What materials did you use? Materials required include: #2 and #3 double pointed needles 1 skein baby sport (DK) yarn Optional #3 circular needle (flower) Tapestry needle
What are you most proud of? A combination of easy stitches make this hat look unique. The picot edging is just knit stitches and yarn overs and forms a nice border for the hem. I chose to put the ribbing a little higher just for something different. The knit stitches on the ribbing are knit through the back loop. I also like offering outfits and accessories (other than the Marine Dress Blues) that have no removable choking hazards. I am always thinking of safety first, then fashion!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Bernat Baby Sport (#3) or Softee Baby will work well for this project. The project uses less than a skein with enough left over for other projects or coordinating accessories. I used double pointed needles for the hat, but circular needles may also be used, either very short ones, or by using the magic loop method.
