Baby "Umbillical" Hat

Finally finished my little package up for a gift. No, it doesn't match the blanket I made the other day, but I wanted to use a more "natural" choice (eco-friendly) for the hat and the Bernat Bamboo yarn was perfect. Super soft, 89% bamboo.

I used a pattern from Lion Brand-yes, Lion Brand. The pattern called for Velvetspun, which is bulky and the Bernat Bamboo is bulky, but no where near as bulky as the Velvetspun, so lots of tweaks.

Pattern: CVS Baby Hat

Yarn: Bernat Bamboo is Mais

Tweaks: Original pattern, went up to an L hook for the entire pattern, made the 12 month size, however stopped at 3" instead of 3 3/4"-two rows of crab stitch at the edging done with a K hook. Simple pattern.

An organic cotton washcloth rounds out the present-all set for giving on Friday! Woot!

I am so glad I don't know anyone having babies any time soon or else I would be tempted by the pattern. You did a wonderful job!

Really cute hat! I've seen knitted hats like that, but never a crocheted one.
