they do have a much different look than knit cables. I have never tried knit cables (mostly because knitting stresses me out just a bit), but maybe one day. I tried a new experiment with these cables, and it turned out! Success!
I’m working on writing up a pattern for this hat, so watch out for that!
