I finished Baby #2’s hat yesterday. I washed it and blocked it, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. It’s a little tight in the colorwork/stranded area, but it’s not bad for my first try.
Like I said before, this hat is way too big for a newborn. I’ve already begun seeking the *perfect* newborn baby hat pattern so that I can make something she can wear right away.
In case anyone’s interested, the hat was knit on size 7 dpns with Knit Picks Galileo in “Pearl” and “Valentine.” The yarn is listed as sportweight, but I think it’s a bit heavier than that. It has a nice sheen, and it’s very soft, so I think it’ll be very comfortable for Baby to wear!
