Parker by theartofmegan, on Flickr

My son Parker was born last Sunday, and while I've been hanging out holding a sleeping baby on my chest, I've taken the opportunity to have some yarn in my hands. This beanie is made with Knit Picks Shine in worsted weight, but can be made in any soft worsted weight yarn. Machine washable is always a big bonus for babies, who I'm coming to find out are very messy! I came up with this very basic baby beanie with stripes of a coordinating color worked through the bottom. This hat pattern is quick, easy, and doesn't use much yarn at all.

Note: Stripe colors can either be carried up the back of the project, or can be trimmed and worked into the rows.

Size H crochet hook
Knit Picks Shine worsted weight yarn, 2 colors

Gauge: 8 sts x 4 rows in 2"x2", double crochet stitch

Lovely! And the hat is great too! I really like the subtle colours, and it looks like a good fit.
