I decided on a whim that my baby-to-be needed a stocking cap for his newborn pictures. I had some yarn left over from some previous projects, so I combined them to make this super adorable head-topper.
Isn’t it the cutest thing EVER?! I used the Autumn Forest Gnome Hat pattern and modified the cast on number to fit a smaller head. The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in “Lettuce” and “Plomo.” I opted for a tassel instead of a leaf or pompom.
The hat is super long, measuring 18.25 inches without the tassel. I’m envisioning a picture where it is draped down his back while he sleeps on his tummy. I sure hope it fits once he’s here!
