September Featured Pattern - Double Triangles Baby Hat


Baby hats are so seriously my jam - on and off the needles before you have a chance to be bored with the knitting! They're also perfect for testing out new stitch patterns and using up leftover bits of yarn. As an added bonus, a baby hat goes a long way to helping newborns regulate their body temperature during the first few weeks, which can mean life or death in many parts of the world.

The Double Triangles baby hat pattern is a quick knit, perfectly suited for our September charity campaign - the design is perfect to knit for boy or girl babies. At right around 50 yards for the newborn size, you can bust through your leftover bits of yarn making baby hats for days without feeling bored! With our focus on babies all month, you can knit this hat in purple for the Click For Babies campaign or in any color you choose, which makes your hats perfect maternity ward donations!
