fo: suede baby cap


I forgot to share photos of this when it had been knit.

The pattern is the Suede Baby Hat by Vickie Howell, I got the free pattern from DIY Online.

Yarn: Berocco Suede (beige) and Lionbrand Homespun (white)

Needle: 4.5mm

Dates: July 6-10 2008

Modifications: Whoo boy.  I don’t even know that I can consider that I knit the same pattern.  I converted it to be in the round ‘cus I didn’t feel like seaming.  I changed needle size from the pattern as a Ravelry search led me to believe it would turn out too large.  I wrote the pattern for the lining because the Homespun is so much thicker than the Suede, had I followed the same diretions the lining would have been larger than the hat itself.  The same thing goes for the ear flaps and the faux front flap.  I also worked all the flaps attached instead of sewing them on later, and worked icord instead of garter strips for ties.  But other than that, it was the same pattern.  🙂

My Ravelry project link is here, as well as in the 2008 finished projects gallery under “projects”, above.

  1. Wow, that turned out so cute! I like your changes. I will have to check if this can be made in a larger size since I need some easy holiday gifts for little boys (we have two Godsons).


  2. So cute!! Did you knit the matching Ugg booties? It’s hard to find cute hats for boys so this would be great!


  3. Wow, such a great job! Don’t you just hate it when the weather turns so suddenly, and you suddenly have to knit 4 hats in 2 days?
