Here is a hat I made for a dear friend's first grandbaby based on the pattern called "A Little Hat" (http://larissmix.typepad.com/stitch_marker/2005/09/a_little_hat.html). I can't wait to see it on her.
Needles: sz 9 circulars (2 pair)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, Colour 25009

The flower I added was based on Paton's "fabulous felted flowers" (http://www.patonsyarns.com/pattern.php?PG=acc) pattern- I used the pattern for the small petals only.

Time: ~1 to 1 1/2 days to knit at my pace.

What I learned/tips to share: I think I'd prefer the rose flower pattern that the original author used for this hat. If I knit it again that's what I plan on trying. The Paton's flower pattern is a bit too floppy for my taste with this hat.

(edited to include yarn type)

Beautiful!! It looks like something you just want to rub against your skin - which is a GREAT quality for anything for babies and kids :D

Very nice :) What yarn did you use? It looks nice and soft.

I made this pattern for my granddaughter last year and made some matching booties to go along with it. The hat stayed on well, and is even cuter on.

Thanks, all!

Mama Bear, Whoops, sorry 'bout that - just caught that I left off the kind of Debbie Bliss. It was Alpaca Silk that I had left from another project. I am happy you shared how yours fit and looked on baby. What type yarn of yarn did you use to make yours?

Loveswildflowers,

I used Jaeger Matchmaker Merino since it's machine washable. It wouldn't matter for the hat, since baby hats don't need washed often :) but since I was making the booties also, I figued it might be a good idea.

This was the hat my granddaughter wore the most until she started to outgrow it. Then I made a baby sized tychus from knitty for her with a some Peruvian silk (80% baby alpaca 20% silk) along with some cashmere. Obviously not machine washable LOL... but it fits like a dream.
