I taught my DH to knit Nov. of 2006 and he knit over 20 hats that winter. He hasn't knit a thing since then, until this. Everything he has knit has been his own design.
I have to say that he didn't start this to be a baby hat. He cast on 96 stitches and this is worsted, so should have fit an adult, but he knit it so tight it will be for the new DGD. :lol: It didn't take him very long to realize it was going to be a baby hat, and it's a girl baby at that. I'm not sure how this will fit into her wardrobe of pinks and whites, and pastels of all sorts, but I know our daughter will be happy to have a grandpa made hat for her little girl.
It's made of Patons Classic Merino.
