I made this a few months ago for my friend, and her baby has finally arrived. Here's a piccie of cute Anya in her hat:



That was my first lace project and it really helped increase my skills and my confidence as a knitter. I used a pattern from Interweave Knits Summer 2004, "Snuggly Baby Hat", and Dalegarn Baby Ull washable wool with #2 DPN (they're like toothpicks!! haha!!)

it took me minutes to quit fawning over the baby and look at the hat, but once the initial AWWWW! factor was over, the hat is darned near as cute as the baby!

It's nice that you mentioned it was a good project to build lace skills on, I can't bring myself to start a huge sweater with a skill I haven't fully acquired yet.  You did a great job on it!

And bravo on the size 2 needles, did it take forever?

Actually, I knit the thing in a week or less. The lace is knit first in a long skinny rectangle, then seamed together to make a band. Then stitches are picked up and the crown of the hat is knit in the round.

It probably would have gone a lot faster if I had known what I was doing with the chart and the yarn overs when I started. I had to rip it out several times until I finally had a light bulb moment.

If you try something like this, I highly recommend using a "life line" (I used dental floss!) to mark the beginning of each repeat in case you make a mistake and you can easily frog back to a spot instead of starting all over again.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

What a great pic!  It put a huge smile on my face.  Anya is so so adorable.  And a wonderful job on the hat.  Love the lace work, very impressive.
