Baby Hat with Self-Striping Yarn

Self-striping baby hat 1

When I finished my self-striping socks last week, I didn't have another project on hand so I started a baby hat with the (substantial amount of) leftover yarn.  I didn't have a particular plan but figured 100 stitches would make a good size baby hat... and it just happened that it was a perfect fit for my adorable nephew who we were seeing this weekend!  Hopefully it will still fit him OK when it gets cold enough for him to need a hat again.

The self-striping yarn makes a super cute hat, especially with the decreases at the top of the hat.  He was kind enough to submit to a quick photo shoot even though it wasn't anywhere close to hat weather.  But I wanted to share a hatless photo too - don't you love his red hair??



  1. Your nephew is adorable! And with such a cute hat! Love it!

  2. This is just adorable! The model looks very well behaved. ;-)

  3. Cute! Cute! Cute! Your nephew is a little charmer! What adorable smiles for auntie!
