[knitting] Last minute handspun baby hat

I quickly made a hat last night and added pom-poms today.

Handspun Baby Hat


The yarn is handspun:

Cotton Candy


This was a fairly uneven, thick-and-thin spun yarn to get me back into the swing of things. I really like the uneven texture of the hat. You can tell it's homemade, which is kind of nice.

The yarn was bulky, so I cast on 56 stitches on size US 10 needles. Knit for about 6 inches, kitchener the top closed. Add a pom-pom to each corner.

The hat is going to Dollar's niece, who just turned 1. I think the hat might be a little big but hope it gets a lot of use next winter.

Awwww, that's a really sweet hat. You'll have to get them to take a picture of her wearing it, so we can see it in action!
