You may remember this hat that I knit before Johnny was born. My inclination was that it was way too big for a newborn size head, and I was right. However, now that Johnny is 5 months old the hat looks great on him.
Just to reiterate, it’s the Apple Hat by Susan B. Anderson, knit using Rowan Pure Wool Aran in Cedar. The color is a bit off in the above photo (I “antiqued” it using editing software) but from a cuteness perspective the picture is just right so I decided to use it anyway. The color in the photo below is closer to the actual hat, though Johnny doesn’t seem very excited to have his photo made.
I think this hat will still fit in early fall when it starts getting chilly. For now I’ll put it back in the drawer – I don’t think Johnny needs it in this 90+ degree heat!
P.S. Don’t forget about the pattern naming contest!
