While my Mother-In-Law was in town last week, I got a few quick projects done. It was nice to have an extra set of hands to look after the Griff so I could get some knitting done. My Sister-In-Law is expecting her second baby in August. She lives out West near my MIL. I wanted to send her home with something for the new baby. I found a very cute and simple pattern on called “Simple Newborn Hat with a Touch of Lace” by Ginny Foreman, available for free on Ravelry.com.
I used Bernat Softee white yarn for this hat. The yarn was a bit difficult and kept pulling in places, but all in all, very soft and affordable yarn. It worked up very fast and only took about 4 hours for me to complete. To give you a reference for size, I actually blocked it on a red wine glass. It is so cute and small and soft…I am keeping this pattern handy for any other friends or family members in the future.
