Kai is 7 months old now and it was time for a new hat!
The pattern is my creation, inspired by numerous hats I have made over the past few years…
It has a ribbed band with increases on the diagonal bias.
I added a ribbed neck band and a button closure. If it is not needed, the band can be taken around the back of the hat and buttoned to keep it out of the way.
Made from Miss Babs Yowza in Jive Talkin’.

The peak is exaggerated, stuffed with wool roving and topped off with a knit acorn!
The acorn is from the book 
“75 Birds, Butterflies & little beasts to knit and crochet” by Lesley Stanfield.

The rest of the photos are for cuteness sake. I could not choose so I included them all…
His purpley sweater is a Baby Surprise Jacket by EZ.
