This is definitely my new ‘go to’ baby girl hat: Ribbons (Rav link) from Itty Bitty Hats. There are so many cute hats in this book, but for some reason Ribbons is my absolute fave!!!! So far I’ve made 3 – and somehow managed to not blog about any of them???
The first one I made was back in March, for my friend Amanda to give to her new baby cousin. They are St. Louis Cardinals fans and she wanted something that reflected that.
I don’t keep a lot of red yarn around, so I used some Vanna’s Choice that I had for other purposes. I tried to choose some ribbons that would incorporate colors from the Cardinals’ Logo – I think this turned out really cute.
2nd hat was for the Ribbons Hat swap on Ravelry
Since this one was ‘just for fun’ I used some stash Bernat Cottontots in Lemon Berry. I love the ribbons on this one!!! Unfortunately I do not have a good place to buy ribbon around here, but I think that these are just adorable together.
Hat #3 was for a baby girl at church. She is so precious and I thought she needed a precious hat.
For this hat I used Classic Elite Yarns Summer Set. I LOVE THIS YARN!! I’ve never used it before and now I’m really wishing that I’d bought more when I got the few skeins I did buy in Florida this year. LOVE IT. So soft and the color is really great. I have 2 more of this color left over and I am contemplating more baby hats. A great yarn! (I really like pink and brown together.)
