2011 Thing a Week - Week 28 - Lacy Ruffled Hat

Shelby's Place is closing and selling off their inventory for 50% off. I picked up a bunch of worsted weight merino sport yarn to knit baby hats since I know of a few babies that will be born in the next few months. When I grabbed this butter colored skein I almost put it back as it's a different sort of color, but when I found this pattern for it I knew it would be perfect.
I ended up finishing the i-cord the day Zoe was born, and we got to see her the next day! She was less than a day old!
The hat has you increase to 60 stitches for an infant hat and that just looked too small. I increased to 70 and of course that looked to big when I was finished. When we put it on the baby it fit great! It's of course a little big, but babies grow so fast in those first few months that this will fit for longer than a week. I love how it turned out and can't wait to make more!
