This pattern is one, that I designed, for those of you who are art yarn lovers, or spinners, who wonder, just what you can do with a small amount of it!
This sweet hat features gentle ribbing, for fit, and an amazing texture!
Size: Newborn, 3-6 Months
This pattern is the boy version, of my Amelia pattern (http://www.etsy.com/listing/90441579/new-yarn-list-newborn-hat-pattern-amelia). This means that the entire yarn list is in boy colors!
25-30 Yards, super bulky, hand spun art yarn, 4-5 WPI (pattern includes a list of yarn suggestions)
1 Set, Size 15, Double Pointed Needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
1 Tapestry Needle
Knitting in the round, on double pointed needles, Purl, SSK or K2tog.
Pattern comes with a long list of handspun yarns, that would work, for this pattern. I have shopped, so you don't have to! Simply pick a yarn, and follow the pattern!
This hat is for use under direct adult supervision.
Thank you so much, to Leslie Lane for the wonderful photos!!

Gauge: 7 stitches/almost 11 rows =4", in stockinette stitch, on size 15 needles (If using 5 WPI yarn, gauge will be 8 stitches =4".)
I have always been inspired, by hand knit items, but it seemed beyond reach, for me...until I took some knitting classes!
From there, it became my relaxation, and creative outlet!
My passion is designing, and I love to spin my own yarns, as well!
I love to see the finished product, on the baby models....
