Today our friend is being born. In honor of his/her birth I am posting the gift I made for him/her. It’s the softest baby hat I have EVER EVER made. I used this pattern that I found on ravelry and the wonderful freebies I got from Lion Brand.
Run, do NOT walk to your nearest website/store and pick up a skein of this luscious alpaca (seen here: auburn/main and fawn heather/trim). It takes your beautiful gifts for baby from drab to fab. To make it extra fun, grab a skein of their latest neon colors in radiant orange for the beak, tassels and braids! I thought it was the perfect addition to this cute owl hat.
By the way, super fast and easy to make, and makes a great gift. I already started on one for Pickle–hers is being crocheted in natural alpaca.
