Velvetspun Baby Hat with Top Knot
Here is one of the baby hats I've knit with Lion Brand Velvetspun yarn. That yarn is so soft and thick - just lovely to work with.

Here's a link to the free pattern: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kvs-babyHat.html

Thanks! I can't decide what I'm going to do with this hat, because I don't have a baby boy among my family and friends. I just wanted to try the pattern because I love the yarn. I've already made a scarf for myself in garter stitch, and it looks like rows and rows of pussywillows! I'll probably end up giving the baby hat to Charlotte Threads of Love. http://www.charlottethreadsoflove.org/

I think I'll buy some more Velvetspun yarn in Pink, and make one for my granddaughter!

i made 2 baby hats out of that and HATED the yarn, so much so, that i threw the hats away instead of giving them to the intended babies

the yarn just shed and shed and shed and shed while knitting and it would NOT STOP shedding - i didn't think it would be wise to give it to a baby if it was going to keep shedding

yours doesn't look like it was shedding at all

i guess i got a bad batch

Poor Jelly.....

It sounds like you got a bad skein! I had the same problem at the end of the skein when I was cutting the yarn, so I put a tiny bit of glue on the end of the yarn to keep it from fraying. That fixed the problem.
