Pattern Description:

I got a request for a braided baby hat. So I first tried something in cheap Acrylic yarn.
As I love the penguins so much I just put them on this hat.
And it all worked out just fine.

The penguin baby cap has two earflaps with braids, a short ribbing and the paper doll like penguins on it..
At the top is a nice winter star pattern and a tiny yellow pompon.
I had so much fun making it and still can(tm)t put it out of my hand :)

I will make another one in pink for a friend expecting a girl in late October.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
