Vintage Inspired Baby Hat

by Aimee on October 11, 2010

10 Months ago, by bestie, Danielle, had a baby girl, Sloane! I haven’t blogged nearly enough in the last 10 months to show you all of the amazing things that I have knit her. But, let’s just go with she is a total fashionista!


Pattern: Louise Cardigan
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy – Punky Fuchsia
Needle: US 3 (3.25mm)

After I knit the cardigan I realized that baby Sloane was due to join us in November (though she held out until December…) and that it would be chilly, even in CA. So the cardigan needed a hat. But there wasn’t one in the book. And it NEEDED a hat. So I designed one to go with it.

Pattern: Vintage Inspired Baby Hat
Sizes: 0-3 (3-6, 6-9, 9-12) months – shown in 0-3
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy – Punky Fuchsia (I used what was left from the cardigan)
Needle: US 3 (3.25mm)
Price: $3.00

Way back then, I contacted Kristen Rengren – the cardigan designer – and asked her if she was ok with me publishing this little pattern – and she said yes. So, special thanks to her both for inspiring the hat and for being ok with the pattern being published.

But let’s be honest – you don’t really want to just see pics of the items, you want to see the baby in them…


Baby Sloane – wow – she is growing so fast!!! I really should get up some more pics of her in her knits. Just wait until you see what I made her and her cousin for their first birthday!!

Okay seriously looking at her in that carseat makes me cry. Look how little she is..OH MY GOSH!! My girl is so big now. She is alittle fashionista and I am jealous of all her knit items. She is one lucky lady.
