FO: Little Knight newborn purple hat
Yep, still designing newborn hats, still for Period of Purple Crying.

This one is for boys, and its working name is Little Knight (other suggestions welcome). The twisted ribbing makes it stretchy, and the doll's head is smaller than that of a regular newborn.

Would you guess that it's a helmet or it's not that obvious? Is it a good name? Is it a good idea? By now you should know all my designer's insecurities. Go ahead, you can bill me later








But, seriously, thank you for letting me run ideas by you. It helps a lot.

Thanks! Also, it looks a bit like Pope's Mitre on the second picture but it's due to wrong proportions

I like this shade of purple a lot. IMO, it's gender neutral! Nice design! Not run of the mill by any means!
