Our family welcomed a new baby cousin recently and even though the mama was hoping for a boy, I didn’t want to use blue for her baby gift just in case. Of course, she did have a boy – over a week late, in a homebirth, and a whopping nine-pounder. Go Jenny!
I went with red. I’ve worked on knitting projects in-the-round for fingerless mittens and a pillow but had yet to try a hat (one of the most common in-the-round projects, I would assume). I knew the kind I wanted to make and was excited when I found this free Munchkin Hat Pattern.
Sorry for the fake baby, but we don’t have a newborn in the house right now. *sniff sniff* Are you on Ravelry? Check out my project details.
It was super-easy and fun to whip up, though I goofed a couple times because I was watching a movie at the same time – oops! Had to unravel it a bit and re-do in a couple places but it turned out nicely in the end. I’m hoping to adjust the pattern to make some bigger ones for the kiddos.
