Here's a stylish upgrade to the usual cute baby cap (and sized up to Adult as well!). This newsboy inspired hat features a slightly fuller shape and alluring little brim. Worn slightly askew, it gives the wearer that little bit of extra look of mischief!
ALL of the sizes only require one ball of Knit Picks Gloss HW yarn! And this cute cap is entirely seamless, making it a very quick knitting project.
Garter stitch background provides a nice contrast to the mock cable panels, created with twisted stitches. Ribbed bottom band ensures a great fit.
A fabulous unisex look, sized for babies, toddlers, children, and adults.

Two baby showers coming up. Tired of knitting the same old baby shower favorites. Saw this pattern and ordered it immediately. The first one is almost done, then I'll start the second one. Turning out really cute. As always, Katherine's pattern is well written and easy to understand. This one is going onto my baby shower favorites list!
