The baby hat is done! I’m not sure what size baby it will fit, of course. It might work for a newborn if the ribbing is folded up around the bottom. Otherwise, it’s pretty stretchy and will probably work for next winter too.
Pattern: Frog Monkey’s Spiral Rib Hat
Yarn: Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK, color 0007, 1 ball
Needles: US6 DPNs
Comments: My spiral went the opposite way of the one shown in the pattern. I’m not sure whether that was me or the pattern – I started it several times with a different number of stitches, and I probably wasn’t looking at the pattern instructions by the time I got to the last cast-on. I noticed that the spiral was going the other way, but didn’t really think it would matter – but when I got to the decreases at the top, I had to reverse them so that they’d spiral in the same direction as the rest of the hat. (Instead of doing “PSSO, then knit x stitches”, I did “knit x stitches and then K2tog”.)
