baby baa-ble hat and newborn striped hat

It's no surprise that sheep-themed knitting patterns are super popular. This Baa-ble Hat pattern was one of the most queued projects on Ravelry in 2015! I adapted the adult-sized pattern to fit a 6-9 month old baby by using smaller needles and thinner yarn (Rowan Wool-Cotton 4-ply). I finished the hat and pom pom in just 3 days over the Christmas holidays! I'm thrilled with how it turned out, and happy to continue improving my colorwork skills. Hopefully this will fit our little girl next winter! More details on my Ravelry page.

I also finished this striped newborn hat recently. This hat took 3 attempts since I wasn't happy with the size on the first two. This is the same pattern as the Penn State hat I made Dan for Christmas a few years ago, just with smaller yarn and needles. More details on my Ravelry page.
