These are cute little hats for newborns designed to be worked as quickly as possible. As soon as the announcement comes in and you know if it’s a boy or a girl you can knit one up in a couple of hours or less. They can be knitted in the round, or worked flat and seamed up the back. Work in odds and ends of luxury yarns or budget yarns in your stash. Bobby is in green, red and gold (Rasta colours) Tommy is in blue and red stripes and Little Boy Blue and Pansy are in plain shades. All are finished with an I-Cord top knot but this could be left off, or two cords could be knitted to make a bow.
