Every time I get a baby shower invite, I immediately start having visions of fabulous mini-aran sweaters in shades of green and blue, and fair isle dresses in shades of yellow and pink. Generally these daydreams last several weeks, until I find myself scrambling the night before the shower trying to finish a hat or bib. This cap is the perfect last minute baby shower solution -- an easy pattern knit in chunky yarn! Bigger size hats are the perfect bonus for a soon-to-be sibling or an expectant mama or papa. We've also included a bonus cowl pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl knit in the round decrease GAUGE 16 stitches = 4"/10 cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
