Here's a cheerful seasonal project for the baby in your life, just in time for Christmas. We love it in Malabrigo Merino, a super-soft single ply that truly does not itch - perfect for tender babies' skin. It's fun in holiday colors, but also really cute in other hues. And it's so small, that it knits up quickly. You'll knit it on a circular needle, till you start reducing to shape the top of the hat; then you'll use double-pointed needles. This is not a beginner's project; you should be comfortable working with double-pointed needles. But since you're working with just two colors per row, it is a good first color work project. Happy Holidays!
