    Thanks so much for bringing a great collection of patterns for baby hats. So often they are all for girls, but lots of these can be knit for baby boys, like the grandson we will have in May! Several of these look relatively easy to knit, too. Just can’t decide which one to knit first :- )

  4. Wanda says:

    Thank you so much for sharing these hat patterens with us things get kinda expensive when wanting to make something, it’s had to find just a patteren to buy, you end up having to by a book and there are a lot of things you don’t want to make in that book, again I do appricate you sharing.

    Thanks wanda, can’t wait to get started

  5. Lois Cody says:

    These are gorgeous baby hats . Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to try them out.

  6. Vi Staffetius says:

    In days gone by, it was relatively easy to find ladies who could knit a beanie without a pattern. Nowadays however, most ladies are like me in that they would not be able to gauage the needle size and wool type to even start. I, and a few of my neighbours and friends, are looking for easy patterns to make beanies for youngsters to wear when walking to the rural schools. The organizers are ‘Stitchwiches’
    Since we are using left-over wool, we need patterns and kneedle size for the options of double-knit and chunky. I hope you have some clever ladies who could help.
    Kind regards,
