Baby sun hat?
Does anyone know of a good knitting pattern for a baby sun hat? I've been looking with very little luck. :thinking:

I agree that it's incredibly cute, but I worry that it might be too warm. What do you think? Maybe I could try using another type of yarn?

Maybe, depending on where you live....It's neat that you can button up the earflaps for when it's cooler. But you're right, probably not a summer hat per se, more like spring and fall. :D

I'm currently in upstate NY and it can get quite hot here in the middle of summer. Hmm, maybe knit baby sunhats aren't very practical as they'll always end up being too warm--that could be the reason why patterns for them are hard to find. I could knit the dashing Miss Dashwood for spring and fall as you say. Besides, I'm moving to Iceland in July and this hat could come in handy there. I suppose I'd better get to work on the Dashwood soon so the baby can start using it now before it gets too hot. :XX:

Thanks for finding the pattern.

That hat is darling! And anything with a reference to Jane Austen is a must-have! You have lucky babies.

Yup, to keep the sun off her head and eyes. But it doesn't hurt if it looks nice, too.
