Today’s hat is really more of a bonnet. I saw this adorable thing come through my Reader recently and just had to make one. Unfortunately, my plastic container stand-in doesn’t do this piece justice.
Wanting this to be closer to infant size, I dropped the yarn and needle sizes down. I used Classic Elite Yarns Chesapeake in color #5981 “Tendril Green”. I picked up this yarn at Knits by Nana when I was in Louisiana visiting a friend. (The shop is lovely and the staff is friendly. If you’re ever in Baton Rouge, I highly recommend a visit.)
The construction on this was definitely interesting, but not hard. The applied i-cord was done with a technique different from the one I’ve used before, but it seemed to work out just fine. I’d estimate my hat came out more of a 6-9 month size, but I’ll have to try it on a baby of that age to be sure.
