Back to baby hats

Many babies are a-comin' in my world (no not mine) and I had grandiose blanket/bunting/blah blah hopes for these new soles but that is not to be, at least not til April. So as a result, babyhats.

This is my adaptation of the Luuk pattern---that pattern uses worsted and I had fingering at home--Knit Picks Chroma, which I also used for that cowl a while back. I love how this looks in that yarn.

What I"m not sure of, though, is the gender of the hat--can a boy wear this? A girl? What thinks the internets?

too long to fit into an entire photograph and for you to still be able to see how cool it is.

I'm on the third pink.

I have a few more rows left on the cuff and then this puppy is in the books. I like it and should get some good wear out of it.

If I was a fancy designer...

...I'd be finished right now. But silly me, I always go for two sleeves.

The body is done, now for the sleeves! Progress!

Balanced by an upsetting half an hour with Romeo when 2 rows and had to tink them both. Grr.
