One more quick post before I take off. I just posted a new pattern in my Etsy and Ravelry stores! (You may need to be a Ravelry member to view that store.) This hat is one I've been working to get perfected for a while, and I'm so pleased that I got it done before leaving town.
This hat is one size - infant and fits the average 6-18 month old. I just love how the candle stands straight up! The "frosting" can be knit in any color - so this hat is perfect for the little boy OR little girl in your life. If you are comfortable knitting in the round then this pattern is simple enough even for beginning knitters. Making the baubles is especially fun!
