Red, you are my enemy!
It was hardly my fault, though, as obviously the Peruanito needs a hat to match his Valentine's Day/Coming Home sweater. I had plenty of Tosh Sport leftover from his Little Oak cardigan, but after a thorough Ravelry search, could find no newborn-sized hats I liked.
I blame the pregnancy hormones.
Empty handed, I decided to just make one up.
This is a pretty accurate representation of the color! Don't mind the shadows.
The lovely thing about newborn-sized hats is that they are very, very tiny, and even winging it, this took just a couple of days to come together.
The brim features a seed stitch border and XOXO cables, perfect for Valentine's Day.
The rest of the hat is a simple plain stockinette, with easy crown shaping.
And still more yarn remains, so I've started a pair of matching Moc-A-Soc booties for the Peruanito as well. I knit a pair of these waaaaaaay back in 2010, and still can't get over how adorable they are. I finished the bootie portion of the 1st one yesterday, so now I need to pick out some scrap fingering weight for the cuff.
Baby is due in 2 weeks!
