I made a few quick baby hat patterns to support the Click for Babies hat campaign. I think I had 3 hats from one ball of yarn. I might have been able to squeak out a fourth, but I had made some swatches.
So, anyway. I tried to make them just a little patterned and then fairly straightforward so they are easy to knit and quick as well. You can find the pattern through Ravelry. All three hats are included in the pattern. 🙂
And if you are so inclined, feel free to make a little hat (follow the guidelines on the Click for Babies site) and send it to BlackSheep at Orenco by September 25. We are handing them in Sept. 30. 🙂
These little hats are specially designed just for the Click for Babies (Purple Hat) Campaign. These little beauties are cute and quick to work. A touch of patterning keeps the hats interesting, while a worsted yarn means they work up extra quick.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
