Last week, I found myself stumbling upon a pattern that had been in my Ravelry queue for some time. Even better? Ravelry told me I already had the pattern in a magazine from 2007. So, I dug it out the magazine, found some yarn (Knit Picks Comfy Worsted for the hat, Berroco Comfort for the petals and some random green acrylic for the stem), and went to town on the Upside Down Daisy Hat by Susan B. Anderson.
It's your basic hat pattern, with a little yarn switich and i-cord at the end. You knit the petals separately, then sew them on. So so cute.
It's possible that I will be casting on another one of these for my niece. I think she would look ridiculously cute in this hat. And, I have been in desperate need of a more mindless knitting project, and this fits the bill perfectly.
What's your fav baby things to knit? There seems to be pregnant women and newborns around me everywhere! I can't even keep up with it!
Happy knitting. :)
