Here’s the hospital hat I whipped up a week or so ago. For some reason, I couldn’t stand the thought of Ella not having a handknit one. Most likely because I know the ones they stick on the newborns at my local hospital are pretty darn ugly. They’re basically cheap cut off tube sock things and the hems aren’t even finished. The horror.
Yes, this is the same yarn I used on her sweater, bonnet, and booties AND Hannah’s Big Sister Hat. I’m certainly getting my money’s worth out of the two hanks I bought! Be prepared. You may end up seeing a pair of pink socks, too, if I can find the time. :)
For the brim, I ended up doing 8 rounds of st st, then 6 purl rounds. I added the extra knit rounds to make sure it rolled up enough.
You can find the original pattern here.
And my Ravelry page with the mods, measurements, and details is here.
