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.
