A Winner and a Baby Hat

Wow--you guys are all about winning, aren't you? I wish I could send all of you a free book but that's not in the budget. So instead let's all give a big round of applause to the winner Jannoknits! Tippecanoe has made his pronouncement and no one can defy him. Just look at him, he can't be swayed!
 Since you're here you might as well look at what is basically the cutest baby hat I have every made. I made it for a good friend's new baby boy and feel that I have discovered my new go-to baby pattern, which is to say that if you're preggo, I'm making this for you.

The Specs
Pattern:Alfalfa Baby Hat by Kate Gagnon
Yarn: Cascade 220 in 'Turquoise Heather', .45 of a skein
Needles: size 4
Mods: I did this on smaller than recommended needles in order to get a size fit for a newborn.

There is something, dare I say, sculptural about this hat? It's just such a perfect shape. So easy and FAST....I'm pretty sure I was doped up on Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Remedy while making this and it took less than 4 hours, so that should give you an indication of how non-complicated the pattern is.

Once again Cascade 220 proves to be a workhorse yarn. OMG--is there anything this yarn CAN'T do? I've knit it on everything from a size 4-size 8 and have always been thrilled with the results. And the colors--seriously. Above you see depicted the famous Cascade 200 wall at Natural Stitches. Just tell me that it doesn't make you weak at the knees!

I love Cascade and the colors, oh my!
Very cute hat.

Jodi said...

Ooh, love the hat, esp. the color! Cascade 220 is one of my go-to yarns for a reason.

Joan said...

Tippeecanoe just looks petrified that you are going to make him model that (very cute) hat.

SJ said...

Hey, I know that wall!

The hat is adorable. I have to do some baby knitting soon, so it's going on the list of possible patterns.

We ever talked about Runescape history , Runescape quest , Runescape varity items ,Runescape gold farming and ect.U may feel boring about that depressing topic.Today , we will get rid all that boring and talk about something relax.How much music does the average MMO contain? It depends, of course, but I doubt that many games are able to reach the number that RuneScape does. Are you ready for it? It's 982 tracks.
