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.  🙂
