Baby hat 'Tiny fish'

from Sandra Jaeger's Strickstuebchen
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Baby hat 'Tiny fish'
Baby hat 'Tiny fish' Tiny fish baby hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round on double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

Welcome my second pattern from my new ebook Tiny knits " Fair Isle baby socks and baby hats.

It(tm)s a real cute quick knit for newborns.
It went as a birthday gift to a little new baby girl born a moth ago and it fits just perfectly her mom assured me.
And it(tm)s also her favorite beanie from the little collection :)

I knit it in soft Acrylic 4-ply yarn (Buttinette Versailles 196 m/50 g). Anything similar (e.g. Merino) will do.

You can use up your yarn leftovers and also knit each band of fish in a different color if you like :)
Make the pattern your own!

Enjoy and happy knitting!
