FO - Bernat Baby Jacquards Knit Ruffle Hats
I made these for my daughter's sports trainer. His wife is expecting twins in January or February. The guy was my daughter's physical therapist after she had surgery on her knee. He's wonderful...we consider him family.

The pattern is free and located here. They were quick knits, requiring about a day each (since I have to work) to complete.

Instead of knitting the hats on straight needles, I used Magic Loop. I do not like seaming and felt this would be easier. That choice left me with a small hole on the top of each hat, so I made pom poms to cover them.



I used Bernat Baby Jacquards for both hats. The colorway for the one on the left (and below) is "Boys and Girls."



The other hat's colorway is "Berries and Cream."




The yarn is FABULOUS to work with! Each hat required only 30g of yarn to complete, so I have plenty left over. I might make booties to go with each one.

Thanks for looking!

Those are really cute!

I agree about knitting around instead of flat.

That is SO adorable. Thanks for the link. We have charity boxes at work for a family center, and that would be a nice thing to donate.

These are so cute!!

I used this yarn to make a cabled hat for a 3 month old and it turned out great too!! I wasn't sure if cables would come out nicely with the jacquard pattern but it looks great.

Thanks for sharing,
Julie

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
