Baby Cat Hat

Well it's been a while. Christmas has come and gone. New Year's has come and gone. I haven't been doing much after the big rush of Christmas which is the only excuse I have for not being here or on Instagram for the past couple of months. 

This weekend I worked out a pattern for a little hat for a baby. A cat hat! I searched the internet and Ravelry and eventually came up with my own version of this popular hat. I thought you had to shape the ears in the knitting, but it turns out the hat is knit in a straight tube and when you put it on the baby's head, the ears just naturally stand out to the side. Simple and effective ... my kind of knitting ;)

I have posted the pattern here onto Ravelry if you're interested. I'm not entirely sure of the sizing, but hope it's big enough for a newborn or maybe 3 months. All my daycare kids are away right now, so I can't test it on a baby's head! It fits over a ball of yarn that is 16 inches around with still a little more stretch left in it (helpful, right?).

Something to keep a baby warm during this cold winter. And how cold has it been here you ask? I think this was the lowest we had ...

Thanks for stopping by!
