Pea Pod Baby Hat

Pea Pod Baby Hat

This is Kate Gilbert's Pea Pod Baby Hat from the Summer 2006 Interweave Knits. I am pretty happy with how it turned out, the bear is wearing it a little bit crooked, but that's just cause he wanted to look jaunty. In real life the hat is perfectly round and just right for a baby head.

I loved the yarn I used, Rowan Wool Cotton in Smalt I think. This stuff is wonderful, it feels so good knitting up, too bad the hat is so small, I could have kept knitting for quite a while. I have a bag of this stashed away to make a sweater for me, and I am quite pleased now that I do, I'm not quite certain what it will become yet, but at least I know I am going to love knitting it when I do figure it out.
