So this mess became these little hats. I decided at the last minute (Wednesday) to knit baby hats for a baby shower I was attending on Saturday. Granted they are baby hats and knit up quickly, but I was creating my own design (simple though it may be) and that does add a little bit of time. Especially when you don’t like what you did and have to rip half of it out.

I have no concept of the size of a baby’s head. These look small to me. But I have no idea. They are about 13 inches around. Suffice it to say, I am very curious if they will fit. I did think that since they are twins, they might be on the smaller side but I don’t know. I did tell everyone that if they didn’t fit the babies they would look great on a stuffed animal or doll.

My favorite part of the hat is the top, with the little nubbin tied in a knot. They are simple hats, knit in the round in two colors. I used Blue Sky Organic cotton yarn which I love. It’s so soft and I am a big fan of the natural colors. I am happy with how the hats are the same yet still different.

What do you think?
