This is a great little hat pattern. It's called the HUDSON HAT, it's a great way to use up scraps, especially self striping and hand dyed yarns, excellently written, and a very quick knit. It can be made in several sizes. The one in the photo is Newborn size. Little Silas, my model, is 5 weeks old. He should grown into his hat in a few weeks, just in time for cold weather here in Atlanta.
I used some yarn in my stash - Vintage Berroco in blue. I added white stripes which I think look like vintage tube sock stripes. I also added little pom poms at the end of the earflap cords and tip of the hat. Just perfect for a chubby cheeked little guy!
