Bambino Taffy Toddler Hat
It's pretty ironic that almost a year ago when I started this blog I started with a knitted baby hat and now a year later I'm knitting another baby hat. This time it's for a girl. Our friends are welcoming their 3rd daughter next month and I thought I'd knit them a cute hat.
I didn't have any yarn that was girlie enough though so I had to go shopping for some yarn. There are several yarn stores in Knoxville, TN but I hadn't been to any of them yet. I took the opportunity and headed to Loopville which is located in West Knoxville off of Kingston Pike. I really liked this store! It was a bit small for all the yarn they have in there but it was nice to see so many varieties. I also saw a few things I've never seen before like Be Sweet Bambino Taffy hat kits.
I couldn't resist. It has enough yarn to make one Sweetie Pie Hat which will fit ages 6 months to 1 year. The yarn is 70% organically grown cotton and 30% bamboo. They have all different colors including boys and girls but I fell in love with Peppermint Stick. It's also nice because on the yarn label has the Sweetie Pie Hat pattern on it. So, I left with Peppermint Stick and just finished the Sweetie Pie Hat. Isn't it cute? I love that it has hearts in it; so darling.
I also like that I was able to try a few things I've never done in knitting before like make bobbles and Icord.
Mine came out a little bit big, but she'll grow into it. If you'd like the pattern you can download it on Ravelry or it's on the label of each Bambino Taffy yarn.
