FO: A Little Hat

Project: Baby Blue Hat

Pattern: Lacy Julian Hat

Yarn: my new favorite- Berroco Vintage DK

Needles: Size 6 DPNs

For: My soon-to-be-born nephew #5 Levi

Cast On to Cast Off: about 5ish hours.

Notes: I wanted a quick little hat to partner with the Puerperium Cardigan I knit up for Levi and this was just the thing. I used size 6's to size down a little bit since the hat is intended for Levi as a newborn. The lacework was really simple and super easy to memorize a line at a time.

Things I Learned: Nothing new, though I did have a realization that I really don't love working on DPNS above a size 3 or so. I definitely need to check out the whole magic loop idea. I've given it a few half-hearted attempts in the past, but I think I need to give it a serious attempt on the next item I knit in that round on bigger needles.

Overall: Nice clear pattern, simple and quick knit. Loved it!


  1. I love dpns, I tried magic loop and did not like it one bit. I would rather be fiddly with dpns. Let me know what you think when you tackle it! Love your knits :)

  2. Awe it's so cute! I love baby things. I personally like magic loop a lot because you can't lose one of the needles like you can with dpns.
