This was a really fun project to do - I've made two of them now and the first one was a big hit with my friend.  Here is a picture of the second one:

I used Filatura di Crosa Zara, which is a little thinner than the yarn called for in the pattern - I used size 6 circulars and dpns, and cast on 80 stitches instead of 64.  That way when I got to the decreasing, I had 8 groups of 10 instead of 8 groups of 8.  It worked out perfectly.  This pattern was a great way to use up two almost-full balls of yarn I had sitting around from another baby project.

I was thinking of knitting some of these to donate to a hospital for premature babies, but am unsure of sizing/no. of stitches I would CO (still using US 7, 16" circular needles 'cuz they are all I have).  Any ideas, pals?

When I made my first one on a size 7 the hat turned out to be preemie size. I had to go up for a full-term cousin. You might just try following the pattern on 6's or 7's and see how it turns out.

I have made two of these hats - they're so cute!

My first one is here:

The one I made last night is here:

Baby fruit hat! It's hard to see, but it's peach with a green stem.

I also made booties to match the first hat because these hats use so little yarn, I had tons left over. Smiley

I used Patons Canadiana - I found it really cheap online -  and like most of you, my size 7 needle hat was a bit small, the size 8 hat (the fruit hat) came out more appropriately sized. Smiley

Oh, you gals (and guys?) are all such whizzes at this knitting thing!  I'm somewhat of a beginner, having just knitted scarves and dishcloths to this point, and I decided to tackle the umbilical cord hat as my first project on circular needles.  I was knitting along like wildfire until I got to the part where you have to switch onto double pointed needles.  HELP! Undecided  I can't figure out how to get the stitches onto the dpn...I'm sure it's not that hard, but having never used them before and knowing no one who knits, I turn to my craftster brainiacs for advice!  How exactly to you transfer the stitches.  I know it's hard to DESCRIBE knitting, but please try...unless you want to fly to saskatchewan and show me in person!

Once you've got the stitches on the circular needle sectioned off with the markers, just knit the next round off one end of the circular needle onto each double pointed needle 16 sts at a time. I'm sure you could slip them purlwise or something, but I think it's easier to just knit them off.

Once you make your first double-pointed needle project, you'll feel like you can do anything. I wouldn't recommend trying to fly or anything, but it's a pretty neat feeling.
