I bought 1 skein of baby blue Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton yarn the other day and am looking for a good pattern to use this one skein for. Three of my gf's are having babies and so I thought maybe a little baby cap. I found a pattern for a cute ribbed hat on Blue Sky Alpaca's website, but I can't seem to find where to purchase the pattern from. Here's the link:

It would be nice to have a free pattern for something simple like this. Anyone know of a similar baby hat pattern that I could use for this yarn? Or I'm really open to any other suggestions for what to use this yarn for. I just loved the color and feel of the yarn, so I bought it. Any help is much appreciated. -Ve

Are you on Ravelry? There are lots of free baby hat patterns. Here's a few that might work.

If you really want that hat you can put your state/country in here and it'll give you a list.

It looks like it's just a 3x2 rib or thereabouts with a garter edge so it'd be easy to do.
