It seems like everyone around me is having, or has had a baby in the last few months, so that means it’s double time on the baby patterns. I have just finished a really cute hat for my friends niece. I was torn between a cutesie baby hat such as this pattern on I found on Ravelry:

Spring time Beanie

Or an earflap hat pattern that I created which was a little more bold, but just as cute. The bold earflap hat won, and I couldn’t be more happy with the results! Here is the beautiful baby wearing her awesome new hat.

Baby K. - Punk rocker in the Making

She's too tired for rockin' out

This pattern was a combination of two patterns that I found on Ravelry. The majority of the pattern comes from this Ravelry site. The second portion of the pattern, or the mohawk, came from this pattern. I just adjusted the pattern to fit the hat.

Although I am a huge believer of eco friendly, real wool, and purchasing yarn from a local yarn supply store, I thought it would be best for both baby and mommy to make this out of synthetic yarn. I didn’t want it to be too hard on the baby’s skin, and I wanted it to be easy to wash for mom. I used the softest yarn I could find: Bernat Satin in Ebony and Lion Brand Baby Soft in Pink Lemonade.

I know, I know. Most people would never put black on a baby, but you can’t have punk rocker without the rebelious black and hot hot pink hues! I think it suits her!

Oh! and nd a HUGE tank you to my friend T. (who just so happens to be Baby K.’s aunt) for the awesome photos!
