I have so many friends having babies in the next few months, I thought I'd find a new baby hat pattern to make for each of them. I fell in love with this hat pattern the minute I saw it- the pattern can be found here. It totally reminds me of an armadillo. The biggest thing I like about the hat (besides that it's quick and easy to make) is that it will stay on a baby's head while they are in their car seat, it also covers up little baby ears so they stay warm.
I'm making 5 more hats in different colors- I'm in knitting heaven!
