Ribbons and Bows Beanies

I knit up these most adorable hats for shop samples. It’s the ribbons & bow beanie by April Lowe. I picked up the pattern (for 4$) on Etsy. (Seeing the purple one on her Etsy page makes me want to make some more, in purple too). This pattern makes me want to knit one for every baby girl I know. And make some for gifts. I think I will absolutely make this one again, over & over again. Well, let me tell you, the next girl that I need a gift for, will be getting one of these! And the newborn size doesn’t take more than 30g combined (in white & pink or whatever color you chose), so from a 100g skein of worsted weight, you can get a bunch of hats out of these. It was about 20-25g of the main color & about 5-10g of the white. Oddly, the cotton hat weighs more than the wool blend hat. I used Berroco Weekend for the cotton hat & Berroco Vintage™ for the wool blend hat on a 4.5mm needle. I used a 16” for the hat until the decreases and then switched to some double pointed needles.

Super cute! Anything with bows is a win in my book.
