Oh, the joys of Spring!  Babies, babies, and more babies to knit for.  Baby knits are the most satisfying types of knits – fast, cute and colorful.  This little hat is for another old high school friend of mine, Pete, and his wife Stephanie.  They are having a little girl in a few weeks, and I couldn’t resist whipping up this little confection of a hat for her.

The stem is knit as part of the hat, and the five petals were knit separately and then attached after.  I left the petals slightly loose, so that the ends could curl up a bit like  – just like real flowers.  There was quite a lot of weaving in to do, but the overall effect was totally worth it.

Don’t you just want to knit a whole bunch of these in different colors and sit them in a sunny window?  Adorable!  Here are the details:
