I’m both a knitter and a crocheter and I like to combine both elements in patterns. This hat is a reflection of that. It’s only sized for itty, bitty babies right now and is probably only suitable for newborns or as a photography prop.

I’ll try to add a .pdf later this week. iPads are good for somethings but not others. Enjoy and hey I got it up on time. That Dexter marathon this weekend was good for something.
