At my church this week we are making hats for the babies at the hospital. I put together this really simple pattern. It knits up really quick and I know it will look so sweet on a brand new baby.
Paige made me sooo happy yesterday when she asked if I would teach her to knit. I had heard a cute little rhyme that helps children learn to knit and I read in a book that kids can learn as young as 4 or 5 so I gave it a shot. She totally gets the concept and does a great job! I sit right next to her and let her do as much as possible on her own. I am just there to help with mistakes and keep her on the right track. She recognizes when she did something wrong and asks me to help her. We are going at her pace and taking it slow. I want knitting to be a great experience for her. I am very impressed with her!
This hat is so simple and very cute! Here is the link to the cast on that I used. This hat fits 0-3 months. Happy knitting!
