Hi Ya'll - here's a hat I just made for a baby girl my friend just had. I know you can't tell that well, but I used a light pink ribbon through it. Not perfect but it's the best hat I've made so far. I used DPNs for the first time! YAY! It was easier than I thought it would be :D

Hi Vanessa - yes, this was a free pattern posted here on knittinghelp. It's in the hat section on the bottom under baby hats. It's called Ellen's Ruffled Hat. I did it because it said beginner :lol:

Oh great!!!! My son is 3 and my daughter is 1 1/2. I'd love a site for a good hat for them. I tried making a simple one for him before but it was way too big! He looked so silly! :lol:
Thank you so much!
