Newborn Hatstravaganza Wrap Up

I hope you all had as much fun as I did this week with these hats. If you did end up making a hat, I'd love to see a picture (and feature it on the site, if you like).
Newborn Hatstravaganza! Free hat patterns for the littlest heads from Make It Handmade.

Just to do a quick wrap up, here are the patterns we did this week.

The world's quickest  newborn hat-- the Bubble Gum Hat.
 The Pixie Hat-- which has an option to be made with just the knit stitch. No purls or decreases required.

The Bliss Hat-- I have to admit, I think this is my favorite.
 And... the Everything Hat... perfect for little boys, and those of us who don't like to follow patterns :) I love how this pattern is extra thick around the ears.
 I did get a request for a tutorial on making these flowers, which I'll try to share in the next few weeks. After a bit of fiddling, I think I've found an easy, simple way to make them and still have nice, rounded petals. :)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'll be taking the week off next week (um, to recover), and I"ll see you back here for the last week of March.
