The Lion Baby has nearly gown out of his winter hat.  With still two months of winter here left to go, I needed to make sure his adorable head was going to be covered.

 The pattern is Rainbow Marley from Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson
 The Yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash (Blue) and Nature's Choice Organic Cotton. I know it's a strange choice to mix wool and cotton in color work, and I may regret it, but it's just stripes, and honestly, I've never machine washed any of the kids hats, only spot treated them, so I'm not too worried about it.
Modifications: The pattern calls for every other (in this case) green stripe to be in seed stitch instead of garter stitch.  I liked the cohesive look of garter each time, though.  I also did more of the curly toppers than the pattern calls for and varied their lengths.

Super cute on my chubby baby, and it's big enough that it should (fingers crossed) fit him next winter as well!

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    Look into my site :: graduate certificate programs
